ASIA – Nordson Corporation has made two appointments in Asia for the packaging film and sheet sector, and fluid coating sector.
Sarawut Phanchaicharoen has been appointed Southeast Asia regional sales manager for packaging film and sheet markets, based in Bangkok, Thailand.
In this position, he will be responsible for sales of Nordson’s Polymer Processing Systems (PPS) product lines, in particular Nordson Extrusion Dies Industries extrusion die systems.
“Sarawut brings fifteen years of experience in sales and engineering for precision equipment systems in the Southeast Asia region,” said Grant Eekelschot, Asia Pacific commercial director for Nordson PPS. “He will provide customers with valuable support for our sheet and film die systems, as well as other Nordson PPS Components for melt processing.”
Meanwhile, Jie Hu is the new sales manager in China for the Nordson Extrusion Dies Industries fluid coating product line - responsible for sales of the full range of fluid coating products for applying water- or solvent-based coatings, including Premier fixed-lip and Ultracoat flexible-lip slot dies, die positioners, and fluid delivery systems.
Jason Yin, country general manager for extrusion, said, “Jie’s sales and marketing experience with products for paper, film, and nonwoven web converting will enable him to provide valuable service to our customers in China. He will be particularly helpful to companies that are considering the advantages of slot die coating as a more precise and efficient alternative to conventional application methods such as roll coating.”
