As of March 1, 2012, Alfred Rak joined American Starlinger-Sahm, Inc., a 100 percent subsidiary of Starlinger & Co GmbH of Austria, as vice president of sales.
In his new position, Rak
oversees the entire Starlinger product portfolio for the US and Canadian market. He
looks back on almost 30 years experience in international sales and trade, his
previous position having been President and CEO of KIEFEL Technolgies, Inc.,
sales and service organization for European made machinery for KIEFEL and
Brückner, and member of Brückner Group.
With a decade of experience on
the North American Market, Rak sees growing potential especially in the field
of plastics recycling: “I am sure that the world of plastic manufacturers will
be more directed into reusable processes, meaning that recycling technologies
are absolutely on the upswing. Starlinger’s position as a market leader for
plastic processing machines will open new avenues to customers for more
sustainable technologies and savings within the arena of recycling.”
