INX International Ink hires Paul Edwards as the new vice-president of its digital division. He reports to president and CEO Bryce Kristo.
Edwards joins INX after serving as the vice-president of ink technology at EFI since 2011. He directed a team of more than 60 chemists while leading the product development effort and maximized innovation for several business units, including display graphics, ceramics, textile, corrugated, wood and labels. He also managed the print-head technology and analysis group.
He was promoted to that position after serving as the senior director of ink research and development for nearly three years. Edwards was at the company for 19 years after beginning as the director of development at Jetrion in 2004. He began his career in the U.K. as a project manager and worked in technical positions at Domino Printing and Flint.
“We are very excited to have Paul Edwards join the INX International Ink team,” said Kristo. “He brings with him over 30 years of leadership and technological experience within the analog and digital imaging field, both from a fluids and printing system perspective. We are focused on digital printing as a primary growth platform. His extensive experience in executing strategy within this market space will greatly help us drive this growth effort successfully in the future.”
“The Sakata INX Group has a long and successful history of providing quality inks and technology. I am excited to be part of the INX family and be able to create differentiated and high performing digital products for our customers,” said Edwards. “For much of my career, I have been involved with driving the analog to digital revolution in print, and in the development and commercialization of digital inks, coatings, and printing systems. Over the last few years, INX has embarked on a digital journey for their customers, and I know my skills and experience can help accelerate the progress made by the team.”
