Cosh 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. The RSC E and RSC are for short and medium runs, and the RSCi for medium and long runs.
Peter Bray, managing director of Durst UK and Ireland, says, “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.”
Simon has wide-ranging experience across flexo, litho, digital, and letter-press printing technologies where he enhanced his knowledge in recent roles at Edale and Dantex before joining Durst.
“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," says Cosh. “I am massively excited and really looking forward to the challenge. Not only is Durst recognized 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.”
Cosh is married with two grown-up children and lives at Sale, near Manchester. Outside of family and work, his interests are sports — particularly rugby and golf — and he has two dogs.
