Soma Engineering has officially opened its Vila Globe conference facility, a 500 sq m addition adjacent to its demonstration and training centre. The opening of the new facility was combined with the company’s second annual flexo conference in May featuring on new pre-press technology, Smart technologies and short run packaging production.
Together with the partner companies that form the Soma Globe Alliance it is anticipated that the new facility will host regular annual conferences on a wide range of printing and packaging technologies. The facility marks another milestone in the company’s 20-year history of manufacturing machinery for printing and flexible packaging and will be used to develop new ideas and offer technical solutions and training for both new and existing customers.
Located just a few metres away from the Soma Globe training & demonstration centre the former private dwelling and cold store was especially converted for training purposes and forms part of an up to one million Euro investment program. The facility is capable of housing up to 25 people classroom style and can be expanded to hold up to 70 for conference programs.
