Epson Europe has strengthened its OEM print head sales operations across the EMEAR region with the appointment of a new business development manager.
Paddy O’Hara will be responsible for the development of Epson’s recently launched external print head business for OEM customers in Europe, Middle East, Africa and Russia.
Mr O’Hara brings with him over 20 years’ experience in senior technical and commercial development roles having previously worked for Xaar and Industrial inkjet, the sales agents for Konica Minolta print heads.
Epson launched its industrial inkjet print head business in 2019 in response to increasing demand for digital printing in multiple applications. The company now offers an extensive range of high quality competitively priced print heads including a full range of print heads derived from its market leading Precision Core printchip technology, such as the S3200 print head, designed for ease of integration in a line-head array. The PrecisionCore print head technology delivers outstanding image quality, productivity, durability, and print head scalability.
Duncan Ferguson, vice president, commercial and industrial sales for Epson Europe, said: “We are delighted to welcome Paddy O’Hara who brings a wealth of experience in the industrial print head market across EMEAR. His extensive knowledge and technical expertise will help expand demand for Epson’s leading digital print head technology and help forge further relationships with OEM partners across the region.”
Epson seeks to expand the horizons of digital printing, which has a much smaller environmental footprint than conventional printing processes. With the opening of its new print head manufacturing operations in Hirooka, Japan, the company is now accelerating inkjet innovation by growing its finished product business and increasing external print head sales through new strategic partnerships. Epson will continue to invest in its PrecisionCore technology for print heads optimised for commercial and industrial applications and create new markets by embracing open innovation in a diverse and expanding range of printing applications and for emerging areas such as electronics and bio-printing.
