Now Coreti produces adhesive labels, going through a big growth and expansion in the last few years. According to the company, this brought Coreti among the top-ten label printers of Spain.

It is located on a surface of more than 7000 m2 and counts on 4500 m2 of built area with 1000 m2 dedicated to offices on three floors.
“This larger infrastructure allowed us to expand our production capacity and to support Coreti’s expansion and growth in the last few years”, explains González . “We can rely on a wide commercial network that includes Spanish territory as well as a part of Portugal, even if our labels go much farther. We have started to export our labels to other countries, but we are already present in every country thanks to the growth and the expansion of our customers. As we grow with them, our labels always accompany their product everywhere”.
Coreti’s CEO comments: “Technologies at our disposal allow us to offer a wide range of solutions to our current and potential clients, including silk-screen, glitter, hot stamping, varnishing, embossing, special die-cuts, variable data or backside printing, booklet labels, and others.” According to him, in the production of labels for wine, beer and oil sectors, they grow in volume, year after year.
Its focus on service is part of their solutions, so González explains: “We inform, suggest and help solving problems, because we are not only label producer. We try to get to know our customers and their products, in order to help them with the best dedicated suggestions”.
The collaboration with OMET
“The cooperation with Omet started at the beginning of 2017”, states González. “With he installation of one Omet XFlex X5 with ten colours. A new model dedicated to the production of label but also prepared to print on flexible packaging and on folding carton up to 250 g. In addition to this purchase, we bought two other presses from Omet, another XFlex X5 with six colours and a four-colour iFlex”.
González adds: “The XFlex X5 is an ergonomic printing system that does not require a direct intervention of the operator, thanks to the Vision 1 system for automatic register adjustment and control. You can work with different materials and, both rigid and flexibles, maintaining a basic configuration. It also permits to use both UV ink and water-based ink, if the press is equipped with a combined drying system with hot air and UV cassettes. This press integrates a chill drum on every print unit, which prevents the heat from affecting the substrate, a crucial detail if you work with films or plastic materials. “
He concludes: “The in-line integration of silkscreen printing unit, cold-foil, web turn bars, print on adhesive significantly reduce waste levels, time of set-up and run-to-register. With OMET presses we can make peel and seal jobs quickly and easily and they gave us the opportunity to integrate silk-screen printing technology, being able to produce labels that require up to 10 colours, one of which printed with silk-screen unit. The service has always provided fast and clear support to the few problems we have had until now”.
