Outlook Group in Neenah, Wis., Purchases Second MPS EF Press
Press release date: March 30, 2017
GREEN BAY, WIS. USA - Less than two years after purchasing their first MPS EF flexo press, Outlook Group LLC in Neenah, Wis., has decided to purchase a second MPS press.
Outlook Group is a leading printer of pressure sensitive labels, flexible packaging and folding cartons. In October 2016, Outlook Group announced its merger with M&Q Packaging under M&Q Holdings. The purchase of a second MPS press is part of Outlook’s growth strategy.
Per Kees Nijenhuis, Vice President of MPS Systems North America, Outlook Group purchased a 17-inch, 8-color EF press with automated print pressure settings. “We are very proud to share that our partnership with Outlook has been a real success and that the EF platform has helped Outlook Group to continue their growth. The EF platform has proven to be a very successful platform in the North American market as it is a real future proof press platform, helping our customers to grow in today’s increasingly dynamic and competitive markets.
“We looked at the success of our first machine from the standpoint of production speed, waste reduction and print quality,” said Brett Peters, senior process engineer at Outlook Group. “We tracked press metrics very closely. The opportunity to add a second machine presented itself and we were able to quickly justify this project and move forward.” Furthermore, he states that his team is especially excited about the EF’s ability to print extremely thin films while holding a very tight register, along with its operator interface and ease of use.
