Integrated manufacturing specialist makes series of appointments across Europe

ACG Capsules, one of the largest manufacturers of empty hard capsules (part of the ACG Group), demonstrated its commitment to European expansion by completing a series of appointments across the region.

The announcement follows the appointment of Steven Facer as Vice President - Europe, who was brought in to strengthen the ACG Capsules sales and customer support teams - providing proximity for European customers. To serve the European market better, ACG will also be investing more in enhancing the capacity of its manufacturing facility in Croatia.

The recent appointments in Western Europe include Wayne Camarco as sales manager UK, Ireland and Scandinavia. Wayne has been brought in to support existing customers and new business development. He has well over 20 years' experience in the pharmaceutical and fine chemicals industry, first in R&D with Rhone Poulenc in the US and France and later in technical sales for Ashland Specialty Ingredients in the US.

Wayne will report into the Western European team lead, Hans Moxter, who was brought into the business towards the end of 2016. He commented: "We'd like to welcome Wayne to the team, which has grown significantly over the last year. His experience and contacts will prove invaluable as we continue on our growth trajectory."

In Eastern Europe Denis Balazinec has been promoted to sales associate, to help build and develop business in the region. And Mario Sasek has recently completed his training to become fully operational in providing technical support on machine trials. They will report into Snjezana Sirovec, who manages the Eastern regional team. She said: "ACG is adding deeper layers of expertise to its business. It is excellent to be working alongside such high calibre individuals to deliver valued products and solutions across this growing region."

Steven Facer added: "As an established business and the second largest capsule maker in the world, ACG has always had a strong foothold in Europe. We are now keen to accelerate our growth, and to build long-term relations to serve our customers better. Our proximity to customers and combined industry knowledge is creating great feedback. In the current market, ACG offers quality capsules and other manufacturing solutions throughout the supply chain for the pharmaceutical and nutraceutical sector. We offer prompt local support with consistent pricing which gives ACG the right positioning to leverage opportunities in the region. The market is ripe for growth."
