Representing KBA’s corrugated sheetfed flexo products for large-format corrugated board printing and die-cutting, industry veteran Martin Corall has been named Sales Manager for the OEM’s new corrugated products line. Corall began his new position earlier this month and reports to Jeff Dietz, Vice President of Web and Specialty Presses. Corall joins KBA as a seasoned veteran with 28 years of sales experience in the industry working in North America as well as Europe for a variety of leading corrugated press manufacturing companies. In his most recent position with a leading corrugated press manufacturer, he focused on the high-end graphics side of the corrugated board market, managing the very successful introduction of a new machine in the U.S.

“I look forward to representing KBA in the corrugated market,” said Corall. “KBA has a fine reputation as a leading manufacturer and has a depth of resources, including its North American presence with its service team. There is so much growth potential in the corrugated market. My job is to talk to potential customers about their complete process and how they can do more with less by investing in the KBA Corrugated Sheetfed Flexo Press, a high-performance press for large-format corrugated board printing and die-cutting.

“KBA North America was recently named to handle the sales, parts and service for the sheetfed flexo market for corrugated,” said Mark Hischar, President and CEO of KBA North America. “Ever since we built our first KBA Corrugraph Flexo Presses, we’ve had extremely satisfied users. We’ve seen very good prospects after our successful return to this large market with a new generation of corrugated flexo presses. We’re now expanding into this market and have tapped Martin to represent us throughout North America. He has in-depth industry knowledge and is well-connected and well-respected with potential customers – so we’re excited to have him on board to help us develop this important growing market. It unites robust press engineering, cutting-edge electronics and intelligent automation, making it a top-performance production tool. I’ll be highlighting its maximum flexibility, print quality, user-friendliness and ease of maintenance. There’s definitely growth potential for high-end graphic printing on corrugated board, along with more efficiency and productivity.”
