Paramount Labels & Tags Ltd., based in Cannock, Staffordshire, UK, purchased and installed their first MPS flexo press. The UK-based label printing manufacturer plans to invest in two more MPS presses in 2020.
Purchased was an 8 colour MPS EB 370 flexo press. Phil Wright, Managing Director of Paramount Labels & Tags said: “we had three 6 colour flexo presses along with a digital inkjet press and various finishing equipment, but we needed to upgrade one of the presses. We started to look at various 8 colour flexo presses, this would help us push our sales team into different markets and also enable us to produce a higher quality print than the existing presses, and also at a much higher speed. This then would enable us to provide a better cost for our customers, by allowing us to put more work through this new press.”
Build quality and reliability
Paramount Labels then looked at all the major machine manufacturers that would suit their needs, Wright continues. “Our floor space is limited, which led to a choice of 3 manufacturers. We chose MPS because of the presence and reputation that they have in the marketplace in regard to build quality and reliability. We also had very positive recommendations from other label manufacturers that had chosen MPS which also helped when making our final decision. We looked at the ease of operation and set-up times along with press run speeds and were very impressed by the performance of the press. MPS were very helpful in identifying ancillary equipment that we would need and were a constant source of information when we needed any help during the project. When we first embarked on this project, we set a budget that we really didn’t want to go beyond, MPS were instrumental in making sure that the project respected this and did all they could to ensure that we got the best possible deal throughout the entire process.”
Delivery and installation like clockwork
Nick Tyrer, Sales Director of MPS Systems UK Ltd. comments: “We are of course delighted that Paramount Labels made MPS their chosen supplier. It’s always great to be able to supply a press to a growing company such as Paramount Labels, in a small way you want to be part of the reason that they reach their goals and achieve the success they deserve. It’s been a real pleasure and a privilege to get to know Phil and the team at Paramount, we sincerely hope that they continue their success story and grow as they intend.”
Phil Wright concludes: “The delivery and installation went like clockwork and ahead of time. Within 5 days, we were completely up and running! We do plan to change the other two presses early next year as part of our £2 million investment plan and would install another MPS press.”
