RotoMetrics has appointed Shaun Pullen as general manager, RotoMetrics Asia. In this newly created role, Pullen will report to the company’s president and chief executive officer and will have responsibility for the firm’s Thailand manufacturing operations as well as sales and business development throughout Asia.
During the past two and a half years, RotoMetrics has successfully scaled-up Asia's first narrow web rotary precision die manufacturing operation. Pullen has been instrumental in leading this start-up effort, taking a ‘green-field’ site to a facility that now supplies the majority of customers in Asia with 24 hour delivery.
Pullen has spent the majority of his career in the printing industry. Before joining RotoMetrics, he served for 16 years as regional sales manager with JM Heaford, a producer of flexo mounting systems and specialist flexo and gravure ink equipment. Prior to this, he worked for the UK agent of Mark Andy as a commissioning engineer installing narrow web printing and converting systems. Pullen has been living in Thailand and networking in Asia for over 11 years, gaining first-hand experience in local languages, customs and business etiquette. He has a technical background in mechanical engineering, originally specializing in turbine power generation then moving into heat treatment and metallurgy.
