"With more than 30 years of dedication to the leading inspection/rewinder product line, Kevin brings a breadth of knowledge, experience and vision to the role," the company says. "In recent years with Gourlay’s leadership, the offline finishing brand has continued to place significant focus on its equipment and service offerings. Moving forward as vice president, Gourlay will continue this trend, extending the Rotoflex portfolio with new and innovative products and offering enhanced retrofit and service plan options to its installation base of more than 7000 machines worldwide."
To support the future growth plan, Gourlay has recently appointed Ken Daming to business director, Arpeco. In his new role Daming will drive the sales efforts of new equipment, as well as support the parts and service team dedicated to the horizontal product line.
Additionally, since the Arpeco acquisition in 2010, the unique equipment profile has joined the Rotoflex product portfolio, giving converters the option of a horizontal platform, now with advanced Rotoflex controls and web management technology. The offerings in the Arpeco line by Rotoflex include the Tracker S, Tracker L and VisionTrack, a full range of unique horizontal equipment.
“Kevin and Ken are superior resources in the world of offline finishing,” says Kevin Wilken, president and CEO, Mark Andy Inc. “We are excited to welcome them into their new roles and believe their experience and market knowledge will further support the global growth initiatives of this extremely important brand in the Mark Andy portfolio.”
