EskoArtwork Strengthens Turkish Presence

Expansion Focuses on Local Distributor Support

Gent (Belgium), (PresseBox) - EskoArtwork's dedication to delivering optimum service to the packaging and printing industry around the globe is behind its decision to underpin its MEA presence and open a Turkish office in Istanbul. The new venture is being headed up by Mustafa Salur, who joined the company in September as Sales Manager Turkey. He will also provide additional support to the local distribution channels in Turkey.

Recently appointed Regional Business Manager MEA Jacques Staelens, comments: "EskoArtwork is enjoying an exciting period of growth and this move demonstrates our commitment to long-term co-operation with local distributors in Turkey. It illustrates, too, how determined we are to provide the most responsive and comprehensive support for the increasing number of operations choosing to use our solutions to help safeguard their business future."

Prior to joining EskoArtwork, Salur was Prepress Product & Sales Account manager for Heidelberg Turkey, and before that Regional Sales Manager for DuPont and Agfa dealer Matset A.S.

Salur, who graduated from B.S. Electrical & Electronics Engineering at the Hacettepe University in Ankara, has also held various roles in the Telecom sector.

Staelens adds: "With his wealth of market and industry knowledge Mustafa is perfectly placed to provide a solid foundation enabling us to better serve existing clients while discussing the numerous ways we can help new customer maximize their potential.

"There is as lot of scope for growth in the Turkish market and we want to fully realise this by having a local presence through someone who natively speaks the language and fully understands the business culture. We already have a good network in the MEA and this is the final piece in the jigsaw to creating a comprehensive presence for our growing client base."
