Apex International has added Pete Schwab and Kevin Glendon to the Apex North America technical sales team.
Because of Apex’s significant growth in 2018, Apex North America is increasing its footprint in the industry by adding more technical personnel. As the global leader in anilox and glue sets, Apex was recently named the preferred vendor for all Westrock Corrugated plants, including former Kapstone, Victory and Box on Demand companies, as well as their narrow web MPS divisions.
Schwab is the technical sales representative for the North Midwest of the United States. With more than two decades of experience with flexographic printing, he is a perfect fit for continuing growth in that region.
Glendon, who has worked in the flexo industry for more than 10 years and has sales experience, is also a new technical sales representative for the Midwest, serving Apex customers in Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan and Ohio.
Schwab and Glendon join another new team member, Gustavo Soto, direct technical sales representative for Mexico. Soto’s addition was announced in October 2018 as he is the first direct representative for Apex in several years. Soto’s role in Mexico is key to supporting current and future Apex customers.
Dave McBeth, vice president of sales for North America, says the addition of these team members, along with Soto, is critical with Apex's growth.
"Apex is committed to servicing and supporting our customers throughout North America,” he said. “The introduction of Kevin, Peter and Gustavo is a clear indication of Apex’s commitment for 2019 focusing on growth of key markets in strategic states in the U.S. and Mexico. 2018 has seen Bellissima DMS open up key markets for Apex in wide web and narrow web, with customers seeing the benefits of Fixed Palette/HD printing in combination with Apex GTT anilox. Apex now are recognized as the premier supplier for corrugated anilox technology, with us recently being awarded the preferred supplier status for all Westrock and affiliated companies for corrugated. Our new team members will be a key component in the growth of 2019."
