Emphasis on the New LED UV Ryobi Series 

CLEVE, OH - Chris Manley, President of Graphco, is proud to announce the  recent appointment of Derek Gordon as Midwest Regional Manager to the Greater Chicago print industry market, effective March 3rd.

As the exclusive distributor for Ryobi MHI Offset Presses, Graphco’s entry to this market will be positively influenced by the professionalism and creativity that Derek brings to this newly-created position. “With Derek’s decision to join our team we will begin to grow market share in the Midwest with his seasoned and highly-successful track record in printing equipment sales,” reflects Manley, “Derek has a creative and pro-active approach that has been a success-model in his nearly three decades in the industry.” 

For 14 years, Derek was an integral part of the sales team of Komori of America, where he exceeded yearly expectations and stayed keenly focused on his customer’s needs by presenting thoughtful and critical value propositions. Derek's most recent role with KomoriCare has provided him a broader view of the needs of printers nationally. In addition to Northern Illinois, Derek’s sales territory will include Michigan, North Dakota, South Dakota, Nebraska, Kansas and Western Missouri.

As important, Derek Gordon will also offer valuable and insightful sales support and consultation to our Ryobi Sales team and Dealer Partner colleagues and their customers in Ohio, Kentucky, Indiana, Wisconsin, Eastern Missouri, Iowa and Southern Illinois.

My professional goal is to quickly add my initials to the current base of 90 worldwide Ryobi LED UV installations,” comments Gordon, “these instant curing systems provide unsurpassed print quality, low total cost of ownership and the extreme reliability that Ryobi is known for.”
