British label converter Interket purchased an 8-color, fully automated MPS EFA 530 flexographic press to expand its capacity and broaden into new markets. It is the seventh MPS press installed by Interket Group.
‘In addition to expanding our flexo printing strength for on-roll self-adhesive labels, we are looking to broaden into new markets, and increasing our security product offering,’ said Tim Pattison, sales and operations director at Interket UK. ‘Booklet multi-layer labels are a specialty, we are seriously considering, which our new MPS press is perfectly capable of producing.’
Positive experiences with their previously installed MPS printing machines led Interket UK to choose another MPS press.
Vince Hughes, production and technical manager at Interket UK, added: ‘We are happy to have such a good relationship with MPS. As our press supplier, there definitely is a long-term partnership strategy in place, and together with MPS we look forward to a successful future.’
‘It’s a pleasure to see Interket UK invest and grow with MPS machinery at its core, not only here in the UK, but across the whole Interket Group, said Nick Tyrer, sales director of MPS UK. ‘Interket UK laid the fundamental platform for the partnership and Tim and Vince have been invaluable in making this partnership the success that it is today. This third machine is a little more diverse than the previous two machines, so it will be interesting to see Interket UK spread their wings into different and more diverse market sectors.’
The sale of Interket UK’s new MPS EFA 530 press with ‘+’ package for full automation of all print pressure settings was signed during Labelexpo Europe 2019, as one of twelve presses sold during the show.
