Bobst Lyon recently announced that it will be opening its Competence Center, a new 114 metre long demonstration facility spanning 2000 square metres, in September.
For the first time, Bobst Lyon will have its own showroom dedicated entirely to its equipment. Customers will be able to come and learn about its full production lines in real operating conditions. BOBST engineers and technicians will also use the Competence Center to improve their own skills and develop innovative new machines.
‘The Competence Center will play a key role in Bobst Lyon’s future business activities,’ Emmanuel Roquet added. ‘This strategic investment was made to develop our staff’s expertise in cardboard converting processes. In our industry, added value is measured not only in our capacity to build robust, accurate and efficient machines, but also in the service solutions we offer to support our customers and their use of our equipment.’
The next phase of the project to expand the Bron site is already scheduled to start this summer, with the construction of a building designed to bring together the whole subsidiary’s administrative staff as of early 2020.
