April 4, 2011

Officers of the FTA also spoke at the annual sales meeting of the anilox manufacturer.

An address by Andy Colletta, president of Nilpeter USA, highlighted the annual sales meeting of anilox roll supplier Harper Corporation of America. Nilpeter, one of the industry’s prominent manufacturers of narrow web presses, is one of four equipment manufacturers who are hosting free day-long seminars on this year’s series of Harper Roadshows.

A veteran of the industry, Colletta oversees manufacturing and distribution operations related to the Nilpeter FB Line, including sales/service, marketing, engineering, manufacturing and finance.

The 40 annual meeting attendees also heard from Mark Cisternino and Joe Tuccito of the Flexographic Technical Association (FTA). The pair provided an overview and status report on the fourth edition of FTA’s Flexographic & Image Reproduction Specifications & Tolerances –FIRST – operator certification program.

This year, nearly a dozen Harper employees are participating in FIRST’s intensive half-year program of instruction, leading to their certification as implementation specialists. The program also offers press and prepress certifications for those successfully completing the online instruction and examination regimen.

In addition to participation by its employees, Harper has donated a proofing system and narrow web base anilox rolls for FTA’s online auction to underwrite scholarships for deserving candidates.
