MPS Systems North America officially opens new Technology & Expertise Center in PhiladelphiaFebruary 12, 2020
MPS Systems North America Inc. is now officially operational in Philadelphia, PA. The North American subsidiary of the Dutch-based press builder celebrated the move with a packed Grand Opening event.
On January 22 and 23, over 200 visitors attended the Grand Opening of MPS’ new North American Technology & Expertise Center. The two-day event included an official ribbon cutting ceremony, MPS customer testimonials, a tabletop exhibition and live demonstrations featuring connectivity and hybrid printing on the MPS EF SYMJET with an integrated Domino digital inkjet unit.
Harm-Jan de Jong, Vice President of MPS Systems North America Inc. said: “Attendance to our Grand Opening event exceeded all our expectations – we anticipated a full house, but having 200+ visitors walk through our door is more than we dreamed of. We thank everyone who took time to visit our new facility, and also our respected partners who made this possible.”
Tara Halpin from Steinhauser shared her experience in purchasing their new 12 color fully automated 20” EF Flexo press on opening day. Tara Halpin named the MPS press ‘Bobby,’ a tribute to her late father and third-generation owner, Robert ‘Bobby’ Steinhauser.
On day two of the Grand Opening, Tom Staib of DWS Printing Associates, Inc. explained the benefits and advantages he has experienced with hybrid technology from the purchase of an MPS/Domino Printing EF SYMJET hybrid press.
