Xeikon announced its first Technology Centre in Asia Pacific. The offices are based in Malaysia and testify of the strategic focus and continuous growth Xeikon is experiencing in this region.
The official inauguration earlier this week was well attended by Xeikon customers from the label, folding carton and document and commercial markets, and presided over by Cheong Kok Wai, the President of the Selangor and Federal Territory Chinese Printing Presses Association, Dato Koay Hean Beow, President of the Malaysian Printing Association and Wim Maes, CEO of Xeikon.
Maes said, ‘We are seeing unprecedented growth in Asia Pacific. Xeikon is expanding fast in this region and we find it very important to build and foster close bonds with our customers there. The brand new state-of-the-art 450sqm facility will help us achieve these goals as it will be addressing the business and educational demands of our customers for more testing, benchmarking and product demonstrations. It will enable us to fully support the growing needs of the local industry.’
The new Technology Centre features Xeikon’s extensive portfolio of presses and suites for labels and packaging applications as well as for document and commercial printing applications. On display is the Xeikon 3050 digital press, designed specifically for label and packaging converters who need a wider web width for the production of their prime label, folding carton, promotional and transfer applications.
