The Story

This joint venture is formed by four entities coming together to offer premium foil enhancement and tray forming solutions. The two brands represented are truly complimentary of each other, and have each been looking to build a local team for the North American market. Between our unique solutions and highly capable team we are excited to bring real value to the market!

The Gietz-Vinfoil Americas team is comprised of..

Chris Leary brings 20+ years of equipment sales experience in the folding carton industry working for W.H. Leary Co., Inc.  As Director of Sales, he led sales growth of gluing and inspection systems year over year.  His experience working with OEMs, and understanding of North American converters will help to build this new company brand.

Jody LeBlanc brings 25+ years of experience working for various OEMs and suppliers to the converting industry.  “Jody knows our customers and spare parts of the various machines.  We are excited to have her on our team with her knowledge and background,” says Chris Leary.

The two product brands that have joined forces include..

Gietz a Swiss based company founded in 1892 has experience in the US market since the late 70s with about 150 machines installed.  “The Gietz brand is recognized for precision foil stamping and embossing, and along with our HTF tray forming machine we believe there is a lot of future potential in this market. We started in 2018 to offer customers direct local services with Alex Balke of Gietz USA LLC. Now with Chris’ leadership, and Vinfoil products we are positioned to offer the complete range of foil embellishment solutions.  We have a great team in place and can achieve a lot of synergies”, says Hansjörg Gietz, President of Gietz Holding AG in Gossau, Switzerland.

Vinfoil, founded in 2007, has developed unique cold transfer solutions with revolutionary technology. “Our patented Multiple Foil Use, and Vinfoil Intelligent Foil Optimizing Software has already helped more than 75 customers achieve optimal foil savings, and further develop their cold transfer business. With the support and experience of both Chris Leary and Gietz, Vinfoil is confident we can work on sharing and showing all the great things of foil embellishments to the North American printing industry”, says Vincent van der Heijden, President & CEO of Vinfoil.
