Growth plans announced for Stahl’s wet-end division1 December 2009
Stahl’s strategy for the development of its Colours and Tanning Products (C&TP) division has received an extra boost in the last couple of months under the dynamic leadership of Jacques Potier. The company hope that their C&TP division will grow substantially in the coming years through a determined increase in wet-end chemical activities throughout the world.
Among others, one of the areas for expansion is the automotive industry where Stahl’s leather finish department already has a strong foothold and very good customer relationships. This position of global leadership will provide an excellent platform on which the entire Stahl organisation can capitalise to build a strong sales presence in all automotive sectors.
With immediate effect, responsibility for C&TP sales to tanners providing leather for the automotive industry will be placed in the hands of the automotive team, led by Mike Tomkin. For these activities, Tomkin and his team will report to Jacques Potier, enabling the technical and marketing staff to work closely together.
Under Tomkin’s leadership, a highly specialised C&TP automotive sales team is being created to spearhead the new sales drive. Working closely with the rest of the C&TP business the team it is charged with developing new opportunities and expansion on a higher level worldwide.
