Flexo press manufacturer MPS Systems has announced the appointment of Nick Tyrer as the new managing director of its UK operation, replacing the recently-retired Graham Carlon, and says further new UK appointments will soon be made.

In addition, the firm revealed that MPS Systems B.V. – the Arnhem-based Dutch parent – has become a shareholder in MPS Systems (UK) Ltd, a move that it said will result in more efficient parts and technical service support experience for customers.

‘This acquisition will enable us to provide even better service and support to our customers in the UK,’ said Mr Tyrer, ‘streamlining our operations and ensuring that we can offer the best possible solutions to meet their needs.’

All invoicing (in Sterling) and shipping of spare parts for UK customers will now be managed from The Netherlands, although MPS UK will hold stocks of frontline spares and consumables for express deliveries.

Mr Tyrer added, ‘We understand the importance of timely and efficient service and support, especially in the fast-paced printing industry. Our goal is to make the transition as seamless as possible for our customers.’
