Paper Converting Machine Company (PCMC), a division of Barry-Wehmiller, has appointed Stan Blakney as president of its global operations.
In addition to leading the company’s US business, Blakney now will assume leadership of operations in Italy and Serbia. Since he joined PCMC, he has led the company’s expansion in flexographic-printing, bag-converting, and hygiene solutions, while also continuing to drive growth in tissue converting and packaging.
The creation of this new role is expected to enable PCMC to unify its operations worldwide, expand into new geographies across all of its markets and enhance aftermarket support globally for its customers.
‘We’ve seen tremendous growth and opportunity with the introduction of STAX Technologies and Hudson-Sharp to the PCMC family in the last two years,’ said Blakney. ‘As we continue to bring our teams closer together, we are able to build our capacity to provide unified industry-leading service in all regions of the world. This includes enhanced access to parts, aligned Industry 4.0 solutions, and around-the-clock care. Our goal is to give our customers a strong global service organization, with the support they need to keep their businesses moving forward.’
