Spanish companies invest in new MPS presses for high quality labels

After the recent MPS press installation at Bacigalupe, two more label printers and converters have decided for an MPS Press; Gráficas Varias and Relieves Egara.

Recently the company Gráficas Varias purchased a new MPS printing press. The company was founded by Mr. Varias Bou in 1918 in Sant Sadurni d´Anoia, heart of the CAVA region in Spain. Gráficas Varias at present is a very well-known company specialized in the sector CAVA and wines, and also self adhesive labels such as Cola. From the beginning Gráficas Varias has gone through a steady development by providing quality and new technological methods. The company is formed by a team of 85 professionals in graphic arts. The team, together with the printing press latest technology and modern production facilities, allow a comprehensive response capability for all customers by offering optimal product quality. VARIAS has recently purchased a MPS press to complete their range of machinery.

Mr J. Varias, General Manager and grandchild of founder Gráficas Varias comments: “We are constantly testing many machine types and observing technologies world wide. It was obvious, after our recent series of testing that the MPS print quality is very good and it is very easy to achieve, furthermore it has an unbelievable high productivity. During the tests at MPS, we were using several materials including mono films. The change over times and material waste were beyond our expectations !”


Relieves Egara, founded in 1947 and specialized mainly in cosmetics and pharma self-adhesives labels, purchased a MPS printing press. Their watchword is high presentation labels; use the principle that better defines each of your jobs, as the label is a value added product nowadays. With over 60 years manufacturing experience in self adhesive labels, Egara has become highly specialized and has created a large production capacity. Its premise is the satisfaction of its customers, therefore they invest a good part of the benefits into the latest generation machinery company. Recently Relieves Egara has purchased a MPS press. In this way they will be able to reach a market with up to 8 screen printing in the same label.

Mr Garmundi. General Director Relieves Egara comments: “We have decided for MPS, because we need the highest flexo print quality possible. Next to that we use very much combination printing with rotary screen. It is known that a MPS press delivers our required outstanding quality as well as productivity, whilst using combination printing flexo-screen.”


Bacigalupe is a family business founded in 1970 and is permanently expanding by committing new technologies to be able to be at the forefront of the graphic printing industry. With a production of over two million labels per day, Bacigalupe is one of the leading companies in Spain since the Pradoluengo factory. Bacigalupe’s key weapon: the quality. Bacigalupe works for many multinational companies and are specialized in wine and liquors labels. Bacigalupe has decided to purchase a MPS flexo press especially because of the Crisp.Dot technology.

Mr Bacigalupe, Managing Director comments: ”For a time we were interested in MPS in its developments. We have tested the MPS technology for the first time 5 years ago. We are happy and proud to have installed the first MPS press. The machine will be focussed on very high quality labels including embossing and hot foil specialities.”
