MALAYSIA • Carina Shia has been appointed new sales manager for Southeast Asia.
Together with the local KBA-Asia Pacific service team, Carina will support KBA-Flexotecnica with developing their market share in this region. She has worked in the print industry for around 20 years and has collected a wealth of experience in pre-press gravure printing while working for a renowned gravure cylinder manufacturer.
Carina Shia has already sold a second flexo press to Malaysia, this time to Tomypak Flexible Packaging Sdn Bhd, one of the country’s leading converters for flexible packaging. Founded in 1979, the company has over 400 employees and solely operated gravure presses until now. Following an extensive selection process, largely managed by Carina Shia, the company opted for an EVO XD and has subsequently expanded its product portfolio in flexo print. The press is scheduled to be delivered in the third quarter of 2018.
