BOBST & Simpex Roadshow Fosters Saudi Packaging Sector

Packaging professionals from across Saudi Arabia have come together to discuss innovations transforming the sector at a successful BOBST and Simpex roadshow.

Simpex, a leading Saudi company in paper and board trading with an extensive regional service and logistics network, was announced as BOBST’s agent and distributor in Saudi Arabia for all its product lines across folding carton, corrugated, flexible packaging, and labels, in October 2023.
