Hexxa Flexible Packaging, Ras Al Khaimah, UAE, has taken delivery of its first MPS flexo press, with a 10-colour, 430mm EF multi-substrate press equipped with the advanced Automated Print Control (APC) package for full automation, UV dryers and four hot air units.
Hexxa has recently invested in larger premises in Ras al Khaimah. With its new MPS flexo press, the company is set to achieve higher productivity in shorter print runs, as Raja Gandhi, MD and owner of Hexxa Flexible Packaging said: "We needed a narrow web flexo press to offer more competitive prices on shorter print runs. MPS offered the highest European quality machine, proven in an impressive demonstration at their headquarters in the Netherlands. Throughout the sales consultation, the MPS representatives were very open and honest with us. This is why we chose MPS as our flexo partner."
Initial introductions to MPS were made by Anoop, the local MPS representative for the ME, at Labelexpo Europe 2015. Matthijs Stevens, MPS area sales manager, described the sale as "an exciting milestone for us", and said: "With Anoop as our local agent, MPS offers this emerging region a well-connected and extensive local service network. This is just the beginning of more growth for MPS in the Middle East."
On January 24 and 25, 2017 Hexxa Flexible Packaging will show its new MPS EF 430 press during an Open House at the company’s new premises.
