New Technical Sales Manager for Gencoa

Gencoa are delighted to announce the appointment of Dr Steven Stanley as Technical Sales and Marketing Manager, joining the Gencoa sales team as a replacement for Tony Williams, who retired in August.

Steven joins us with a highly technical background in PVD processes and equipment for the optical, decorative and tribological markets. His expertise covers a wide range of process applications from visible and FIR optics to tribological coatings for space craft and components.

On commencing his role with the company, Steven commented: "I have used Gencoa as a customer on several occasions in my career and welcome the opportunity to join such a technically competent and progressive company. I hope to continue the excellent technical support to the sales and enquiry stage as seen throughout the Gencoa process."

Steven will be attending the forthcoming Vacuum Expo and SEMICON Europa events.
