As the next step in MPS’s strategy to expand its local presence in Asia, the Dutch narrow web press manufacturer will establish an official Asia branch office in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia early in 2018.
MPS has identified Asia as a market with ‘significant growth potential’. The new office in Kuala Lumpur will extended its presence and level of service offered in the region.
‘These are very exciting times for MPS in Asia,’ commented Wim van den Bosch, MPS CEO. ‘With our official MPS Asia office in Malaysia, a demo center in Japan and regional representation in the complete Southeast Asia region, our presence will be vast with a strong service network for existing and new MPS customers. We are ready to show Asia how MPS is truly “Operator Focused, Results Driven”.’
Tim Klappe has been appointed MPS Asia-Pacific managing director. ‘Asia is a market with significant growth potential,’ said Klappe. ‘MPS has already built a reputable name in the Asian label and flexible packaging industry. ‘Needed was elevated local MPS presence and service, which will now be offered. I am honoured to be part of this well-respected, innovative organization and excited to help bolster its market share in Asia.’
