Punch Graphix Announce Sales Agent for Xeikon in Ireland

Punch Graphix UK Ltd has announced the appointment of Digital Print Business, headed by Paul Hopkins, as the sales agent for Xeikon digital colour presses covering the whole of Ireland.

Xeikon provides one of the leading brands of professional digital printing equipment in the world, with systems tailored for general commercial, transactional/transpromo, and digital label production. Commercial presses are equipped to print full A2 format images, and able to produce full colour printing on both sides of the sheet as a standard feature.

Commenting on his appointment, Paul Hopkins said: “Whilst there are Xeikon presses in Ireland, we believe that there is a significant potential for these products in the current market. Digital is the only technology for printers to invest in right now. We believe that it is particularly suited to the Irish market because of the run lengths involved, and the ability of digital to provide a high degree of personalisation to a printed product.

“We are certainly looking forward to the IPEX printing exhibition taking place in Birmingham in May, as this will provide us with an excellent opportunity to personally introduce visiting Irish printers to Xeikon technology and the very latest products being announced at the show.”

Paul is well known to the Irish print community having spent some 17 years with the James McNaughton Paper Group, much of that time his appointment was as Digital Substrate Manager. In early 2008 he created his own digital print services company ‘digitalprintbusiness.ie’ with interests right across the digital print environment from technology to MIS software and of course paper. “My career path has led me along the digital route, and I therefore have a full and detailed understanding of the technologies involved in that sector of the market. My career to date has allowed me to meet up with many of the important digital players in Ireland and understand their businesses. Therefore I am in an ideal position to be able to help them with their next equipment investment.” Paul will be based just outside of Dublin allowing him to easily move throughout the island of Ireland north and south.
