The MPS EF is a high-quality and highly automated multi-substrate flexo press, especially designed for label production and flexible-packaging printing on thin, unsupported film or thick cartonboard. Providing the ultimate in flexibility, the EF enables operators to maximize press performance, thanks to its ease of operation and reliability.
Brett Prawde, CEO of Universal Labels & Packaging, says, "It is always a pleasure to invest in another MPS press. This will be our fourth, and I guarantee not our last. Over the past 15 years we have built a strong and most importantly honest relationship with MPS that can be counted on, which these days is rare. We look forward to turning on another great press and running it flat out."
In addition to MPS presses, Universal Labels also purchases its flexible dies, print cylinders, and rotary dies through ROTOCON.
In 2014, Universal Labels & Packaging and Labelpak joined forces, bringing together two of Johannesburg's longest-established label printing companies. Operating 16 printing presses including digital, offset and flexographic in an ultra-modern 8,000-sq-meter manufacturing facility in Midrand, Universal produces world-class p-s labels, wraparound labels, in-mold labels, shrink sleeves, flexible packaging, sachets and tags, with a primary focus on the FMCG market.
