GMG introduces direct business model in UK
GMG products are now only available in the UK direct from GMG UK and a small number of strategic partnerships. GMG UK will provide colour solutions across various prepress and printing processes including digital large-format.
The company has recruited colour management professionals as GMG regional consultants: Toby Burnett, Aaron Broome, Simon Landau and Ian Prosser have extensive industry experience and are now GMG UK's primary sales contacts around the UK.
"In the UK we are convinced that, due to market conditions, our customers will benefit more from a manufacturer-owned channel. A direct route to market will enable us to deepen our relationship with our customers and our industry partners," said Paul Willems, managing director of German-based GMG. "The condition, however, is that we put in place at GMG UK a strong team of professionals 100% focused on delivering a level of support to our customers that they have never enjoyed before."
Ian Scott, managing director of GMG UK, said: "Companies are looking to GMG to provide high levels of quality, ROI, expertise and support. Our new team will be able to offer our customers increased access and knowledge, so they can take full advantage of the increasing GMG range of products."
GMG UK will also be offering products by Epson, X-rite, and a small number of other bespoke colour management products.
