Zünd UK evolves
Following its acquisition by Swiss family business Zünd Systemtechnik AG earlier this year, St Albans based Zünd Plotting Systems (UK) Ltd has announced an official name change to Zünd UK Ltd. The new, simpler name reflects a continued progression for the company, a leader in digital cutting technology. New technical innovations will also be on show at Zünd UK dedicated demonstration centre following a forthcoming refurbishment. New Zünd machines fitted with over-cutter cameras and laser modules – both of which were unveiled at Fespa this year – will be on display for customers seeking an in-depth look at the company’s technology away from busy trade show floors. Zünd UK is also planning to hold a number of open house events next year, introducing more people to the cutting edge range.
Furthermore, the company has announced the appointment of new sales personnel. James Newnham, Paul Whitford and Steve Rowbotham have all been appointed sales account managers, while Thomas Scott is a new sales technician. As part of the changes at Zünd UK, the e-mail addresses for sales and support teams have also been altered to firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com respectively.
The phone and fax numbers remain the same. ‘Becoming a subsidiary of Zünd Systemtechnik AG this year has enabled us to make big changes here at Zünd UK, including streamlining our name,’ commented Stuart Cole, managing director. ‘Our demo centre is getting a revamp with our very latest innovations that make digital cutting processes even faster, more automated and more efficient, while our customers will see new faces in our sales team. ‘We are looking forward to meeting new and existing Zünd users both at our demonstration centre in St Albans and at forthcoming trade shows – with plenty more events planned for 2018.’ Zünd UK will be exhibiting at Packaging Innovations in London on September 13 and 14 2017 (Stand D2) and at Advanced Engineering in Birmingham on November 1 and 2 2017 (Stand D43).
