Swavesey, Cambridgeshire, UK – Industrial Inkjet Ltd (IIJ) has appointed new technical specialists to help support world-class systems for a growing customer base across the world.
Nick Beckett and Matt Barr bring a wealth of additional expertise to IIJ, which last month announced it was taking on a new building to house a dedicated Customer Centre close to its headquarters at Swavesey, near Cambridge.
As Engineering Manager, Nick will assume ownership of the current development programmes that are delivering rapid expansion of IIJ’s products and technology that use Konica Minolta inkjet printheads.
Nick, who has been involved in technical investigations and developments across a range of industries, is a Chartered Mechanical Engineer. He joins from Elektron Technology Plc in Cambridge where he had a similar role. Nick has a master’s degree in Electronic Engineering.
“I’ve joined IIJ because it’s leading from the front and is a pioneer in new ideas and technologies in industrial inkjet,” said Nick. “I’ve joined a great set of people at a go-ahead company bringing innovation across printing technologies, design and software.”
Matthew Barr also has wide experience in technical support and other engineering applications, including consultative and sales positions in a variety of industries. He has a degree in Mechanical Engineering. Matthew’s role is to enhance “deep” technical support to Konica Minolta’s wide OEM customer base.
John Corrall, Managing Director and founder of IIJ, said: “These appointments underpin our focus on the need for rapid progress in inkjet applications, both in our own inkjet products and those of Konica Minolta’s OEM customers.
We believe that that inkjet is right at the ‘hockey stick’ point, that is to say ready for a very rapid up-turn in its acceptance in industrial applications. We are right at the forefront of developments, but we are fully aware that there is no place in this industry for standing still. These are exciting times in the continual growth of inkjet printing.”
