Being a global network of colour quality management experts, at Mellow Colour we are always excited when the opportunity arises to expand our community.
So we were delighted to be able to form an alliance with the latest recruit to our group of print professionals, Joo Yuckpark.
We met Joo at the recent Drupa 2016 printing equipment exhibition in Germany, where he was representing his business Asian Net Korea, an international trading company specialising in used equipment.
Joo had been looking for opportunities to complement the existing Asian Net products and services for some time and, with thousands of the world’s leading printing industry experts in attendance, he knew Drupa would be a great chance to meet like-minded print specialists.
So he was particularly impressed the specialised colour management software, ISO 12647 training and consultancy that Mellow Colour offer.
“Some of our clients are in the print and packaging industry, so I visited Drupa in June to do some research,” explained Joo. “As soon as I visited the Mellow Colour booth, I knew I had found real experts in this area.
“They treat their colour management software as a tool, and focus on the importance of printing expertise and know-how.
“From the very first meeting, I wanted to become a Mellow Colour partner, and now I’m very glad to join them.”
In early September, Joo and Mellow Colour’s managing director Alan Dresch attended the successful K-Print Week exhibition in Seoul on the Asian Net stand, where they had the opportunity to meet with some of Korea’s key printers, publishers and pre-press companies.
“The printing industry in Korea is becoming more competitive,” said Joo. “A lot of work has already moved to China and Vietnam, however it is our belief that printers should improve their print quality management and their production systems rather than lower their prices.
“I am confident that Mellow Colour’s print quality management system will help printers in Korea to improve printing quality and business performance by following the global standard ISO 12647.”
Joo will be the Mellow Colour consultant partner for Korea, helping our colour quality management system to continue its expansion around the globe.
“Joo has all the qualities to make a success of what we are confident will be a long, prosperous and fun time working together,” said Alan.
A warm welcome to the Mellow Colour family, Joo!
