It’s all in the name

Our name says it all – My Press Needs are your press needs. We believe a clamshell company should provide more than just a product. That’s why, in 2000, we formed MPN to respond to your needs. Since then, we’ve been partnering with our customers, offering honest advice and assistance before your buying decision, and technical resources after the installation. And of course, our high-quality platen die cutters.

Our experience dates back to 1986, when the Weidhaas family manufactured their first clamshell, the IT&M, in the U.S. In 1996, IT&M merged with Preco and the Weidhaases engineered the Preco M3043. When Preco changed its focus, the family formed MPN to focus solely on the clamshell.

Integrity and Innovation

Our unwavering commitment to our customers and the Crest Platen Clamshell is the driving force behind MPN’s continuing quest for the best engineering and technology. Today’s Crest represents 30 years of dedicated clamshell engineering, resulting in the flattest platen, the tonnage to cut difficult substrates and many advanced features.

The Crest’s reliability and integrity are well-known among its owners. And so is the integrity of our company. Our straightforward, honest business practices are the foundation of our products and services. Guaranteed.
