Diab Establishes Canadian Sales Operation

06 October 2008

As a result of a sustained increase in the demand for its products from the Canadian market, core materials specialist Diab has established its own sales operation in Drummondville, Quebec.

Heading the new operation, as Canadian Business Manager is John Biron, who has joined Diab from reinforcements manufacturer SciArt where he was Operations Manager.

John has been tasked with establishing Diab Canada as a full service business that will offer both product and technical support. He will also be developing further the use of Diab core materials and sandwich composite technology in the aerospace, wind energy, transportation and marine markets.

Commenting on the decision to establish the Canadian operation, Charles Previte, Diab’s Americas VP Sales & Marketing, said, “We have established a Canadian operation in order to further enhance our support to a market where we see real growth potential for our extensive range of core materials. The setting up of our Canadian operation is further evidence of our aim to provide global support on a ‘local’ basis that in the last few years has seen us establish new operations in China, Thailand, India and Spain.”
