Sean Springett, a veteran of offset press technologies, becomes Canadian Sales Manager for manroland Canada Inc. He rejoins manroland after a four-year hiatus, in which he founded and operated his own carbon-fiber business.
“Having successfully operated his own enterprise, Sean brings an entrepreneurial perspective, a thorough understanding of capital equipment sales and industrial plant operation to every customer interaction,” said Michael Mugavero, Managing Director of manroland Inc., who oversees the press maker’s North American operations.
Gina Gigliozzi, manroland Canada’s Manager of Sales Administration, stated, “Albeit Sean has been away from manroland for a few years, he has maintained many solid relationships throughout the Canadian printing industry. In our view, Sean is uniquely qualified to engage the Canadian market in a consultative sales approach.”
“I look forward to the opportunity manroland Sheetfed has afforded me to reintroduce myself to the Canadian printing industry and help manroland customers achieve distinction amongst their competitors and prosper in a tough economic climate,” said Springett.
manroland sheetfed GmbH, established by British industrialist Tony Langley and Langley Holdings plc. in February 2012, with the acquisition of the sheetfed division from insolvent manroland AG, employs around 1,000 people at its headquarters in Offenbach, Germany, and over 2,000 people worldwide, in over 40 subsidiaries.
