A household name in the south Indian label manufacturing industry, Chennai-based Pioneer Arunachalam Packaging has always been at the forefront of offering labels that stand out amid the crowds and differentiate from the competitors. What it takes to produce the outstanding labels is the company’s robust team of experienced printing and production professionals powered by a line of advanced presses and post-press machines, among which a Rhyguan Plus-420 converting & finishing Machine is the latest addition.
The new Rhyguan Plus-420 converting & finishing machine added to the line of post-press machines at Pioneer Arunachalam Packaging is supplied and installed by Flexo Image Graphics Pvt. Ltd. (FIG).

Apart from their range of advanced and versatile machines, we are quite happy and satisfied with the way their after-sales technical support team, led by M Suresh, helps us precisely know the technical know-hows as well as the productive operation of the machines they supply,” says Arun Tenzing, Director, Pioneer Arunachalam Packaging Pvt Ltd.
