Unswayed by concerns over the cost and challenges associated with running water-based inks, the company, armed with a 52” 10c MIRAFLEX flexographic press from W&H, made a resolute choice in favor of environmental sustainability.

A glance at the impressive array of print samples on the conference room wall attests to the exceptional print quality achieved by the Ultimate team. Kiran Jhaveri, Plant Manager, attributes much of this success to Brian Gabon, Press Supervisor, and the press team, who mastered flexo printing through determination, hands-on experience, and training programs provided by the Flexographic Technical Association (FTA).

Ultimate Flex, established as the flexible packaging division in the Ultimate Paper Box family, aligns seamlessly with its parent company’s ethos. Both entities prioritize the use of cutting-edge manufacturing equipment and champion environmentally conscious practices.

If you think Patel’s interests lie just in printing and paper boxes,think again! Beyond the packaging realm, he diversified his interests in 2018 by acquiring Ultimate Vineyards and Maurice Car’rie Winery in Temecula, CA. Cheers to that!
