MPS Systems Asia appoints Müller Korea as local agent in South Korea

Local representation for MPS flexo, hybrid and offset printing solutions in South Korea is now provided by Müller Korea. MPS Systems Asia, with headquarters in Malaysia, made the agreement with Müller Korea in the latter half of 2019.

Established in 1997, Müller Korea is located in central Seoul and is well connected to the label and packaging industry in addition to newspaper, book bindery and commercial printing. The company is also an agent for Muller Martini, a worldwide organization that manufactures, markets and services a full range of post-press finishing equipment.

NY Cho, Managing Director of Müller Korea explained the choice to partner with MPS: “In printing presses, our customers want superior quality and productivity, as well as flexibility in substrates – an essential strength to produce value-added labels.

“Awareness of state-of-the-art & eco-friendly printing equipment has increased, and Korean printers place a high importance on quality control. MPS presses have proven all these requirements and are designed to be extremely flexible and easy to operate. For us, it is the ideal partnership to meet our customer’s expectations.”

In addition to sales support, Müller Korea provides a strong service and engineering organization with a policy to visit customers onsite within two hours from the initial request.

At K-Print 2018, MPS Systems Asia demonstrated an 8 colour EF 530 flexo press printing wrap around labels with micro text on thin film, which attracted great interest from Korean printers. “Showing a press running at 200 m/min on a 20” substrate confirmed the enormous productivity that MPS presses can achieve - from simple labels to complicated multi-layer labels, shrink sleeves, and various packaging materials,” said Tim Klappe, MPS Systems Asia Managing Director.

“With Müller Korea’s expertise in label and packaging printing and highly responsive sales and service support, our current and new customers that choose MPS printing presses are in good hands.”
