In June 2011, we lost one of the founders of Nova Pressroom Products, LLC, Chuck Malspies, in a tragic drowning accident. It was Chuck’s dream to build a successful company in partnership with the people he respected and whose expertise he believed would be a strong foundation. Today we are proud that Nova stands as a testament to his vision, inspiration, and hard work.
Chuck was Vice President of Technical Services and the Coating Division. He directed all Nova coating research and production. With 20 years of experience at Anchor LithKemKo and FUJIFILM Hunt Chemicals USA, he became known throughout the ink and coatings industry as the innovator of today’s top specialty aqueous and UV coatings. Backed by a Bachelor of Science in Chemical Engineering from The Ohio State University and an MBA from the University of Cincinnati, Chuck designed compatible coatings for today’s inks. His focus was to assist printers in selecting the correct products for specific jobs. He thrived through the rough and tumble of starting Nova in an unsteady economy by calmly guiding printers to practical solutions to solve their production challenges.
Chuck Malspies will always remain an integral part of Nova Pressroom Products. Each day we recommit our efforts to fulfill his dedication to our distributors, customers, and the Printing Industry.
