OKI Europe enters the flexible packaging print market partnering with SIHL GMBH

London, UK, 1st May 2023 –OKI Europe Limited are pleased to announce a key strategic partnership with SIHL GMBH to provide solutions directly printing on to premade resealable synthetic stand-up pouches.

Building on the outstanding media handling of the OKI Pro9xxx series print devices, OKI and SIHL have worked closely to develop a toner printable pouch to address the fast growing short run pouch market.

Addressing a wide range of applications from coffee to cosmetics, protein powders to pet treats, spices to sports supplements, sweets and snacks and many more, the markets for re-sealable barrier pouches are plentiful.  

“As a part of OKI’s continued expansion in providing solutions for in house printing direct to packaging, this important development of premium synthetic pouch media from SIHL provides outstanding results on the OKI Pro9000 range of printers and are the perfect match to suit these high quality application requirements that customers demand, giving businesses the ability to quickly print short runs on demand, with no minimum order quantities and no wastage. 
Recognising how important it is for companies to take control of their production processes, reduce time to market and increase the premium look and feel of their products, SIHL have created this range of pouches”.
Rob Brown, EMEA Head of Business Development, Pro Series.
“The pouches offer plenty of space on the front and back for an appealing and personalised design and information on ingredients and additives. Due to the oval welded bottom, the bag remains upright and offers an attractive product presentation at the point of sale. By using the optional zipper, products remain fresh for a long time due to the reclosure.” 
Ronny Kunze, Director Global Business Development & Commercialisation
