Hoeganaes Corporation, Cinnaminson, New Jersey, USA, has announced the appointment of Jim Shaul to the position of Vice President, Sales and Marketing. He will replace Bill Michael effective July 1, 2012 and report to Manfred Weber, CEO, GKN Powder Metallurgy.

Shaul holds a Bachelor’s degree in Industrial Technology from the Buffalo State’s SUNY College and a Master’s degree from Rochester’s Simon Business School. He currently lives in Rochester Hills, Michigan.

Shaul’s primary responsibilities will be the direction of all global sales and marketing efforts for Hoeganaes Corporation.

Powder Metallurgy:The original net-shape production process

Powder Metallurgy components are relied upon by a wide variety of manufacturing industries, from automotive to power tools, household appliances, chemical engineering, filtration and more.

The main reason for the technology’s success is its cost-effectiveness at producing high volumes of net-shape components, combined with its ability to allow the manufacture of products that, because of the production processes, simply cannot be manufactured by other methods.
