In response to sweeping customer demand across all product lines for SCREEN’s high-quality digital production printing systems, SCREEN Americas is pleased to announce the appointment of Paul Chandonnet to the position of regional sales manager for digital inkjet solutions.
As the newest addition to the SCREEN sales team, Chandonnet is responsible for introducing SCREEN’s extensive digital portfolio to existing and potential SCREEN customers and developing long-term relationships. He is based out of Boston. His territory spans the East Coast from Florida to Maine, as well as the eastern third of Canada.
“Paul is a top-performing sales professional who will help us drive sales growth and maintain the consistently high level of service that customers have come to expect from SCREEN Americas,” said Ken Ingram, vice president of sales and marketing. “He has the unique perspective of someone who has been involved in both equipment sales and print sales. He knows what it takes to be a successful printing business and understands the technology on which print providers rely.”
Chandonnet holds a degree in Printing Technology and Applied Computer Science from Rochester Institute of Technology, and has worked in the graphic communications industry for more than 20 years. His most recent post before coming to SCREEN was North American sales manager at Highcon, a manufacturer of converting solutions. Prior to that, he served as director of business development at Anro Inc., a print and marketing service provider in West Chester, Pennsylvania.
“Working in this industry, I have followed SCREEN with great interest for a number of years, especially since the Truepress Jet520 inkjet web press was launched 10 years ago,” Chandonnet said. “SCREEN has a reputation as a precision equipment manufacturer, and SCREEN products are held in high regard. It is a pleasure to join an industry-leading company of SCREEN’s caliber that has reshaped and optimized the way digital print is delivered.”
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.
