manroland Sheetfed Commits to North America
After last week’s announcement about the establishment of a United States sales and service organization called manroland web systems Inc., the new and distinct sheetfed division of manroland released a statement today that it also remains committed to the North American marketplace – both in Canada and the United States.
U.K.-based Langley Holdings, which purchased manroland sheetfed GmbH in February 2012, is expected to name a new CEO for North American in the coming days. Roland Ortbach last week was named CEO for manroland’s web systems operation based in Chicago. When Langley Holdings purchased manroland sheetfed GmbH, the acquisition also included taking over the international marketing organization of manroland AG – currently with a presence in 40 countries.
“We are exceptionally well positioned to do business,“ stated Michael Mugavero, manroland’s Vice President of Sales for North American, speaking about the sheetfed operation’s commitment. “Under our new ownership, manroland’s North American operations can move forward as a more nimble, flatter entity.”
To this end, manroland sheetfed GmbH will be releasing new products at the upcoming drupa 2012 tradeshow in Germany. The company will highlight its ROLAND 700 press with Indexing InlineFoiler, as well as enhancements to make-ready, colour control, inline options and the overall PRINTVALUE umbrella of products.
“We are grateful for the return of support we have received from customers in recent months,“ continued Mugavero. “They are our backbone and our lifeline for the future. Our unrelenting commitment to customers will remain unchanged, as we are in this for the long-haul.”
