Flexofit at Drupa 2016

Now that the Drupa 2016 is over and we are back from Düsseldorf, we want to share our impressions of the world famous trade show with you. This was the first Drupa for Flexofit as a company and we found it hugely successful. Our booth saw visitors from all over the world and we had intensive conversations about the development of the international printing market with prospects as well as with journalists and friends from the industry.
