Octi-Tech Ltd. has announced the appointment of Gary Walker as Global Business Development Manager for 3D solutions.
Walker comes with 25 years of experience in business development, key account management and international marketing. Walker joins Octi-Tech from sublimation ink specialists Sawgrass Europe where he spent the last 4 years successfully acquiring and managing numerous international accounts. He has an MSc in Marketing from Huddersfield University and BA in Media Communications from Durham University.
Paul Hirst, Director of Marvelpress said “With the impending launch of the new Sublideck 3D range next month, finding the right person to drive the development was critical. With Walker, we believe we have found the ideal match. His wealth of experience and industry knowledge has already made him a key addition to our 3D team.”
Hirst continues “The three dimensional permanent printing around complex shaped products (such as smartphone cases) is currently the hottest decoration technology within the promotional and gifting personalisation market. We see Gary as a key figure to capitalise on this trend and deliver substantial international growth utilising new distribution channels, pricing and technological advances.”
The new range will dramatically increase Sublideck’s 3D hardware options from what is currently the world’s largest selling single print system to include three new high speed production presses, accommodating 4, 10 and even 30 case prints at a time.
In more good news, Octi-Tech will reaffirm its commitment to driving down the costs of consumables and will introduce a new pricing structure along with the expanded hardware range. For the first time, this new matrix will enable Octi-Tech to setup and sell the Sublideck 3D solution to a global dealer network.
Walker comments “I am excited to start a new challenge within Marvelpress and look forward to further develop their outstanding success in 3D decoration. I am happy to be joining such a respected and fast growing company that prides itself on innovative vision and cutting edge technology.
"I would encourage old clients and new to come along to meet me on our stand (7I102) at this year’s Mobile World Congress exhibition in Barcelona from the 25 – 28 February. We will be launching the new range and showing live demos which promise to excite and show the commercial power of the Sublideck 3D solution.”
