Rottaprint chose MPS for their focus on printing productivity and team of application specialists with extensive knowledge in shrink sleeve label production.

“We are very pleased that Rottaprint chose MPS,” said Sebastiaan Rakhorst, MPS regional sales director for Central and Southeast Europe. “The purchase process was comprehensive, involving in-depth knowledge sharing with MPS customers in the Netherlands & Spain and two days spent at MPS headquarters in Arnhem for live press demonstrations. We also visited Rottaprint on-site to learn more about their production environment and company strategy in the years ahead.”

Advanced automation with EFA+ package

The MPS EFA is a top quality, multi-substrate presses designed for printing labels and flexible packaging on any material, varying from thin unsupported films, self-adhesive labels, shrink sleeves and cartonboard up to 450μm.
