Contiweb has appointed Chuck Irons as vice president for the Americas, effective immediately.
Irons’ responsibilities will include overseeing Contiweb’s North and South American operations, including sales, customer support, customer service and parts supply.
Irons brings a wealth of knowledge to his new role, with more than 35 years of experience in the printing industry – approximately 20 of which he worked with Contiweb at the beginning of his graphic arts career. Irons re-joins the company confident that his team will create a successful sales and service network for Contiweb in 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,” Irons says. “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.”
With Irons’ prominent background and extensive knowledge within the printing industry, his addition to Contiweb demonstrates the company’s intention and determination to further strengthen its position as a leading specialist in state-of-the-art technologies for web-handling, printing and advanced drying.
“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,” says Contiweb Managing Director Bert Schoonderbeek. “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.”
