Jason Cox is the next former Taylor Bloxham executive to find a new job. Streamline Press in Leicester took on eleven from its collapsed neighbour and have joined Hamptons. Now Cox has joined Pureprint.
He will be business development director for the Sussex print group charged with making full use of print and value add finishing facilities. “The array of in house services at Pureprint excited me. Especially some of the finishing such as foil blocking, lamination, UV varnishing and embossing, which I have never had the benefit of before,” Cox says. “The digital facility is one of the best in the country and having the other direct mail and POS services is a real bonus.”
Cox had been with Taylor Boxham since joining from Greenshires in 2018. He had been sales director of Greenshires having joined that business in 2003. He started in the industry at William Caple, now part of Adare, as a marketing executive.
And he is anticipating the new challenge with relish. “It was not just the array of services and extensive capabilities that attracted me to Pureprint, but the focus and dedication to their customers. The customer facilities for press passing are the best I have seen in the industry and the welcome customers receive at the factory is second to none,” he says.
Pureprint managing director Richard Osborne adds: “I am delighted that Jason has agreed to join us. He brings with him the huge experience that he does but also the desire to introduce and engage clients with the broad product and service offering that Pureprint now offers.”
Taylor Bloxham sales director Graham Farrell and Richard Jones, prepress colour specialist, have joined technical colour specialist Wes Sykes at Hampton Printing, while Simon Wood, now business development director at Streamline Press, recruited a further ten from Taylor Bloxham where he had been group account director.
Other Taylor Bloxham staff, however, have yet to find berths, including highly regarded technical colour specialist Chris Bolton.
