Etpa Packaging installs fourth MPS flexo press

Greek converter Etpa Packaging invests in its fourth MPS press in six years

Etpa Packaging has purchased an EFA+ fully automated multi-substrate flexo press with ‘talk to me’ connectivity. This is the fourth MPS press ordered by the Greek converter in six years.

Etpa Packaging is one of the largest labels and flexible packaging printers in Greece, with offices in Athens, Thessaloniki, Nicosia, and Crete and a production facility located in the industrial region of Komotini. The converter specializes in self-adhesive labels, booklets, multi-layered labels, security tags, and shrink sleeves.

‘The MPS presses in my production facility allow me to sleep well at night,’ said Giannis Sfatkidis, production manager at Etpa Packaging. ‘MPS has been always quick to take care of any issues and has proven to deliver very reliable machines.’

‘This sale marks another milestone for MPS,’ added Sebastiaan Rakhorst, MPS regional sales director for Central and Southeast Europe. ‘Etpa Packaging was the first to purchase an MPS press in Greece. With this fourth press investment, MPS has proven its commitment to printing productivity by supplying operator-focused and results-driven machines. We also thank Max’s Valtsanis, the local MPS agent for their ongoing support and trust in Greece.’

The EFA+ installed at Etpa Packaging production plant is a fully automated multi-substrate flexo press designed for label production and flexible packaging printing on various substrates. It enables operators to maximize press performance, thanks to its high level of automation and ease of operation. The press also features the MPS’s ‘talk to me’ connectivity platform for data exchange, performance monitoring, pre-loading of job settings and remote support.
