Mark Andy Adds Infrastructure to Support Digital Growth in North America

To better serve the growing digital label market, Mark Andy has announced the addition of nine individuals to the company over the past six months to support the continued development of its Digital Business Unit in the U.S. and Canada.

With well over 250 digital hybrid placements in the region, significant year-over-year sales increase, and the recent expansion of its digital hybrid portfolio with the introduction of Digital Series iQ to the Digital Series family of products, the company has invested to ensure even more successful results in 2021 and beyond.

Joining the Digital Service team are Mat Nelson, Keith Tweten, and Kurt Albeck. Nelson is a Digital Service Technician primarily responsible for the service and maintenance of the inkjet presses and moved to the Digital Business unit from the Mark Andy Flexographic training group, having extensive experience with Performance Series and 2200 presses. Tweten has completed his training on Digital One and Digital Pro and will be cross-trained on inkjet technology. Albeck joined the inkjet team in November and will work primarily with the installation of new presses. “As we scale the service team, we strengthen our regional coverage, guarantee timely service response, and minimize customer downtime”, says Clark Mansur, Digital Service Director, Mark Andy.

Mansur also highlights the promotion of Rob Balash and Agustin Fernandez. “We are excited to promote Balash from a Preventative Maintenance Technician for flexo to a Field Technician in our Digital Business Unit, as he brings extensive flexo knowledge and experience to our hybrid solutions.” Fernandez has accepted a new position as Digital Parts and Contracts Administrator. In the new role, he will be responsible for all Digital customer billing, inkjet-related digital parts sales, contact placement, renewal, and entitlement, and he will assist with regular financial reviews of the Digital Service department’s operation.

To support the digital prepress operation and new sales installation, Mark Andy onboarded two Digital Workflow Solutions Managers, Terry Milano, and Jack Bazzell, who joined the team to help streamline workflows and produce maximum quality work with optimum efficiency.

Supplementing the sales team are Ted Bright, who rejoined the group in October as a Digital Sales Manager in the Midwest, and Johnny Bass, the new Digital Sales Manager for the Western region.
