Gas control innovator Rotarex SA has appointed a new General Manager to focus on expanding the business in both North America and Mexico.

The Luxembourg-based business has appointed Robert Griffin to the role, who most recently served as Director of Operations at Isolatek International. Griffin also spent 13 years at Linde in plant management, sales, engineering and product management positions.

Griffin takes the helm from Isabelle Schmitz, who will move her focus to new responsibilities as President of the newly-created Rotarex Solutions Division, as well as serving on the company’s Corporate Board of Directors.

Rotarex Group’s CEO Philippe Schmitz commented on the new appointment, “Rob brings strong strategic and operational experience in the gas sector, which will be important to leading the expansion of our business in North America and Mexico.”

“He already has some great ideas how to further improve our excellent customer service and better meet the needs of our customers. We look forward to implementing these plans in the upcoming months – with the focus on becoming the preferred gas equipment supplier to North America’s leading gas companies and installers.”
