As the consumption of fiber-based products is increasing by the day across the globe, manufacturing enterprises have to consistently change their strategies in order to face the dynamically evolving challenges in a better manner.
Fiber-Line, a provider of high-performance, coated fibers in the U.S. with a growing international presence, has just revealed plans to enhance its management team in order to achieve considerable growth and operational excellence as well.
Back in December of last year, Taglich Brothers, Inc. completed a management buyout of the company that helps when searching for new energy reserves and extends the life of fiber optic telecommunication cables.
With the new initiative, Fiber-Line will try to carve out a niche for itself in other sectors such as oil & gas, composites and industrial markets; while it will also seek high growth in the Brazil, India, China and Russia or ‘BRIC’ areas.
Bill French, an executive with over 20 years of experience in the space will now be the president and COO at Fiber-Line for its Americas business, and will look after the business strategy, operational improvement and process management of the company. Having a deep understanding of polymer, extrusion and coatings streams, French has been associated with General Electric, Elementis Specialties and Momentive Performance Materials that was formerly known as GE Silicones, in the past.
And yet another senior executive joining the board of Fiber-Line will be Rosie Savage, who too is equipped with extensive expertise in the industry specializing in the commercial aspects of specialty chemicals business. Savage will be the company’s new global marketing manager, responsible for taking care of its marketing development and implementation.
Established in 1987, Fiber-Line is headquartered in Hatfield, Penn. with operations in North Carolina and the Netherlands.
