Flexographic agency Reproflex3 has appointed Mark Vaus as technical sales director for corrugate, joining from SGK in Manchester.

Mr Vaus has more than three decades of experience incorporating technical engineering, business development and senior management roles within the flexo industry, working with companies such as WR Grace, which later became MacDermid Graphic solutions, and VW Graphics. He will now bring that experience to bear as Reproflex3 seeks to grow its corrugate business within the UK and internationally.

‘We are very pleased to welcome Mark to the R3 family. His experience and knowledge will help to build our corrugate business as well as support and further strengthen the Reproflex3 global partnership network,’ commented Reproflex3 Group CEO, Andrew Hewitson.

Mr Vaus said he was ‘thrilled’ to join the Cramlington, Northumberland-based company, which he added was a ‘true independent business with an excellent reputation in the prepress industry’. He continued, ‘They are clear market leaders in pushing the boundaries of flexographic print, with a programme of continual investment, innovation and R&D. More importantly though, there is a tremendous team spirit within the business with a real passion and energy from within.

‘For the people that know me well, innovation, R&D and delivering ‘true added value’ to clients is what really motivates me.’
