First MPS EXL-Offset Press for Ulrich Etiketten

A worldwide, well-known and high-quality brand of UV flexo and offset press solutions for label and packaging printers, MPS today announced the sale of an EXL-offset press with 8 colour UV print stations and a web width of 430mm to Austrian label printer Ulrich Etiketten. The EXL-offset press will expand their production of self-adhesive, booklet and other specialty labels and marks the 7th MPS press for Ulrich Etiketten, joining six installed MPS flexo presses.

Ulrich Etiketten, a fifth-generation family business since 1868, is an Austrian market leader and highly reputable throughout Europe for the production of self-adhesive labels. The company selected the MPS EXL-offset press based on innovative technology, attractive price point, and reliability with the successful performance of their existing six MPS EF flexo presses. The EXL-offset press built with variable sleeves combines six offset print with two flexo print stations, and will be equipped with various converting units such as multi-lamination and de-lam/re-lam for the printing of booklet labels.

M.A. Florian Ulrich, CEO of Ulrich Etiketten comments: “We are very happy with MPS. The quality of MPS presses and our long-term relationship led to our decision to once again opt for an MPS press.”

Eric Hoendervangers, co-founder of MPS comments: “We see it as a great compliment that a quality-oriented Austrian company such as Ulrich Etiketten has opted for our EXL-offset press. MPS has a very high rate of repeat customer sales, however when a loyal MPS flexo customer adds a first MPS offset press to its machine park, it confirms that our technology, service, and printing knowledge helps label printers in their success. In general, we have noticed a growing interest at an international level for our EXL-offset presses since its initial launch at Labelexpo Europe 2011.”
