Highcon appoints Vic Stalam president, Highcon Americas

Following a successful launch at Graph Expo at the end of last year, Highcon has appointed Vic Stalam to the position of president, Highcon Americas; he will be leading Highcon's team in Canada, North and South America, and building the American operations.

Stalam has vast industry experience spanning technology, imaging, business information systems and services. He spent many years in management roles of increasing responsibility at Kodak, and X-Rite/Pantone (a Danaher company), among others, leading cross-functional global teams to build new business.

Aviv Ratzman, CEO of Highcon says, “We are delighted to have been able to recruit Vic to join our team and to lead our operations in the Americas. His in-depth understanding of all aspects of printing and packaging technology, particularly in the digital arena, will bolster our commitment to investing in the world's largest market.”

“I am excited to be joining Highcon at this particular stage of the company's growth. The introduction of digital technology into the post-print and packaging market completes the missing link in the digital printing workflow. I believe in Highcon’s vision of transforming ‘finishing’ into a value adding process. The Highcon Euclid digital cutting and creasing machine offers printers and converters an innovative and productive solution to the demands of their clients,” says Stalam.

The award-winning Highcon Euclid is the first fully digital cutting and creasing machine for converting paper, labels, folding carton and microflute. The Euclid incorporates Highcon’s patented ‘DART’ (Digital Adhesive Rule Technology) to produce creases, and high-speed laser optics to cut a wide range of substrates, eliminating the conventional die-making process.
