THE NETHERLANDS • MPS confirms the sale of three presses to Asan Pack, the biggest producer of corrugated carton and package printing in Iran. With the addition of two MPS EB 370 and an EF 430 flexo presses to their extensive production facility, Asan Pack is set to enter a new market of label printing.

The two eight-colour EB presses will be used to print labels and their ten-colour EF press will initially print shrink sleeves and wraparound flexible packaging. All presses have delam/relam units and the EF is also equipped with screen and double rewinder units for quick changeovers. All three presses will be installed at Asan Pack in September 2016, and four of their operators have already successfully completed MPS flexo training and received their certificate of completion.

Located in Qazvin, Asan Pack’s current operations are in a 45,000 square metres (484,376 sqft) state-of-the-art factory with over 350 employees, and new facilities planned within the coming year. Producing 80,000 tons of corrugated cartons and 20,000 tons of cardboard packaging with multi-color printing per year, Asan Pack has become a leading package production company in Iran, working with reputable brands such as Nestle, Danone, BAT (KENT), Sony and Samsung, in addition to many other well-known Iranian brands.

With Iran’s population of over 75 million people, Asan Pack has received a considerable demand for label printing over the years and is now entering this niche market, focusing on customers in Iran and neighboring countries.
