Joseph Falcone has started highlighting value-adding opportunities for print providers in the upper Midwest as SCREEN Americas’ newest Account Manager for Inkjet Digital Solutions. Falcone, an experienced professional with a long and successful career, joins SCREEN’s digital printing solutions team at a critical time when the company is expanding its support to the high-end imaging market.
“We are extremely pleased to have Joe Falcone in our sales organization,” said Ken Ingram, vice president of sales and marketing. “He is well-known and respected and an expert on the digital component of the printing industry. I am confident that he will prove to be a valuable asset for our company.”
Falcone brings a wealth of knowledge to his new post, having demonstrated drive and proven ability at Eastman Kodak. He spent 13 years helping to develop and grow Eastman Kodak’s Midwestern client base for digital printing solutions, most recently as a solution sales manager for electrophotographic printing solutions. He has worked in sales-related positions at other companies in the graphic communications industry and earlier in his career served as president of a prepress service bureau that employed SCREEN technology.
“I truly believe that innovation is key in the capital equipment side of the commercial printing world, and inkjet is the future of printing,” Falcone said. “SCREEN holds a lot of market share in the inkjet arena in commercial printing. There are great opportunities for printing companies to differentiate themselves using SCREEN’s world-class inkjet solutions. I am excited to be working with the company to build long-term relationships.”
A traditional offset printer with a primary focus on folding cartons, Pacer Print and Packaging of Chatsworth, California, shifted 80 percent of its label business in-house with the new inkjet press.
FastCap, LLC, a lean manufacturer of unique household products located in Ferndale, Washington, installed the press in June 2020 and has since increased its productivity by 500 percent.
