Hexxa specializes in printing and converting of flexible packaging, using mainly rotogravure printing technology. The company believes it will achieve higher productivity in shorter print runs with the new MPS flexo press. Hexxa produces PVC and PET shrink sleeves, OPP labels, solventless laminates up to three layers, and a range of film required for the food, beverage, and cosmetic industry.

Raja Gandhi, managing director and owner of Hexxa Flexible Packaging, says, “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. Throughout the sales consultation, the MPS representatives were very open and honest with us. This is why we chose MPS as our flexo partner.”

Included in the press purchase was a full-service interactive training program for Hexxa’s press operators. New to flexo, the operators were fully trained and operating the new EF multi-substrate press in just days.

MPS area sales manager Matthijs Stevens says, “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.”

On January 24 and 25, 2017 Hexxa Flexible Packaging will publically show the new MPS EF 430 press during an Open House at the Ras Al Khaimah premises. Those interested in attending the Hexxa Open House can register for one of the dates via the MPS website.
