Durst is expanding its business portfolio by taking on the labels market previously run from the division’s headquarters in Brixen, Italy.
The Durst UK headquarters are in Leatherhead, Surrey, and its staff covering the UK and Ireland will now also have responsibility for labels and specialty packaging. They are backed by Durst UK’s own nine-strong team of service engineers strategically placed across the UK and Ireland. They are equipped for 24-7 operations right throughout the year and work closely with the parent company’s own support teams.
Peter Bray, Durst UK MD said, ‘We are expecting continued growth in all our market sectors in 2016, especially in labels, which we see as an extremely important sector for our market-leading systems. We expect to make further important announcements soon.’
Mike Englander, Durst business development manager, has responsibility for commercial and business development aspects of the label business in the UK. ‘It was a logical move to centralise operations in the UK,’ he said. ‘It’s not only the support, supply and logistics, but also consumables, spare parts and inks that will be supplied directly for the label industry from UK facilities.’
