The emerging Jordan
ian Market

Last 30th June Stefano De Paolis, Product Manager at GAMA International, participated in the event in Amman, Jordan, where he presented the whole series of GAMA water and solvent based viscometers, together with the G30 model for lacquers and adhesive materials. Last but not least, most of the interest was reserved to the presentation of the new CCSone system for the control of ink consumption.

Jordanian companies welcomed this innovative seminar, in particular ten flexographic printers and two important rotogravure printers took part in the event and could appreciate the presentations about the circular economy, to which new technologies are of course oriented.

«We think this is the right time to focus on African and Middle Eastern markets, since the printers are looking for technologies to improve their processes and implement their plants – comments Giuseppe Carretti, Area Sales Director at GAMA International –. The packaging market is growing in Africa and in the Middle East, in particular in Jordan, where converters are now able to play a role to satisfy this market».
