KOLDING, Denmark—TRESU Group, global supplier of flexographic printing and converting machinery and equipment, announces the appointment of Thomas Ellegaard Mohr as vice president of TRESU Solutions.
An engineer, Mohr joins TRESU after a 10-year career in the Danish Navy and 10 years in industry. Previously, Mohr worked for Tetra Pak Hoyer as an installation and commissioning engineer before becoming a technical sales engineer, representing the entire portfolio.
“The experience at Tetra Pak included consultancy, assessment of customers’ needs and the development of appropriate aftermarket support,” Mohr said. “Related to TRESU was my work with ice cream packaging materials, including foils and cartons, which helped me to understand converting from the customer’s viewpoint.”
Most recently, Mohr worked for global industrial processing concern Andritz as a global sales and application manager, then moving to become European sales director for aftermarket and capital equipment.
“While there will be much that is new in the job at TRESU, there are also many overlaps with my previous experience,” Mohr explained. “It will be exciting to manage a team that comprises so much experience and expertise.
“I am excited by this opportunity because it builds on my experience and will take me deeper into an industry that I began to know at Tetra Pak,” he continued. “TRESU is unique in the industry because it is really a one-stop-shop offering broad capabilities. It doesn’t just sell equipment but works with its customers to optimize the operation of their whole factory. It also has a well-known reputation for aftermarket service and support.”
The flagship of TRESU Solutions is the Flexo Innovator press that offers print quality and speed with a high level of versatility. A complete inline solution for paperboard applications including folding cartons, the Flexo Innovator has gained a worldwide reputation for performance and reliability.
TRESU Solutions also supplies coating units for folding carton, pouches and sanitary product applications. Also within the division’s offering are coating solutions for inline or near-line configuration with HP, Xerox and Océ Canon digital presses. The coaters apply water-based UV coatings or special varnishes—on one or both surfaces—for digitally printed folding carton applications. For use with the digital coaters, TRESU Solutions also supplies the iCut 3000 for imaging flexo plates for coating applications.
On his ambitions for the new position, Mohr commented: “I believe that all the right competences already exist at TRESU. What I would like to do is make it easier for customers to work with us; to streamline our internal processes, and to focus outwards, toward what we can do for our customers.”
