MPS Systems Asia has opened a new branch office in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia, in a bid to serve customers in the region.
Tim Klappe, recently appointed as managing director Asia Pacific will lead operations of the new branch. Joining Klappe in the new branch office is George Tan, MPS Area Sales Manager.
Klappe said: “With its central location in the South-Asian region, Kuala Lumpur is an ideal location for a dedicated MPS office,”
Recently appointed MPS representatives in Asia Pacific include Intercom Trade Services (a K-Group company) in Pakistan and PT. IDG in Indonesia, who since finalized its first MPS EF press sale to PT. Surya Baru.
MPS also has long-term partnerships with Genius Flexo Machinery in India and Bangladesh, Maxteq in Australia, and Nekkorb in New Zealand.
Another part of the expansion plan in Asia includes expanding the new MPS Asia office with a demo center where printers can view press demonstrations and test a variety of applications.
T&K Toka, the local MPS agent in Japan for many years, offers a dedicated demo center at their Saitama facility with a fully equipped MPS EF multi-substrate press that is available for personal demonstrations.
MPS CEO Wim van den Bosch said: “The opening of our local Asia branch is an important milestone in our overall growth strategy. The Asian market offers significant growth potential for MPS, and with increased local presence and new development initiatives led by Tim Klappe and George Tan, we are well on our way.”
MPS is a worldwide, well-known and high-quality brand of flexo and offset press solutions for label and flexible packaging printers.
