Prior to working with QUAD’s executive team, John co-founded a Trade Finishing House, Schreiber Specialties, in the early ’90s. He’s always had a passion for Die Cutting, Stamping, and Folding/Gluing. In fact, Schreiber Specialties was a beta site for one of the first Bobst Spantera Die Cutters and housed one of the first North American Expertfold Folder Gluers with Gyro technology. Over the years John made several trips, on a consulting level, to Bobst’s Switzerland R&D facilities to design and develop what is now known as the Bobst Foil Master Hot Foil Stamping machine.
With continual investment in new technology, a knack for doing the “tough jobs”, and year-on-year sales growth, by ’10 QUAD contacted John with an offer to purchase his firm, and join on in an administrative role. A decade later, whether in an office negotiating deals, or down on a shop floor, John’s passion for cartons, die lines, procedures, job make-readies, and “hard iron” burns just as strongly today.
Best Graphics are thrilled to have John, and believe his assets dovetail well with our line of Young Shin Die Cutters-Blankers-Foil Stampers, Laserck Offline Blankers, Busch Pile Turners-High Die Cutters, STOCK Litho Laminators, DGM Folder Gluers-Carton Packers, and our Ecosystem Film Laminators.
In fact, there’s no better person to present you with equipment offerings than someone who previously bought equipment from Best Graphics and our extensive portfolio! A story better than any referral: someone who bought the equipment, ran it themselves, knows its effectiveness, and wants you to know how great it is, too!
. . . Welcome to “this side” of the negotiating table, John! Our team and our clients will KNOW BETTER VALUE! when you’re on the phone, or in their shop.
