Imex does not only functions as a converter, it also sells rolls of paper and cardboard in different widths and gauges. We can offer paper in many different sizes”, he emphasizes. With this sheeter, the company consolidated itself as a plant that provides cutting paper services: “That machine allows us to cut from low weight paper up to cardboard.
