LECCO, Italy—Roberto Speri, who comes with great experience in the label and packaging industry, has joined the OMET team as label division product manager beginning June 3. The announcement came from Marco Calcagni, OMET sales and marketing director.
Speri, an electrical engineer, started his career as assembler and tester of screen printing machines at Franchini & Speri and got experience in all the label printing sectors: hot foil, roll-to-roll and roll-to-sheet die cutting. A tester for Iwasaki printing and ABG International letterpress machines, and founding partner of DMR Elettromeccanica SrL, from 1997 to 2007 he was the production manager and technical sales manager for Etipol A/S, a leader in the semi-rotary letterpress and waterless offset sector.
In 2017 he joined Nilpeter Italia (also distributor of the ABG International brand since 2015) as head of customer service, and then he took over the management of all aftersales activities. He managed technical assistance, spare parts and service contracts for the approximately 400 plants (Nilpeter and ABG International) in Italy.
“[This was a] choice moved by the desire of new incentives in a growing market and in a sparkling company,” Speri said.
