Frank Mallozzi, former Chief Revenue Officer at Electronics for Imaging (EFI) has joined the UFabrik board of directors. His principal role will be to develop growth strategies for the brand across the Americas.
Last year, Frank stepped back from EFI, where he held various roles including Chief Revenue Officer, and Senior Vice President Worldwide Sales and Marketing over a 25-year period.
During his tenure he was a key strategist in EFI’s transformation that has seen it metamorphosize from a software company servicing OEM partnerships with its ground-breaking Fiery Color Server into the world’s leading industrial printer manufacturer.
He was an integral part of the senior management team that oversaw 45 acquisitions including Printcafé, VUTEk, Jetrion, Cretaprint, Reggiani Macchine, Matan, Rialco, Optitex, and Escada Systems, all of which, drove expansion into new market sectors, and created new verticals.
Frank Mallozzi said, “The UFabrik proposition is super impressive and disruptive. As a global manufacturer, we have everything in place to service worldwide territories at scale. Our current 12-product portfolio reflects the most popular soft signage applications in the market today, and is shaped by unparalleled consistency, eco-sensitivity, and breaks new ground in quality and cost. I look forward to expanding the total addressable market and establishing the brand’s market share into a dominant global entity.”
UFabrik has established strategic offices and warehouse logistics facilities in the states of Texas, New York, and Nevada, and LexJet, part of the S-One Group, is its exclusive North American distribution partner.
The premium range of UFabrik super-wide digital print-ready display graphic textiles are specified by major international brands for multiple market applications such as backlit, frontlit, blockout, backdrops, TFS, SEG, wall wraps, banners, flags, canopies, tents, gazebos, and more.
UFabrik offers vibrant color reproduction and high-quality performance. The range of materials, attractive price point and sustainable focus has made it the most popular choice for retail, exhibitions, and events – providing 95% of all applications required by these market sectors. All products meet the required health & safety, fire, and environmental standards.
UFabrik benefits from an unprecedented manufacturing infrastructure that encompasses the whole supply chain including weaving, washing, dyeing, coating, and finishing. Its unrivalled scalability is fulfilled from two manufacturing sites where all processes are currently contained.
With 14 coating lines in operation, and with additional production lines scheduled for future implementation, UFabrik has unique scalable capacity and the ability to compete on a global scale like no other textile corporation.
Available in in 3.2m and 5m widths, UFabrik represents high-performance innovation compatible with all leading global wide-format UV, Latex and dye sublimation technologies including EFI, Durst, Agfa, Mimaki, HP, and Canon.
UFabrik provides the North American market with premium quality textiles that include high-performance recycled products. Its localized warehouse logistics infrastructure enables UFabrik to provide very significant levels of stock consistency to the region, underpinned with LexJet’s extensive levels of state-to-state availability and delivery, previously unseen in the US.
Robin East, Chief Commercial Officer, UFabrik said, “We are delighted to welcome Frank to the UFabrik board. His strategic business development experience is second to none. His relationships and insight of the customer journey alongside his technical understanding will drive UFabrik to become Americas number-one brand for the retail, event, and exhibitions markets.
“Frank is a luminary in the digital printing community where he enjoys a reputation based on widespread trust and respect. His appointment to the UFabrik board represents a supreme endorsement of the UFabrik range, which will not go unnoticed by the industry at large.”
