Standard Finishing Systems, a supplier of post-press and paper handling solutions, has hired Karl Belafi as territory sales manager for eastern Canada.

Karl has been in the industry for 27 years after starting his career at KBR Graphics, his family’s business. KBR was the oldest independent printing equipment dealer in Canada until it closed its doors in early 2020 after 42 years of operation.

While at KBR, Karl was able to learn the industry from all angles by holding positions including service technician, horizon operator trainer, marketing manager and director of sales & major accounts. Standard’s lines of finishing solutions were the top product lines at KBR for over 32 years.

“I’m ready and excited to hit the ground running at Standard,” said Karl. “Having worked closely with the company before, it has been a pleasure reconnecting with familiar faces. I’m looking forward to representing Standard Horizon and Hunkeler’s lines of automated, innovative print finishing and processing solutions with the market in eastern Canada.”
