Already well known to the South Australian market, Baker is looking forward to continuing his relationship with local customers that already extends back o twenty plus years. He says, “Curries has an enormous reputation as a supplier of choice, so an opportunity to continue my career with an organisation that is expanding both its product and service levels was something I could not afford to miss.”
Bernie Robinson, sales director of Currie Group welcomed Baker to the company. “Alan has a solid background in CTP, plates, workflow and digital print, and this marries perfectly with our current assortment.”
Baker commenced his industry career in the early eighties with the South Australian Government Printer before moving to the supply side of the industry to join Agfa in the late eighties. At Agfa Baker was instrumental in establishing leading market shares in workflow, CTP and plates and more recently had assisted many local printers to reduce their environmental footprint with the implementation of chemical free and developer free plate technologies.
Baker is looking forward to getting back into the market after a recent short break with family and his beloved car collection, he says, “Curries is very much customer focused and that strength of partnership is what I look forward to building on in the coming months.”
Currie Group is the distributor of a wide range of printing solutions including Shinohara presses, ECRM CTP and Horizon finishing. It is also the exclusive supplier of HP Indigo digital presses.
