Resin Infusion Bow in Reichhold Booth at IBEX '02

01 February 2002

Reichhold, Inc. will showcase a three-foot-wide by five-foot-tall bow section from Sonic USA Boats at the IBEX boat building show.

The bow section was constructed using Reichhold's Hydrex 100-HF, a 100% vinyl ester resin developed for vacuum infusion processes. Sonic uses Reichhold's low-styrene Hydrex 100-HF resins throughout its high-performance line of boats. The Sonic bow in the Reichhold booth will be open so that boat builders can see the results of the resin infusion process using Hydrex 100-HF.

See it at booth (#1613) in Ft. Lauderdale, FL, USA, February 6-8. A full-sized SONIC will appear in the BALTEK booth as well.

Reichhold has also appointed Gary Krall as president and CEO, with the retirement of Yoshi Kawashima, current chairman and CEO, effective March 1. Krall currently serves as president and COO. Kawashima will serve as adviser to Reichhold's Board of Directors through June while he will continue his responsibilities as chairman and CEO for DIC Imaging Products and as senior vice president for DIC International.

As president and CEO, Krall will report to Reichhold's Board of Directors in Tokyo, Japan. Krall's emphasis will be on strengthening Reichhold's global position in its composites and coating and performance resins businesses to make the company stronger and more competitive.
