Fox has a background in electronics and business, and he has over 30 years of experience in the printing industry.
“I am very delighted to be part of the MPS team, since it is a globally renowned company for its quality and expertise," says Fox. "I will fully commit myself to take MPS Systems North America to the next level, and I look forward to connecting with my international colleagues in Europe and Asia."
Led by Kees Nijenhuis, MPS built a solid local service organization and started a strategic partnership with EMT International for the assembly of EF presses. It enforced the sales force across North America, and at the end of 2017, opened a Demo and Applications Center in Green Bay with a well-visited open house. All these efforts resulted in a significant increase of MPS’ sales in North America, with many converters investing in MPS equipment.
Kees Nijenhuis has successfully completed his expat term and will continue his career in The Netherlands. He is confident to hand over his leadership role to Tim Fox, he says.
