The bearing-material manufacturer sees the European pumps, marine and rail markets as key to growth.

Penzhorn intends to increase the company’s attention on these industries in the initial phase of his appointment and will expand the target industries to include the high-potential automotive and agricultural sectors later.

He will act as the key contact for Vesconite in Europe and will assist clients with application assessments and urgent requests as he promotes the company’s self-lubricating wear-resistant no-swell materials.

Notes Penzhorn: "Europe represents a significant growth opportunity, with the European subsidiary having seen sizeable growth since it was established in 2017."
