Briggs, previously the managing director of Mark Andy UK, and subsequently sales director of Mark Andy Europe, more recently worked for Xeikon. He then decided now was the time to create his own agency – Web Converting Solutions – and join the Omet team as local agent for the UK and Ireland.
“It is a matter of great satisfaction for both of us," says Sergio Villa, Omet area sales manager. "Paul brings with him a depth of experience in labels and packaging for both traditional and digital printing, which is invaluable for Omet, given the recent launch of the XJet line in collaboration with Durst."
In the UK, Omet is strengthening both the sales network and customer after-sales service. “With Web Converting Solutions, we are going to offer our customers fast response on-site technical service, spare parts delivered from within the UK by Omet, certified and trained technicians and support staff,” says Villa. “It is important to be able to offer preventative maintenance and service contracts to ensure the very best performance and minimal downtime of the installed equipment.”
Omet has about 10 installations of label printing machines in the UK. "They are important machines acquired by major customers, many of whom have installed more than one Omet line. We are preparing for a qualitative leap with an excellent base of installations," he adds.
