Steve Boettcher: 20 years and going strong at FLXON!

Join us in celebrating Steve’s 20th Anniversary as our Technical Services Manager!

40 years ago, Steve Boettcher began his career in printing along Highway 41 in his native Wisconsin. For the next two decades, Steve worked his way up the ranks from make ready, to operator and eventually becoming a print manager in wide web Flexo and Roto pressrooms across the state. His success stemmed from his innate inquisitiveness and commitment to seeking out and implementing practical solutions that enhanced processes and profitability. 

After using SWEDCUT® doctor blades in his pressroom to improve print quality, increase press speeds, reduce waste and lower annual doctor blade spend, Steve joined FLXON as Technical Services Manager in 2004. Since then, Steve has carried out over 400 detailed pressroom audits, focusing on operator best practices and troubleshooting training. Thanks to his efforts, numerous Flexographic and Rotogravure pressrooms in Canada, the US, Mexico, and Europe have successfully minimized their manufacturing costs. Moreover, Steve has equipped FLXON’s team with the expertise to assist customers in selecting the most suitable SWED/CUT® doctor blades for their specific needs at a reasonable cost.

Steve Boettcher was recently honored for his contributions by FLXON President, Ryan Sharkey and founder Paul Sharkey during a ceremony at the company’s Charlotte NC Headquarters.
