Hexxa Flexible Packaging Installs First MPS Flexo Press in UAE

UAE-based Hexxa Flexible Packaging has purchased and installed its first MPS flexo press to strengthen its business.

The printing company has installed a 10-colour, 430mm EF multi-substrate press. It features the advanced Automated Print Control (APC) package for full automation, UV dryers and four hot air units.

Hexxa is engaged in printing and converting of flexible packaging, mainly using rotogravure printing technology.

It offers PVC and PET shrink sleeves, OPP labels, solventless laminates up to 3 layers, and a range of film required for the food, beverage and cosmetic industry.

Hexxa Flexible Packaging managing director and owner Raja Gandhi said: “We needed a narrow web flexo press to offer more competitive prices on shorter print runs.

“MPS offered the highest European quality machine, proven in an impressive demonstration at their headquarters in the Netherlands.”

MPS said that the new flexo press will allow Hexxa to achieve higher productivity in shorter print runs.

MPS area sales manager Matthijs Stevens said: “This sale is an exciting milestone for MPS, with entry into a new Middle East market.

“With Anoop as our local agent, MPS offers this emerging region a well-connected and extensive local service network. This is just the beginning of more growth for MPS in the Middle East.”

The purchase also included a full-service interactive training program for Hexxa’s press operators.

Hexxa serves customers including brands such as PepsiCo, Danone Morocco, Nestlé, Kraft, Heinz Africa & Middle East and Coca Cola Kuwait.
