Meyers’ decision to purchase the MPS EF SYMJET, powered by Domino, was driven by the company’s desire to advance its digital offering. “We have great confidence in MPS technology and innovation," says Gregg Temple, president of Meyers Label and Card Groups. “The addition of the hybrid MPS press to our operation has provided the biggest positive impact on our business that we have seen in the last 10 years. Historically, MPS process stability coupled with operator-friendly innovations has had a major impact on our productivity and delivered the lowest defect percentages in the history of the company.”
“Meyers and MPS have been close partners for a number of years,” adds Kees Nijenhuis, vice president of MPS Systems North America. “Our tenure made Meyers a great fit as the launching customer of our EF SYMJET hybrid press in the North American Market. We are very excited to take the next step in our successful partnership.”
MPS expects strong growth in the hybrid market as the need increases to bridge the gap between digital and flexographic printing. The EF SYMJET combines the automated MPS EF platform and the Domino N610i 7-color digital UV inkjet label press, offering the best of both worlds in a truly integrated solution. "The EF SYMJET offers Meyers extreme flexibility and very short turnaround times, which are required in today’s dynamic and competitive market," Temple adds.
In the October 2016 issue of L&NW, Meyers was selected as a "Company to Watch."
