Tonejet strengthens international sales team with appointment of Marvin Foreman

29 May, 2015Tonejet, the leading manufacturer of advanced electro-static drop-on-demand digital print engines, today announces the appointment of Marvin Foreman as worldwide Sales Manager.

Utilising its unique and groundbreaking digital print technology, Foreman is responsible for Tonejet’s worldwide go-to-market sales strategy. Part of this strategy will include educating the industry as to the business building and profit generating benefits of Tonejet technology. With initial focus on the craft beverage sector and big breweries, Foreman will drive sales of Tonejet’s 2-Piece Can & Tube Digital Decorator, while further developing the company’s worldwide sales and service network. 
 
“I am delighted to join Tonejet. This business is at the very cutting edge of digital print technology, with customers and their requirements at the heart of everything they do,” comments Marvin Foreman.

“Like digital print for the commerical print market, Tonejet technology now allows short to medium run container and can printing – crucially, at high speed and low cost. Due to these production benfits, as well as the unique marketing and sales opportunities enabled by the personalisation and versioning capabilities, the opportunities for can printers, craft brewers and large breweries are significant. I genuinely believe that Tonejet is on the cusp of delivering another digital print revolution.”

Marvin Foreman joins Tonejet from FujiFilm Graphic Systems in the USA, where he was a Technical Sales Manager. During his 10 years with FujiFilm, Marvin was responsible for selling a range of consumable products to Screen, Digital and Flexo businesses. He was also responsible for sales of digital printing equipment to national and international US print houses. Foreman is based at Tonejet’s UK headquarters in Cambridge.

The Tonejet 2-Piece Can & Tube Digital Decorator utilises electrostatic drop-on-demand deposition technology for high speed, high-quality print on virtually any substrate. Offering 600 dpi through four colours, the Tonejet system is built for true industrial use. Utilising nozzle-less print heads for market leading system reliability, the Tonejet 2-Piece Can & Tube Digital Decorator greatly reduces printer downtime and costly head replacement.

Applying a very thin ink layer (<0.5 um) safe for all food packaging applications, it also provides an extremely low cost per print. Enabling between 100-200 cans per minute, the Tonejet technology ensures swift ROI (return-on-investment) and new profit generating applications.

Tonejet product applications include:
- Metal packaging cans, closures and containers
- Cylindrical containers tubes, cartons and aerosols
- Flexible packaging foil, labels, shrink sleeves, flow wrap, pouches
- Paperboard packaging folding carton, carton board, corrugated

Simon Edwards, Vice President of Sales and Marketing, Tonejet comments, “Having spent the last 10 years perfecting the technology, we are now very pleased to begin shipping the 2-Piece Can & Tube Digital Decorator to an order book of expectant and very excited customers. Marvin’s experience and steady hands will be crucial in meeting our business aspirations and maintaining high customer service. We are pleased to have him on board.”

Marvin will be attending the Smithers PIRA Digital Print for Packaging Conference in Tampa, Florida from the 1-2 June 2015, where Tonejet will be a sponsor, exhibitor and presenter.
