After more than six years at the helm of MetalFX Technology, Andrew Ainge will step down as managing director to concentrate on his new business, blanc canvas Limited. MetalFX Technology has operated as part of Ciba Color Services, a Ciba Inc. business unit, since August 2006.
“Since inception in 2002, Andrew has spearheaded the success of one of the most innovative metallic color systems,” Sonia Megert Marshall, Ciba Color services head, said. “He has developed a range of products which have revolutionized the way metallic colors are printed and today, MetalFX Technology continues to offer exciting, never-before-seen possibilities for the print and design world. We wish Andrew the best of luck in his new venture with blanc canvas and hope that his passion for business innovation wins him the success he has achieved with MetalFX.”
“MetalFX has played the biggest and most successful part of my career to date so it will be sad to officially hand over control to someone else,” Mr. Ainge said. “I am looking forward to the new challenges which lie ahead for blanc canvas.”
