Global composites manufacturer Exel Composites has appointed John Mertic to the role of area sales manager for North America to handle growing business across the US, Canada, and the Caribbean.
Mertic takes up the role from the organization’s production team in Erlanger, Kentucky, and will lead the business’ telecoms offering across North America. The appointment comes at a time where the Findland-based company is looking to expand its footprint in North America.
Mertic sad, “Exel has a some very innovative composite solutions for the 5G market, and I’m looking forward to meeting with new and existing customers to see how we can solve their challenges with composites. Beyond the industries with which Exel is well established, such as telecoms, there are numerous potential growth sectors in North America. For instance, my experiences within the automotive and plastics sectors have given me the drive to explore how thermoplastics could be used to make transportation more sustainable. My role here will not only help to integrate composites into these applications, but also to expand Exel’s visibility and market share across the USA as a whole.”
