Paul Chant tasked with continued growth and expansion within the UK flexographic market

Tokyo, Japan & Brussels, Belgium 4u– Asahi Photoproducts, a pioneer in flexographic photopolymer plate development, today announced the appointment of Mr. Paul Chant as UK Branch Manager. 

Chant joins the business at a time when Asahi Photoproducts is experiencing growth and expansion within the UK Flexographic market. He brings 28 years of experience from within the industry, having worked in the label, flexible packaging and reprographic sectors at senior manager and director levels. Chant previously worked for Asahi in a technical sales support role and now rejoins the company with responsibility for the entire UK business. 

Chant comments, “I am delighted to be back with the company at such an exciting time. It is clear that recent appointments to the UK-based technical support team have really strengthened the business unit and have played a major role in recent growth and success. The A.Q.U.A. service is a clear differentiator, and combined with market leading products, places Asahi in a very strong position for future success. I am looking forward to further developing our relationships with both new and existing clients.”

The A.Q.U.A. (Asahi Quality Universal Assurance) service was launched in 2014 and is a critical element of Asahi’s market-leading technical support. Asahi’s enthusiastic team of experienced technical support staff works on site in close cooperation with printers, collecting valuable print characteristic data through quality audits ensuring optimum plate performance and stability as well as effective maintenance of equipment. 

“We are delighted to have Paul back in the fold,” says Akiro Kato, Managing Director of Asahi Photoproducts Europe. “He brings with him an exceptional level of industry knowledge and expertise that will serve both us and our clients extremely well. He is a welcome addition to the team.”
