MPS recorded two sales of its EF Symjet at Labelexpo Europe 217, with Dutch printer Etikettendrukkerij Noord Nederland (EDNN) and US-based DWS Printing signing for its hybrid press.
Vincent Belksma, general manager at EDNN, said: ‘We were looking for a versatile press that could print perfect quality, especially on shorter runs. This hybrid printing solution from MPS and Domino with in-line finishing fits our needs perfectly and is a great addition to our machine park.
EDNN is the first Dutch company to invest in an MPS EF Symjet, with DWS Printing the second in the US with Meyers, a Minneapolis-based label, card, signage and display company, purchasing the first.
DWS Printing has purchased its first MPS press with the EF Symjet investment. Brothers Tom and Andy Staib, who manage the company, visited the MPS Technology and Expertise Centre at the supplier’s headquarters in Arnhem earlier this year for live demonstrations before signing for their press at Labelexpo.
Eric Hoendervangers, co-founder and commercial director at MPS, said: ‘When we introduced the EF Symjet at Labelexpo Europe 2015, we knew the market needed time to get used to the idea of hybrid printing. With the sale of two presses at the show, marking the first in The Netherlands and the second in the US, our customers have proven to be ready for the future.’
