Zünd Plotting Systems (UK) has officially changed its name to Zünd UK, after the business was acquired by Zund Systemtechnik AG earlier this year.

Cole took over as managing director around six months ago

In May, Zünd Plotting Systems, which sells and distributes Zünd kit to the UK market, was acquired by the Switzerland-headquartered manufacturer of digital finishing equipment, and it officially became a subsidiary, having been founded as a private UK reseller by Tim Taylor in 1993. Taylor is now commercial director and former Hybrid national sales manager Stuart Cole has been at the helm of the business since mid-March.

Since the acquisition, Zünd UK has taken on a number of new staff, including three new sales account managers, James Newnham, Paul Whitford and Steve Rowbotham, and a new sales technician, Thomas Scott.

Zünd has also added a number of Fespa-launched modules to its St Albans, Hertfordshire showroom, including a new laser module for its G3 series, the LM 100W, intended for the cutting and sealing of polyester fabrics up to 2mm, and a new camera, which simultaneously scans all registration marks. Both modules are now available. 

Cole said that becoming a subsidiary of Zünd Systemtechnik had allowed the reseller to make “big changes”.

"Our demo centre is getting a revamp with our very latest innovations that make digital cutting processes even faster, more automated and more efficient, while our customers will see new faces in our sales team,” he said.

"We're looking forward to meeting new and existing Zünd users both at our demonstration centre in St Albans and at forthcoming trade shows – with plenty more events planned for 2018."

Zünd will be exhibiting at the upcoming Packaging Innovations London expo and at Advanced Engineering in Birmingham in November, and it plans to hold a number of open houses next year.
