Phil Jager has been appointed to sales manager for North America

According to Edale, the North American market is one of the largest printing markets in the world, which continues to grow steadily. The company has experienced strong and growing interest from the region in its range of presses for cartons, labels, digital web and finishing systems, principally its FL5 Carton Production Line, which has recently seen a significant level of interest and new orders.

Jager's appointment gives existing and potential new customers in North America a dedicated sales expert with a deep routed background and experience within this region.

'I am delighted to represent Edale as its sales manager in North America,' commented Jäger on his appointment. 'I have worked in the print and packaging industry for over 25 years. Most recently, I was with Fujifilm as national packaging manager. I have extensive experience in the folding carton and label industries from both a production machinery and a finished goods perspective. I am equally familiar with the US and Canadian marketplace and am excited about the growth opportunities in those markets. I have known Edale for several years and was drawn to its drive and passion for evolving its technology and providing solutions. It has been surprising and exciting to see its impressive operation at its UK headquarters and see British manufacturing at its best with the vast array of unique standard and customised solutions available.'

Darren Pickford, sales director for Edale, added: 'The appointment of Phil Jager has created an exciting opportunity for us and our customers. His knowledge of the North American market and its needs are a real asset to the team as he has vast experience in converting, flexographic, lithographic and digital printing. Throughout his career, he has successfully developed strong relationships, understood customer needs, and provided solutions. We are confident that Phil will be a fantastic ambassador for the Edale brand and join us in the "revolution of change" we see in the industry, with businesses who are looking at alternative print options and challenging the convention.'
