Contiweb, a specialist in state-of-the-art technologies for printing, advanced drying and web-handling products, has announced the appointment of Chuck Irons as Vice President of The Americas. Irons’ responsibilities will include overseeing Contiweb’s North American and South American operations – including sales, customer support, customer service and parts supplies. He brings a wealth of knowledge to his new role, with over 35 years of experience in the printing industry alone – approximately 20 of which was working with Contiweb at the beginning of his graphic arts career. Irons re-joins the company to lead his team in creating a successful sales and service network for Contiweb throughout the Americas.
“Contiweb is on an exciting new journey and the opportunity to re-join at such a pivotal time in the company’s history was too much to pass up,” he said. “With Contiweb now being an independent company, I believe this is the perfect time to continue strengthening its relationships in the Americas region. With the expert team we have available to assist me here at Contiweb, we aim to expand the support to existing customers and build a solid sales structure which will subsequently lead to the expansion of our installed base with the amazing Contiweb Thallo flexible packaging press.”
Bert Schoonderbeek, Managing Director at Contiweb, added: “Being such a crucial time following the company becoming independent, we felt that Chuck’s significant experience and expertise would allow us to continue our steady growth in the Americas market. With Chuck’s long-standing relationship with the company and knowledge of the market, the decision to bring him back on board was an easy one.”
