Simon Cosh has been appointed UK and Ireland label business development manager at Durst.

Mr Cosh is an inkjet specialist with more than 30 years of experience in the print and graphic communications industry. He brings wide-ranging experience across flexo, litho, digital and letterpress printing technologies to the role. He joins Durst from Dantex.

Effective today (1 September, 2021), he will be working closely with the local sales, service, supply and logistics teams as well as Durst Group headquarters staff based in Brixen, Italy. His responsibility covers the Durst RSC Tau UV inkjet single-pass press portfolio, as well Durst Workflow Label software and other integration packages.

Peter Bray, managing director at Durst UK and Ireland, said, ‘Simon joins the Durst family at an important time as we continue to push forward our market-leading RSC Tau systems, service and software. His expertise in the inkjet sector will be a valuable asset as we continue to lead innovation within labels, a market we joined little more than 10 years ago but have now firmly established our presence. All our customers can count on Durst’s continuous development of RSC technology.’

Mr Cosh said, ‘My background in flexo and other processes has given me a greater understanding of how they all link in, and particularly the huge advantages that digital can bring as markets continue to evolve. I am massively excited and really looking forward to the challenge. Not only is Durst recognised right across the market as an innovator and market leader, it is a company that is extremely well respected within the industry and constantly pushing the boundaries in terms of solutions. The new features and products in the RSC Tau range will further enhance its reputation.’
