Interpress Printers partners with SCG Packaging and invest in flexo printing.

Interpress Printers is a young company that specializes in the printing of fast-food packaging, with headquarters based in Kuala Lumpur. Interpress Printers has an outstanding reputation amongst its customers. Currently it is experiencing a large growth in its business and as a result production capacity will be expanded to its new premises in Kuala Lumpur.

The company was founded nearly 10 years ago and currently has nearly 200 employees and is now one of the region’s largest suppliers of fast-food packaging. The company produces for customers located in Malaysia and other Asian countries. After several visits to European companies, Interpress Printers decided to invest in an ultramodern flexo printing line from KBA-Flexotecnica, a subsidiary of Koenig & Bauer AG. Managing Director, Ratha Kerisnan says “we are convinced that Koenig & Bauer is the ideal partner to answer our high demands. The outstanding technology of the EVO XD will enable us to define new yardsticks for the packaging sector,”

Today Flexo printing is the fastest growing packaging segment with annual growth rates of 4-5%. CEO of KBA Digital & Web and KBA-Flexotecnica says “this project is solid proof that we have arrived on the Asian market. The next step is now to further strengthen our local presence. Our quality and our local service capabilities as a globally active press manufacturer will benefit not only IPP itself, but also its customers,”.
