Horizon Technology, headquartered in St. Marys, Pennsylvania, USA, has announced the appointment of Tom Freemer, as its new Director of Technology & Business Development. Freemer, a former design and materials expert at Hoeganaes, has experience of working with numerous OEMs and auto makers.
The company states that Freemer was brought on board to work with customers to make their product manufacturable in Powder Metallurgy, and in the most cost-efficient way possible. He will also help to steer future advances in technology and materials.
“I try to look at things from the beginning to the end of the process. The customer cares about how we can make PM manufacturable. I’ve done everything from product design, tool design and process design all while factoring in customers quality expectations for the end product. When we’re on the shop floor with visitors and walk them through the process, from our CNC compaction to our high-temp sintering, we want to give then peace of mind about the technical aspect,” stated Freemer.
Freemer holds an engineering degree from Penn State University and, in addition to his accomplishments at Hoeganaes, has spent time directing product development at Advanced Powder Products, GKN Sinter Metals, PMG, and Symmco.
