ANDOVER, MA, September 14, 2020 – Standard Finishing Systems, a leading supplier of post-press and paper handling solutions, recently announced that Karl Belafi has joined the firm as the Territory Sales Manager for Eastern Canada.
Belafi began his professional career 27 years ago at KBR Graphics, his family’s business, which was the oldest independent printing equipment dealer in Canada until it closed its doors in early 2020 after 42 years of operation. At KBR, Karl learned the industry from every angle, holding titles such as: Service Technician, Horizon Operator Trainer, Marketing Manager, and, finally, Director of Sales & Major Accounts. Standard’s lines of finishing solutions were the top product lines for over 32 years at KBR, giving Karl in-depth knowledge of and experience with Standard’s finishing products.
“Standard enjoyed a close and productive partnership with KBR Graphics for many years,” said David Reny, Executive Vice President, Standard Finishing Systems. “We are thrilled to have Karl join our team to help us serve our eastern Canadian customers with his thorough, hands-on knowledge of our products and experience in this industry.”
“I’m ready and excited to hit the ground running at Standard,” said Belafi. “Having worked closely with the company before, it has been a pleasure reconnecting with familiar faces. I’m looking forward to representing Standard Horizon and Hunkeler’s lines of automated, innovative print finishing and processing solutions with the market in eastern Canada.”
