Colordyne Technologies has promoted John Urban to the position of product manager for its Production Class machines.
Urban has over 20 years of experience working as a mechanical engineer and over 17 years of experience in the print industry.
In his previous position at Colordyne, Urban played a key role in product and technology development for the 3600 Series aqueous pigment engine. In his new role, he is responsible for product development as well as organic and strategic business growth of 3600 Series technology. Previously, Urban served as Colordyne's mechanical engineer. He was involved in the design and development of the 2800 Series Mini Laser Pro, 3600 Series UV retrofit and worked on various 3600 Series AQ products.
Before joining Colordyne, he was a manufacturing process manager for LS Research and spent 16 years as a senior mechanical engineer at QuadTech.
With his in-depth knowledge of Colordyne’s newest technology, the company said Urban will continue to support development efforts while building a long-term vision and growth strategy for the product line. Additionally, he will manage customer success for Colordyne’s Production Class technology by ensuring production plans, timelines and product capabilities meet client expectations.
Urban said: ‘As product manager for Colordyne's Production Class solutions, one of my priorities is developing strong relationships with suppliers and print providers. Colordyne’s newest technology will open new markets to customers who are looking to integrate an aqueous pigment print engine into their systems, as well as customers who are interested in adding digital print production to their business. The pigment ink works with more substrates than other aqueous inkjet technology and offers enhanced durability to meet a wider range of business and application needs.’
Colordyne is hosting an open house at its headquarters in Brookfield, Wisconsin on March 27 to showcase the new 3600 Series aqueous pigment print engine.
