Located in Hanam, South Korea, Youngshin P&L has taken the first step in switching from letterpress to flexo by installing its first flexo press, a Nilpeter FA-17.

With nine letterpress machines, Youngshin is a well-established premier converter in South Korea, serving many premium brand owners in FMCG (Fast-Moving Consumer Goods), Food & Beverage, and Cosmetics.

‘We wanted to be one among the first converters to make the transition from letterpress to flexo in Korea’ stated Lee Seung Hyun, managing director of Youngshin P&L. ‘We were able to run our first production on the FA-Line within six weeks of arrival on site, which by far exceeded our expectations.’

‘In further anticipation of replacing many of our aging letterpress machines, we are now looking into buying a second FA-Line, which will take us into the future as one of South-Korea’s flexo pioneers,’ Mr Lee concluded.
