Master Label has acquired a 22in Nilpeter FA-Line with 12 UV-flexo printing units, gravure, and cold foil making it the largest flexo press installation in Indonesia for the Danish manufacturer.

Master Label is a family-owned company with more than 30 years of experience in the industry. It supplies health and beauty labels for high-end brand owners in the region, in addition to labels and flexible packaging products in food and beverage, household care, pharmaceuticals, special chemicals and smart packaging.

The flexo press was delivered to the Indonesian converter at the height of the Covid-19 pandemic, making this a very challenging installation with adhering to all social distancing guidelines.

‘Nilpeter and the new FA-Line is the ideal choice for us to further cement our position as Indonesia’s premier printing company,’ commented Dharmadi Bongso, owner of Master Label. ‘We look forward to a long and rewarding partnership with Nilpeter concerning printing presses, consumables, and ancillary equipment.

‘The new investment will take Master Label to a new level through higher production efficiency and printing quality. The new FA-22 is configured to a degree where we can meet all demands from the market, while also exploring new opportunities. Since installation, we’ve run shrink sleeves, PE-material, tobacco, and long-run label jobs, benefitting from faster changeovers, easy setup, and extremely good material handling. The press has a technical specification, which enables us to cater to the label printing market as well as the flexible packaging market, which continues to grow in Indonesia.’

The order from Master Label is a direct result of Nilpeter’s intensified effort in Indonesia. Since the beginning of 2018, Nilpeter Asia Pacific has operated a sub-company from Jakarta.

‘This is a credit to our commitment to the Indonesian market. Since our new office in Jakarta was established, we have been able to support the Indonesian Nilpeter users even better,’ said John Andersen, managing director, Nilpeter Asia Pacific. ‘We already have a 24/7-hotline service in place on all Nilpeter presses, but the physical presence is sometimes required. Delivering great service to our customers is really important to Nilpeter and our team in Jakarta is able to support all of Indonesia instantly.’

‘Nilpeter and Master Label have been working together for years, but it is not until now that we have installed a Nilpeter press in this unique configuration in the Master Label Jakarta factory. We are really happy to see the partnership strengthen and look forward to support Master Label in the future. Needless to say, Master Label strongly underlines its position as a leading printer in the region,’ concluded Andersen.
