The history of this company began as a small printing company that provided a case-making service for a company that ended up being acquired by L'Oreal. "Today, L'Oreal continues to be one of our reference clients”, Says Alejandro García Angulo, CEO of BOHE.
BOHE has been through three stages, the first was the foundation and development between two partners. Later, the management passed into the hands of a second generation in which descendants and relatives of the founders enter. And, the most recent one that begins in 2008, in which the company is acquired by the company dedicated to the graphic arts Torreangulo.
Torreangulo, which already had purchased from Graphic Supplies in 2006 With the intention of diversifying its activities towards packaging, this company has been consolidated with BOHE in order to form a strong company with the necessary resources to continue successfully in the high value-added packaging market. "At BOHE we are dedicated from the beginning to a very specific segment, perfumery, cosmetics and parapharmacy”, Explains Alejandro García Angulo.
"Within packaging we are experts in high added value products. For this we have specific equipment and specialized personnel with a lot of experience », says Alejandro García Angulo. "BOHE has always stood out for adding value to the packaging that our client needs. The sector in which this contribution of value is highly appreciated today is perfumery and cosmetics »
80 people work at BOHE who in 2011 helped the company to invoice around 13 million euros. Even though most of these sales are made in Spain, it is worth noting the gradual increase in sales outside the national territory. "In recent years, a great commercial effort has been made in the field of export and the fruits are beginning to be harvested now.”Comments its Director. Corporate social responsibility and respect for the environment are a fundamental part of the processes of this company and, therefore, they have both FSC and PEFC certification since 2009.
The technological evolution of the cases requires adaptations also in the machinery park. BOHE has integrated all the processes necessary for the production of cases with the exception of the lamination that is subcontracted to specialists in the field. "We needed a machine with current technology and with more bodies. Until now we had machines with five bodies and it was necessary for us to have a six-body press plus varnishing in line”, Says Alejandro García Angulo, referring to the reasons for acquiring the Komori Lithrone S40.
The company has in its production park the Komori Lithrone S40 with six bodies plus varnish, a Heidelberg with five colors, and an additional Komori with two bodies plus varnish. All presses print with UV inks.
"We have a long relationship with OMC”, Says Alejandro García Angulo. "We are in a dynamic that leads us to have the most advanced technology. Our need to update the park is not so much due to the obsolescence of the equipment as to the need to be at the forefront of technology ".
"We ran several tests of the press and it perfectly fulfilled the entire test plan”, Says Alejandro García Angulo. "We already had a successful track record, both in production and service, with our veteran two-color Komori”. Komori's strength and recognized reputation within the value-added packaging industry has led the Japanese manufacturer to leadership in UV printing technology. This leadership is demonstrated in facilities such as BOHE's, designed to produce productions of the highest quality and technical sophistication.
"The experience in the response of the OMC technical service throughout the time that we have been working with the most veteran Komori gives us the confidence to count on them for this operation”, Adds Alejandro García Angulo. "Knowing that if there is an incident at seven o'clock in the afternoon there will be an efficient response can be saving us from twelve to fourteen hours of machine downtime. We have this service in OMC thanks to the maintenance contracts that we have signed ".
