“We are very excited to open a state-of-the-art North American Demo & Applications Technology Center together with Green Bay Packaging,” according to Kees Nijenhuis, Vice President of MPS Systems North America. “In our new Technology Center we are going to show our potential customers something special, that is why we have decided to install a 10 color 17 inch wide EF press with all the bells and whistles. The EF is our automated multi substrate press and future proof press platform. In our Technology Center we are going to show our potential customers what is possible when we push the limits when it comes to productivity, flexo print quality and flexible converting.”
The new Demo & Applications Technology Center is part of the local organization of MPS in North America, which includes local press manufacturing, technical consultancy, sales and marketing.
