Austrian-based MM Packaging has purchased a new 8-colour FA-17 multi-substrate flexo press for their site in Dublin, Ireland. The new press is the first Nilpeter at the Dublin site.
MM Packaging is a global manufacturer of primary and secondary packaging material for several different sectors. The new press was primarily configured for the pharmaceutical industry. The investment in the new press with a full automation package is the result of a fruitful, very positive dialogue and process with Nilpeter.
“Of course, we knew Nilpeter before entering the process of investing in a new press for our Dublin location. However, we were very positively surprised by the professionalism, we have seen all the way from the initial inquiry to the Factory Acceptance Test (FAT). Nilpeter has been very open-minded and listened to our needs all the way, and we are very pleased with the end result. The machine is pure quality, solid built, and it will have a huge positive impact on our business. We can’t wait to get it installed”, says Operation Manager, Warren Brennan from MM Packaging.
The standards and requirements of the labels and documentation are constantly increasing in all markets, and the pharmaceutical industry is no exception.
Nick Hughes, Managing Director at Nilpeter Ltd., UK, says,
“We talk to our customers everyday across business and industries, and we see it everywhere; the need for more and more advanced machines is increasing. Customers want more complex labels and applications. It is our job to help our customers find the right solutions, and I believe we have managed to do so in the case of MM Packaging. They are getting a really fantastic press that will fit well into their setup in Dublin. It will be great to see it running production soon”.
