GRIPdigital President Named to Centurfax Board of Directors
Press release from the issuing company
Western Springs, IL, August 2001 — Greg Imhoff, president of GRIPdigital—the exclusive distributor in North and South America for the Centurfax CCDot DotMeter product line—was recently named to the board of directors of Centurfax, a UK-based supplier of quality control equipment to the printing industry. In announcing the appointment, Bob Leslie, managing director of Centurfax, commented: "In today’s worldwide economy, it is important for manufacturers to understand marketplaces around the globe. With the appointment of Greg Imhoff to the Centurfax board of directors, the company will be able to respond more quickly to new developments and market trends in North America."
Discussing the appointment further, Leslie said: "Despite a somewhat depressed printing economy in the UK, Centurfax enjoyed a healthy increase in exports in 2000, including a 25 percent increase in shipments to the North American market. This linking of the Centurfax and GRIPdigital organizations also will permit Centurfax to be more responsive to North American original equipment manufacturers who prefer to deal with a director of their suppliers."
