In early February of 2021, Chris Johnston joined the SIKORA subsidiary SIKORA INTERNATIONAL CORPORATION in Peachtree City, Georgia, USA as a Business Development Engineer for the Hose & Tube industry. SIKORA thus lays the foundation for further growth of this business unit.

“We are pleased to welcome Chris Johnston, a colleague who possesses broad experience in the Hose & Tube market. Together with our employee Brandy Herrmann, he will support existing and contact new customers in the U.S. and Canada,” says John Dognazzi, Managing Director of SIKORA INTERNATIONAL CORP. “In the U.S., there are many Hose & Tube companies in the automotive, large-diameter pipe, medical device and industrial hose sectors. With the additional personnel, we now have the capacity to target these companies.”

The graduated mechanical engineer has many years of experience as a project manager and sales engineer in the Hose & Tube industry. Most recently, he worked for five years in the area of elastomer hoses as Product Manager – Elastomer Systems (Sales) supporting domestic and international accounts, and thus he brings with him the prerequisites to further expand the Hose & Tube business unit. With the personnel reinforcement, SIKORA INTERNATIONAL CORP lays the foundation for a stronger focus of the SIKORA business units Hose & Tube, Wire & Cable and Plastics, as well as for further growth.
