Trelleborg’s marine operation has appointed Paul Welling as the company’s US President.
Following his success as Regional Director for the Middle East and Africa, in which he won Trelleborg the largest ever contract for fender systems, Welling has taken on the role of US President to establish the company’s new manufacturing and business development facility in Berryville, Virginia.
All employees from Trelleborg’s previous site in Clear Brook, Virginia, have now made the move to operate from Berryville.
Richard Hepworth, President of Trelleborg Marine Systems, commented: “Paul has a great deal of experience in project management and business development, as well as extensive knowledge and understanding of the foam and rubber fender markets. Given Paul’s success in his previous roles, we look forward to him steering our activities in the US.”
Commenting on his appointment, Welling added: “I’m looking forward to taking on this new challenge within the business and getting to know the people at Trelleborg in a different region. Business in the States is done very differently to the Middle East and I’m looking forward to getting to know our customers in the region and working with them to develop solutions that best fit their project requirements.”
