As the next step in MPS’ strategy to expand local presence in Asia, the Dutch-based narrow-web press manufacturer will establish an official Asia branch office in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia early in 2018. Leading operations of the new branch will be Tim Klappe, who joined MPS on December 1, 2017 as managing director Asia Pacific.
“These are very exciting times for MPS in Asia,” commented Wim van den Bosch, CEO of MPS. “With our official MPS Asia office in Malaysia, a demo center in Japan, and regional representation in the complete Southeast Asia region, our presence will be vast with a strong service network for existing and new MPS customers. We are ready to show Asia how MPS is truly ‘Operator Focused, Results Driven’.”
“Asia is a market with significant growth potential, and MPS has already built a reputable name in the Asian label and flexible packaging industry,” added Klappe. “Needed was elevated local MPS presence and service, which will now be offered. I am honoured to be part of this well-respected, innovative organization and excited to help bolster its market share in Asia.”
