MPS has consolidated its representation in Australia and New Zealand through Nekkorb.
The decision was made due to economic growth and a growing number of printing companies with MPS presses in both countries.
Founded in 2009 by Frank Brokken, who brings more than 35 years of experience in the printing industry, Nekkorb supplies capital equipment and consumables to the New Zealand and Australia web printing industries. It represents a wide range of products to enhance a printer’s manufacturing process.
Tim Klappe, managing director, MPS Systems Asia, said: ‘Working with one agent in Australia and New Zealand is a strategic choice we had to make. The overlap between the two areas is rapidly increasing: having one MPS agent streamlines communication and provides more clarity for our customers.
‘We have always worked with great pleasure alongside Maxteq, but it was time to make a change in the best interest of our customers. Because of our long-standing relationship with Nekkorb and its installed base both in New Zealand and Australia, we trust it can deliver the best local service and support to label and packaging printers in this combined region.’
