Paper Converting Machine Company (PCMC) recently named Stan Blakney as president of its global operations.
In addition to leading the company’s U.S. business, as he has since February 2019, Blakney now will assume leadership of operations in Italy and Serbia, as well.
Since Blakney joined PCMC, he has led the company’s expansion in flexographic-printing, bag-converting, and hygiene solutions, while also continuing to drive growth in tissue converting and packaging, the company said in a news release. The creation of this new role enables PCMC to further unify its operations worldwide and expand into new geographies across all of its markets. It also enhances aftermarket support globally for its customers.
“We’ve seen tremendous growth and opportunity with the introduction of STAX Technologies and Hudson-Sharp to the PCMC family in the last two years,” Blakney said. “As we continue to bring our teams closer together, we are able to build our capacity to provide unified industry-leading service in all regions of the world. This includes enhanced access to parts, aligned Industry 4.0 solutions and around-the-clock care.”
PCMC is a division of Barry-Wehmiller and is a supplier of high-performance converting machinery for the tissue, nonwovens, package-printing, and bag-converting industries worldwide.
