Tokyo, Japan & Brussels, Belgium, 7 July 2015 – Asahi Photoproducts, a pioneer in flexographic photopolymer plate development, today announced the appointment of Mr. Paul Chant as UK Branch Manager.

Chant comments, “I am delighted to be back with the company at such an exciting time. It is clear that recent appointments to the UK-based technical support team have really strengthened the business unit and have played a major role in recent growth and success. The A.Q.U.A. service is a clear differentiator, and combined with market leading products, places Asahi in a very strong position for future success.
