Trelleborg Printing Blankets has clarified the role of certain key management within the company following its recent acquisition of MacDermid Printing Blankets. George Christian who had been commercial director of MacDermid Printing Blankets in the USA is now director of sales and marketing for the Americas and Canada for both the MacDermid and Vulcan printing blanket brands.

Emanuele Taccon continues with overall responsibility for Vulcan sales in Europe and Asia. He is based in Italy. Stephane Starck will continue with overall responsibility for sales in Europe of the MacDermid blanket range. He is based in France.

‘Most of the MacDermid distributors in the USA and Canada also sell Vulcan blankets and so it made sense to put one experienced person in overall charge for these territories ’ said Dario Porta president of Trelleborg Printing Blankets. ‘The situation in Europe is not the same so it was more logical to have two people in charge of these separate and well established sales channels. Both Emanuele and Stephane have first class track records in running these respective operations and we re looking forward to an excellent 2008 following our very successful Drupa.’
