Pre-press packaging specialist Reproflex3 Ltd has appointed Mark Vaus as technical sales director for corrugate.

The Cramlington-based company operates sites in the UK, Dubai, India and New Zealand.

Mr Vaus brings more than three decades of experience in the flexible packaging pre-press industry to Reproflex3 as it seeks to grow its corrugate business within the UK and internationally.

“We are very pleased to welcome Mark to the team. His experience and knowledge of the flexible and corrugated print packaging industries will help to build our corrugate business, as well as support our global partnership network,” commented Reproflex3 Group CEO, Andrew Hewitson.

Mr Vaus started his career as an apprentice electrical engineer in the UK packaging industry. He’s held various technical engineering and business development roles before transitioning to senior management positions within WR Grace, which later became MacDermid Graphic Solutions, VW Graphics and most recently SGK in Manchester.

“I’m thrilled to join Reproflex3, it is a true independent business with an excellent reputation in the pre-press industry. For the people that know me well, innovation, R&D and delivering ‘true added value’ to clients is what really motivates me.

“Reproflex3 is a clear market leader in pushing the boundaries of flexographic print, with a programme of continual investment, innovation and R&D. I’m very much looking forward to supporting the company’s growth ambitions for corrugate inside the global flexo industry.”
