Broad Interest for MPS Flexo Presses at Label Summit Latin America

MPS reports a record attendance in the MPS stand during Label Summit Latin America held April 21-22 in Mexico City’s World Trade Center. Visitors were attracted to the stand to learn more about the recently launched MPS EB flexo press and features of the EF multi-substrate press, in addition to the launch of manufacturing MPS presses in the USA. The two-day conference and table-top exhibition is the largest gathering for the label and package printing industry in Latin America.

MPS has a leading and well-established presence in Mexico, and welcomed many of its successful customers in the stand. MPS director Eric Hoendervangers represented the MPS management team at the summit, and was joined by MPS Latin America Inc. and agent ProFlexo International Inc., who provide local MPS sales and service throughout Latin America. Presented was the EB press, a cost-effective alternative in flexo printing, featuring a solid machine construction with self-evident high print quality, predictable and reliable productivity, and an operator-friendly press operation. The EB press is a solution for companies starting out in label production and established printers wishing to expand their label production with a cost-effective label press.

Also featured was the MPS EF flexo press, a high-quality and highly automated multi-substrate flexo press, especially designed for label production and flexible packaging printing on a variety of substrates including thin film, paper, cartonboard, shrink sleeves, in-mold, tube laminate and flexible packaging. The EF is MPS’s flagship press, offering a choice of either plate rolls or print sleeves, providing the ultimate in flexibility and maximizing press performance, thanks to its ease of operation and reliability.

“Label Summit Latin America 2015 was very successful for MPS,” said Hoendervangers. “The number of visitors exceeded the previous summit with double digits. Printers and converters were impressed by the solutions MPS offers with both the EF and EB press lines. The new EB press is seen as a game changer for the Mexican label printing industry, because of its cost-effectiveness for short and long label print runs.”

MPS agent ProFlexo International Inc. recently joined the Mexican label association Ametiq AC. Fernando de la Cueva, area sales manager for ProFlexo Mexico, was invited to hand out a prominent award during the first edition of the Latin American Label Awards, organized by Ametiq. Jaime Dagnino, Regional Director for MPS Latin America said: “We are proud to have participated in the first edition of the Latin American Label Awards. We look forward to continued support of Ametiq and our customers in Latin America.”
