M Partners Wide, the South London-based wide format equipment re-seller and distributor, has announced details regarding the recruitment of Bhupinder Bharat to the role of Sales Support Specialist at the company.
Bhupinder – known throughout the industry as Bhups – has a long digital printing pedigree having spent nine years working directly with Xeikon as a support specialist, following similar rolls at MAN Roland and Agfa working with the same equipment. Most recently Bhups has been working with One Vision workflow solutions.
Commenting on the appointment, Murray Lock, Joint Managing Director of M Partners Wide, said: “We are delighted to be able to add Bhups to our team. The inclusion of a support specialist reflects our focus on the large format market: we do not want to be seen as just another box shifter. We see a market that needs more than that. Our customers want to get the very best from the machines that they purchase. Having Bhups on board means that we can help them to integrate machines into their existing workflow to best effect; we can assist them in creating a highly efficient proofing solution; and we can customise software to provide an effective and productive package. This is the type of support that the large format market is crying out for and we believe that M Partners Wide can provide. Our aim is to give our customers the edge in a fiercely competitive market.”
Adding his thoughts regarding his appointment, Bhupinder Bharat said: “I am, of course, delighted to be working with M Partners Wide and am excited by the challenges posed by large format. This is one area of the print market that is still growing, with new companies continuing to enter the sector. Customers, however, are demanding more and more from their investments. My many years of experience in operational support in the digital print market will provide our customers with a level of expertise that they can benefit from, helping them to get the most from their software and hardware combination.”
