Global Garage, the leading online marketplace for buying and selling used wide and grand format printing equipment, has hired Kevin Giefer as its new Parts and Printhead Technician.
“Since the launch of our Parts Depot online store, we’ve seen an increased demand in repeat and international business, especially when it comes to printhead cleaning services,” according to Mike Altreuter, president of Global Garage. “We’ve set the industry standard in printhead cleaning with guaranteed performance and the highest quality attention to detail in every phase of the process. This in turn has resulted in the growth of our business and the need to bring on more support. With his background, Kevin is a perfect fit for the type of customer follow through and problem solving capabilities needed,” he said.
Geifer’s previous experience combines strong sales and customer relations with the technical expertise and precision required for the job. He has performed system diagnostics, installed pneumatic and electronic industrial control devices, established system guiding operations, and created and maintained inventories. In his new position he will be responsible for providing technical assistance in cleaning, refurbishing, testing, assembling and restoring printheads and other parts for grand format printers as well as overseeing and managing inventory storage, labeling and shipping.
In addition to superior printhead cleaning services, Parts Depot offers new, third party, used and re-conditioned parts nationally and internationally at as much as 30%-70% off new parts. With site visits from 130 countries worldwide, approximately 40% of Global Garage’s business is international. Parts and services are currently available for EFI-VUTEk, Agfa, HP-Scitex, and Zünd and can be searched in a user-friendly format, offering the convenience of shopping a live inventory of parts and services at any time of the day or night.
