His three decades-long career at Heidelberg began in Germany as a print instructor in their main demonstration center in addition to Heidelberg’s client sites around the globe. In the year 2000 he arrived at Heidelberg USA, starting in the engineering and product support department, then progressing to Sheetfed Product manager and ultimately to the director of the company’s North American Print Media Center. In that role, Moebius was responsible for Heidelberg’s sheetfed, finishing, prepress systems, and Gallus product lines.

Bill Bonallo, IST America president and CEO commented: ‘I have worked with and known Errol for over 20 years and have the utmost respect for his abilities. Errol’s 30 plus years of expertise gleaned from both the OEM press side of the industry as well as the print production and converting side falls directly in line with our belief that there is no substitute for experience. He has vast UV application expertise and is already extremely knowledgeable about IST’s full range of equipment and capabilities. The fact he knows the majority of our sheetfed customers is just an added bonus. Over the past year I have put a great deal of thought into how we can more effectively partner with OEM’s and increase our visibility and presence given how quickly the industry is changing. I’m confident that Errol will be a solid asset for the company and will help us in continuing to maintain, and to grow, our prominent position in the marketplace and am extremely pleased to have him as part of our team.’
