Koenig & Bauer UK has confirmed the appointment of a new UK Post-Press Sales Manager. In the role, Sam Ward (pictured below) becomes responsible for sales of all Koenig & Bauer folder gluing and die-cutting solutions for print and packaging production in the UK.

Ward has extensive experience of understanding requirements as both supplier and user of equipment for the post-press market. Formerly with Arden Dies and, before that, a Customer Success advisor for Highcon, he has also worked more than 12 years as a post-press machine operator in both conventional and digital packaging production.

The appointment is well-timed ahead of drupa, where Koenig & Bauer will be hosting a number of guests from the UK with particular interest in the post-press exhibits, the CutPRO X 106, CutPRO Q 106 and the Omega Alius 90.

Chris Scully, Managing Director,Koenig & Bauer UK, says, “Sam’s experience, going right back to his time in production at Smurfit Kappa and Linney, means that he really has a personal connection to the people who can benefit from our finishing solutions. He has great insight into the issues they deal with and where the pinch points can occur. At Koenig & Bauer we pride ourselves on being able to embed ourselves into the production scenario at each customer and think creatively to find a unique solution. I have every confidence that Sam is exactly the right person for this job.”
