Towards High Quality and Resource Efficient Printing

SRL Canpas Cop was founded in 2002 in Chisinau. The main activity of the company is to produce color labels of any shape and complexity on plain and self-adhesive paper, polypropylene and any other material compatible with flexographic technology. With the aim of raising its production quality while improving environmental compliance and health and safety of the workforce the company invested in upgrading its machinery.

The new machinery consumes less energy and also reduces wastes that normally occur in printing processes. It also conforms with the Health and Safety aspect defined by the European Union. The implementation of the investment will ensure the highest level of safety.

The investment was financed with a EU4Business-EBRD Credit line loan and the company received free-of-charge technical support from the team of international experts or the optimization of the investment.  After the successful project verification SRL Canpas Cop received 15% of the loan amount as a grant cashback, funded under the EU4Business initiative of the European Union.
