Jim has 35 years of selling experience in the industry, having started as an apprentice at MET Graphics back in the late 1980s. He joined Mayday Graphic Products in 1991 and worked there for 26 years before being part of an MBO of the business in 2017. Jim was Managing Director of Mayday Graphics when it was taken over by Ultraflex in 2020.
“The acquisition and merging of the two businesses accelerated our growth, and Ultraflex Europe is now a sizeable business focussing on the speedy supply of stocked high-performance wide format, digital print media to the market. I’ve enjoyed being a part of the consolidation, and I’m looking forward to focussing on driving sales. We now supply several larger direct customers and distributors with a much broader range of products. These include rigid and roll media, like first-class mesh, front-lit, back-lit and block-out outdoor banners, printable textiles, rigid foam PVC board and many speciality materials. We hope in time, our new partnership with Agfa will help our consumable business grow along with sales of equipment. But the 3.2m and 5m roll market accounts for the largest proportion of our sales, and it is where we will continue to specialise,” said Jim Fox
Clint Green, MD of Ultraflex Europe, said of the appointment, “We were delighted that Jim Fox came with the Mayday Graphics business when it was acquired, and he has been instrumental in reassuring customers and bedding in new processes over the past three years. It’s now a logical time to appoint him as Sales Director of the combined business, Ultraflex Europe, and I am delighted he has taken on the challenge and confident he will continue to grow sales.”
