MPS has appointed Inti Digital Grafika (IDG) as its new local agent for the Indonesian market.

Owned by Ahmad Sopian and based in Indonesia’s capital of Jakarta, IDG brings active engagement in the narrow web printing industry since 2004. ‘We have a vast network in the Indonesian label and flexible packaging markets that can benefit from investing in MPS presses to boost productivity,’ said Sopian.

The appointment of IDG as local representative in Indonesia is part of MPS’ strategy to expand its presence in Asia. Wim van den Bosch, MPS CEO, commented: ‘After building up a reputable presence in Western Europe since our founding in 1996, we then expanded globally with an increased focus on North America in establishing local sales, installation, service and assembly operations.

‘We are now well positioned to increase our market share in Asia – the appointment of IDG as our agent in Indonesia is an important step in this process.’

Sopian received extensive training at the MPS headquarters in the Netherlands for flexo, offset, and hybrid printing products with additional technical training on-site for IDG’s service engineers.

IDG has already made its first MPS sale, with an EF 340 press going to Surya Baru.
