Industry veteran Scott Porter has joined the Presstek team as Sales Manager, DI Systems, to support the company’s ever-expanding sales opportunities in the U.S. Based in Orange County, California, Porter will drive sales activity for the Western region, utilizing the wealth of industry knowledge and experience he’s accumulated throughout his 30-year career. Porter’s most recent positions include Colour Specialist at Kodak, Sales Manager for HP Indigo and Production Specialist and iGen Specialist at Xerox. “I’m delighted to join Presstek,” said Porter. “Their unique high-quality and environmentally-friendly digital offset DI printing technology brings substantial benefits to printers, such as faster turnaround times, shorter press runs at lower costs, and all without sacrificing quality. It’s an exciting and extremely attractive option for printers today and I’m looking forward to driving further adoption of these systems across the Western region.” In addition to the new business opportunities that Porter will oversee as part of his role, he’ll also support Presstek’s existing install base.
“Our customers are already reaping the benefits of highly automated, digital offset presses that feature a compact footprint and produce very high quality results,” he added. “However, I’m also keen to ensure that they take advantage of the ECO-UV enhancement option available for DI presses. This curing system takes the production capabilities of DI presses to the next level. It accelerates production by drying sheets instantly and opens the door to new business opportunities by enabling users to print on an expanded range of substrates, including plastics and vinyl.” ECO-UV is available as a field upgrade to Presstek’s existing customer base or can be purchased with new or certified pre-owned DI presses.
“Scott’s unique blend of workflow and digital printing expertise will greatly enhance our ‘go-to-market’ initiatives and drive our DI press installations,” said Ralph Jenkins, Worldwide Sales and Marketing Director, Presstek. ”We all sincerely welcome Scott to the Presstek team and look forward to our customers and prospects seeing the positive impact I’m sure his appointment will have on the business.”
