Brazilian Rotomoulding machinery supplier Rotoline is eyeing the European market with the appointment of a new international sales manager for Europe, Africa and the Middle East.
The company has named Craig Yorke, an industry veteran with three decades of experience under his belt, to lead sales in Europe.
With production facilities in Kent, Ohio, and Santa Catarina, Brazil, Rotoline currently supplies rotational moulding machines to north, central and south American markets as well as Australia.
Yorke is currently based in Poland where he will be “getting out and seeing customers” ahead of opening an office in a Central European country.
“This will be first office in Europe and as we start to sell machines we will then look at opening a warehouse/production facility where we can hold spares and start to stock machines for sale in Europe,” Yorke said in a statement to PNE.
Working extensively throughout Europe, Yorke was previously employed as production director at Omplast Sp; production technologist at EKO SYSTEMY Sp. in Poland and served as the launch engineer of a €25m project at Lear Corp. in Slovakia. He has also served as managing director of UK rotational moulding machine manufacturer Alan Yorke Engineering Ltd.
Rotoline currently supplies a complete range of carrossel, shuttle, lab and TNC fully-automated rotational moulding machines to companies in over 26 countries.
