“We did scour the market for the currently available options in this segment but eventually concluded to proceed with Durst Tau 330 RSC for its consistent quality, high productivity and very economical production cost, which are all factors that enable us to offer high-quality labels and packaging solutions to our customers in UAE,” he added.
