Print Veteran André Klinkow Joins ROTOCONTROL

ROTOCONTROL welcomes print veteran André Klinkow as Western Europe Sales Manager for further increased representation of its range of high-speed label and digital hybrid finishing machines. This marks the third recent addition to ROTOCONTROL’s sales organization, following the announcement of Artur Gondek as Area Sales Manager and Francisco Soto as Director of Sales Latin America (including Florida, USA) & Caribbean.

Klinkow brings 30+ years experience exclusively in offset & digital printing and label finishing, beginning with an apprenticeship program with an offset printer in 1985. He started his career as an offset operator at Druckerei Gronenberg; moved into plant manager roles in digital and offset printing for two other German printers; then expanded into sales management positions with digital press manufactures Kodak and HP Indigo, and recently with OneVision Software and AB Graphic International.

An impressive number of academic qualifications are also held by Klinkow with two degrees specializing in print technologies, an Economics & Business Administration degree which he completed while working full-time, and a Master of Business Administration (MBA) degree. Klinkow is based in Hamburg near ROTOCONTROL’s headquarters, soon to be re-located in Siek.

As ROTOCONTROL’s Western Europe Sales Manager, Klinkow is responsible for direct sales and working with local agents. “With an increasing demand for digitalization in label printing and the associated necessary finishing, I see an incredible growth opportunity for ROTOCONTROL,” said Klinkow. “Over the years, ROTOCONTROL has proven its commitment to developing premium label finishing systems, especially focusing on compatibility with digital label printing presses. Rounded out with its recent addition of the Ecoline range of entry-level label finishing machines, it’s an exciting time to represent ROTOCONTROL and bring my relative experience and expertise to the organization at an international level.”

Marco Aengenvoort, ROTOCONTROL managing director commented: “André’s years of experience in digital printing and label finishing is highly admirable,” said Aengenvoort. “He has built strong connections with narrow web label printers and converters throughout Europe, and his extensive knowledge of this market is of great value to ROTOCONTROL, our partners, and especially our customers.”
