MPS and Drent Goebel Start Innovative Cooperation
DIDAM, The Netherlands—MPS, manufacturer of narrow web label and packaging UV flexo presses, recently announced an agreement with Drent Goebel, manufacturer of hybrid web offset presses for printing markets worldwide. Drent Goebel will deliver offset printing towers to MPS for integration into new MPS press lines.
MPS noticed an increasing demand for offset print quality in the narrow web label and packaging market. In reaction to this trend, the company asked Drent Goebel if they would be interested in supplying MPS with the necessary offset technology for their narrow web flexo presses. Rob J. Teunissen, CEO of Drent Goebel, said, “We are pleased to support MPS with our offset know-how and to deliver our offset technology in their narrow web presses.”
MPS is convinced that hybrid technology is the future for label and packaging printing, not just because of its flexibility and capability, but the packaging market needs solutions for optimized (brand) color accuracy, brightness, and sharp details. “The hybrid printing machine that MPS can now offer will fulfill the required print quality in the shortest possible time and lowest cost price per 1000 labels,” says Eric Hoendervangers, managing director of MPS.
