Muller Martini launches VSOP printing press

Friday, July 31, 2009

Press release from the issuing company

Muller Martini (Zofingen, Switzerland) has acquired patents for the VSOP technology from Drent Goebel. A new Muller Martini VSOP series, offering flexible package and cardboard printing, will be launched by the end of 2009.

Emerging Stronger From the Crisis

Muller Martini CEO Bruno Müller sees the acquisition of the VSOP patents and the launch of the VSOP (Variable Sleeve Offset Press) printing press as an important step toward strengthening Muller Martini’s position as a leader in printing press innovation and productivity.

“We are investing in solutions that will provide our customers with new business opportunities in flexible and cardboard-box packaging,” he said. “VSOP technology is designed to guarantee their success in a market with growth potential and will give us a leading role in package printing. Our customers require technology that is relevant to both current and future marketplace realities. Muller Martini will make sure that need is fulfilled.”

From a Single Source

By combining the new VSOP series with its existing Alprinta and Concepta product lines, Muller Martini will provide printers with a comprehensive array of solutions. Complimentary consulting services will be provided to give printers individual advice on expanding into the manufacture of packaging and other commercial printing opportunities.

Yves Rogivue, member of the executive board at Muller Martini, and head of the printingpress division, commented on the next step: “The current situation at Drent Goebel hinders an easy transfer of know how and the access to spare parts. We will do our utmost to build up service and spare part expertise in our global sales and service network, latest by the end of the year. Our goal is to deliver the highest levels of uptime for the printing presses installed, both now and in the future.”

In the meantime, customers can contact Muller Martini's global sales and service network at +49 7622 398 398 or by emailing info.vsop@de.mullermartini.com. One of the company’s press consultants will answer any questions relating to the new product line.
