Christian commented on the recent changes, "With the two organizations merging, I am excited about the opportunity it affords us to better serve the market.  It will allow us to bring best of class products and services to our customers. One of our primary objectives will be to provide total customer satisfaction to our broad customer base, as they are the ultimate judge of the quality of products and services we provide."

Emanuele Taccon will continue to be responsible for Vulcan sales in Europe and Asia.  He is located in Lodi, Italy.  Stephane Starck will be responsible for the MacDermid (Rollin) sales in Europe.
