Leading web press manufacturer, manroland web systems, has announced the creation of its own subsidiary operation in France. The new sales and service organization, manroland web systems France SAS, will be located in Noisy le Sec, and will be providing newspaper presses and solutions for commercial and digital printing, along with spare parts, technical service and equipment upgrades for existing customers.
“The new subsidiary will work closely with experts from the production site in Augsburg. The main aim is to offer a competitive service to our customers”, explains Joern Gossé, Managing Director at manroland web systems.
Antoine Chevalier (48) has been named as the new Managing Director of the French operation. Antoine studied industrial engineering and began his career in the world of print with Heidelberg in 1989, where he held a variety of positions at the Sales and Product Management Department. He has also been responsible for customer service for the EMEA region at Goss International.
Following his move to manroland web systems, Antoine Chevalier said: “I am looking forward to establishing the market organization in France. I truly feel confident about the fact that our team, in combination with the sales experience of Franck Tavernier and the know-how of the new service technicians for the web offset business, will offer service at the highest quality standards . . . I am looking forward to the challenge of visiting all of our customers and fulfilling their requirements with our local team, along with my own experience of the printing industry.”
Franck Tavernier, Sales Manager at manroland web systems France, added: “To work a challenging and competitive web offset market the quality of service is of particular importance. We have to provide the highest performance to our customers over the entire lifecycle of their press. At manroland web systems we constantly develop our service offerings and product upgrades.
