Matik, a North American distributor of European print and packaging technologies, has hired Kregg Albrecht as its new Sales Manager, Label Products, where he will represent Matik label products throughout the eastern half of the U.S. and Canada.
The company explains Albrecht has had a very accomplished business career in printing and packaging, with sales, marketing and engineering experience. Most recently, Albrecht comes from Essentra and a 20-year tenure at Nosco, a full-service packaging solutions provider. At Nosco, he held roles of ever-increasing responsibilities, most recently as Vice President, Nosco Solutions Engineering. Albrecht has also held technical management, research engineering, processing engineering and product development roles at Avery Dennison–Fasson North America and Mobil Films–Design Products.
“We are very fortunate to add Kregg Albrecht to our Matik team. He is a passionate, knowledgeable and dedicated member of the print, packaging and converting communities. Kregg has considerable experience collaborating with customers, while building trust with cross-functional teams to create new business opportunities,” Steve Leibin, Matik President, says. “We know our customers will be eager to ask Kregg to build the same excitement for them with new opportunities based on our wide range of print and packaging technologies.”

Albrecht has received a number U.S. patents and industry print awards for the work he has achieved. Matik explains he has been involved with a variety of projects, including security packaging solutions, integrating anti-counterfeiting technologies across label and folding cartons; and launching specialty packaging solutions, including RFID-enabled labels and cartons, booklet labels and low-odour/low-migration packaging.
“I have done a lot of work designing the right press and production workflows – particularly flexo and digital printing and digital finishing – to convert unique materials. Most important, I view new equipment not only as tools to increase efficiencies, but also as ways to create new product areas to substantially expand businesses. I hope to do the same for Matik customers,” Albrecht says.
