UK-based Paramount Labels & Tags has installed its first 8-color MPS EB 370 flexo press with a further plan to invest into two more presses by 2020 with the aim to provide faster service and maximize return for its customers.

‘We had three 6-color flexo presses along with a digital inkjet press and various finishing equipment, but we needed to upgrade one of the presses. We started to look at various 8-color flexo presses, this would help us push our sales team into different markets and enable us to produce a higher quality print than the existing presses at a much higher speed. This then would enable us to provide a better cost for our customers, by allowing us to put more work through this new press,’ said Phil Wright, managing director of paramount Labels & Tags.

Paramount Labels then looked at all the major machine manufacturers that would suit their needs. According to the company, its limited floor space led to a choice of three manufacturers.

‘We chose MPS because of the presence and reputation that they have in the marketplace regarding build quality and reliability. We also had very positive recommendations from other label manufacturers that had chosen MPS, which also helped when making our final decision. We looked at the ease of operation and set-up times along with press run speeds and were very impressed by the performance of the press.

'MPS were very helpful in identifying ancillary equipment that we would need and were a constant source of information when we needed any help during the project. When we first embarked on this project, we set a budget that we really didn’t want to go beyond, MPS were instrumental in making sure that the project respected this and did all they could to ensure that we got the best possible deal throughout the entire process,’ added Wright.

Nick Tyrer, Sales Director of MPS Systems UK, commented: ‘We are of course delighted that Paramount Labels made MPS their chosen supplier.  It’s always great to be able to supply a press to a growing company such as Paramount Labels, in a small way you want to be part of the reason that they reach their goals and achieve the success they deserve.  It’s been a real pleasure and a privilege to get to know Phil and the team at Paramount, we sincerely hope that they continue their success story and grow as they intend.’
