Eric Defouni joins Heinzel Sales in North America
Developing the North American market for Heinzel Sales
New York, October 21, 2019.
Heinzel Sales, the sales network of HEINZEL GROUP, is happy to announce the addition of Eric Defouni as Sales Director. Eric is responsible for developing US and Canada sales for the growing pulp and paper company.
Earlier this year, HEINZEL GROUP’s subsidiary Zellstoff Pöls started up the world’s most modern kraft paper machine in Austria, increasing its total annual production capacity of bleached “Starkraft” MG paper to around 200,000 metric tons. This investment has made Starkraft one of the leading white MG kraft paper manufacturers in the world. The additional capacity allows the company to become a reliable long-term supplier to North American customers.
“We are pleased to have Eric on board”, says Sebastian Heinzel, CEO of Heinzel Sales. “Eric Defouni comes to us with over 20 years’ experience in international sales of paper and packaging products and he will be a great addition to our team. His broad knowledge and experience will allow us to grow the North American presence of Starkraft and our other products for years to come.”
