New name, new technology and new faces

Following its acquisition by Swiss family business Zünd Systemtechnik AG earlier this year, St Albans-based Zünd Plotting Systems (UK) Ltd has confirmed an official name change to Zünd UK Ltd. The new, simpler name reflects a continued progression for the company, a leading manufacturer of digital cutting technology.

New technical innovations will also be on show at Zünd UK Ltd's dedicated demonstration centre following a forthcoming refurbishment. New machines fitted with over-cutter cameras and laser modules – both of which were unveiled at FESPA this year – will be on display for customers seeking in-depth looks at Zünd technology away from busy trade show floors. Zünd UK is also planning to hold a number of open house events next year.

Furthermore, Zünd UK Ltd has announced the appointment of new sales personnel. James Newnham, Paul Whitford and Steve Rowbotham have all been appointed Sales Account Managers, while Thomas Scott is a new Sales Technician.
As part of the changes at Zünd UK, the email addresses for sales and support teams have also been altered to salesuk@zund.com and supportuk@zund.com respectively. The phone and fax numbers remain the same.

"Becoming a subsidiary of Zünd Systemtechnik AG this year has enabled us to make big changes here at Zünd UK Ltd, including streamlining our name," comments Stuart Cole, Managing Director, Zünd UK Ltd.

"Our demo centre is getting a revamp with our latest innovations that make digital cutting processes even faster, more automated and more efficient, while our customers will see new faces in our sales team.

"We're looking forward to meeting new and existing Zünd users both at our demonstration centre in St Albans and at forthcoming trade shows – with plenty more events planned for 2018."
