Drytac® Team Grows as New Sales Staff Added in U.S. and Canada

Friday, May 01, 2015

Press release from the issuing company

Richmond, VA - Drytac, an international manufacturer of adhesive-coated products, is pleased to announce the appointment of two industry veterans to the U.S. and Canadian sales teams. Brad Haupt will serve as Midwest Regional Sales Manager for Drytac Corp. in the United States, and Paul Barker will fill the newly created position of Custom Coatings Account Manager – Outside Sales for Drytac Canada. 

Haupt, whose sales career has spanned more than 30 years in print finishing equipment and supplies, joins Drytac from GBC. For approximately 20 years, he focused on the wide format market and was selected to start a new Digital Print Finishing division as part of the GBC sales management team. 

In 2007, Haupt took on the role of Business Development Manager – Strategic Accounts to increase wide format product sales, through multiple sales channels, into GBC’s largest accounts. These efforts led to his transition to Strategic Account Manager, a position in which he was responsible for over $10MM in business. For Drytac, Haupt will be tasked with building upon existing accounts and acquiring new business accounts throughout the Midwest U.S.

Barker, who has more than 28 years of outside sales experience in the Plastics, Printing and Packaging markets, brings excellent multi-market knowledge on how materials interact with different surfaces, packaging equipment and environmental conditions. 

Over the last ten years, Barker has been involved in the printed pressure sensitive label market. Prior to that, he gained experience in the Injection and Blow Moulding industry with Reliance Products in Winnipeg and spent another 14 years in plastics conversion and polypropylene manufacturing with Transilwrap Canada and AET Films U.S., respectively. He will be responsible for growing Drytac Canada’s custom coating business in the Industrial, Packaging, Automotive, Label, and Building material markets.
