MPS Systems North America Inc. has named Northern Graphic Solutions Inc. as its distributor of its flexo and offset presses in central and eastern Canada. MPS, with its global headquarters in the Netherlands, manufactures printing and converting machines for the pressure-sensitive and packaging printing markets.
“We are excited to join the MPS team,” said Jerry Wynia, President of NGS. “We truly believe MPS is the leader in print quality and production efficiencies, offering its customers a real competitive advantage with today’s challenges.”
MPS has been selling and servicing its presses in North America for several years, and in May 2014 the company announced it was strengthening that presence by expanding its sales, installation, service and assembly operations. MPS states its new partnership with NGS is another step in fulfilling this goal.
“By combining the technical innovation and high quality manufacturing of MPS with the market knowledge and customer service of NGS, we can optimally satisfy the needs of the Canadian market,” said Kees Nijenhuis, MPS’ vice president of North American operations.
One of the flexo presses NGS is offering is MPS’ flagship EF printing press. The EF is an automated, multi-substrate press available at 13-, 17- and 20-inch formats, which includes the Crisp.Dot technology and features a choice of either plate rolls or print sleeves. The press features both UV and hot-air drying technology, allowing users to print diverse substrates including film, paper, shrink sleeves and flexible packaging.
