Outlook Group is a leading printer of pressure-sensitive labels, flexible packaging and folding cartons. In October 2016, Outlook Group announced its merger with M&Q Packaging under M&Q Holdings. The purchase of a second MPS press is part of Outlook’s growth strategy.
According to Kees Nijenhuis, vp-MPS Systems North America, Outlook Group purchased a 17-in., 8-color EF press with automated print pressure settings. “We are very proud to share that our partnership with Outlook has been a real success and that the EF platform has helped Outlook Group to continue their growth. The EF platform has proven to be a very successful platform in the North American market as it is a real future proof press platform, helping our customers to grow in today’s increasingly dynamic and competitive markets."
“We looked at the success of our first machine from the standpoint of production speed, waste reduction and print quality,” adds Brett Peters, senior process engineer-Outlook Group. “We tracked press metrics very closely. The opportunity to add a second machine presented itself and we were able to quickly justify this project and move forward.” Furthermore, he says that his team is especially excited about the EF’s ability to print extremely thin films while holding a very tight register, along with its operator interface and ease of use.
