MPS has appointed PT. IDG (Inti Digital Grafika) as its new local agent for the Indonesian market. Owned by Ahmad Sopian and based in Indonesia’s capital of Jakarta, IDG brings active engagement in the narrow web printing industry since 2004 with highly technical service representatives.
The appointment of IDG as local representative in Indonesia is part of MPS’ strategy to expand presence in Asia. Wim van den Bosch, CEO of MPS comments: “After building up a very reputable presence in Western Europe since our founding in 1996, we then expanded globally with an increased focus on North America (MPS Systems North America Inc.) in establishing local sales, installation, service and assembly operations, led by Denny McGee and Kees Nijenhuis. We are now well-positioned to increase our market share in Asia — the appointment of IDG as our agent in Indonesia is an important step in this process.”
With years of expertise in the flexo industry, Ahmad Sopian brings a strong advantage in representing MPS locally and sharing his flexo know-how with customers. He adds: “We have a vast network in the Indonesian label and flexible packaging markets that can benefit from investing in MPS high-quality and innovative presses to boost productivity.” Ahmad Sopian received extensive training at the MPS headquarters in the Netherlands for flexo, offset, and hybrid printing solutions, with additional technical training on-site at MPS planned for IDG’s service engineers.
