Mica Corporation, a leading supplier of water-based primers and coatings to the global flexible converting industry, is pleased to welcome Dr. Marc Kullberg as technical sales representative for Europe, Turkey, Morocco, Mexico and Central America.
Marc joins Mica with more than 30 years of experience in the flexible packaging, thermal lamination, and coating industries. Marc began his career in 1986 as a research chemist for Amoco Chemical Company, where he developed catalyst chemistries. In 1994, Marc joined QPF, LLC, where he designed and developed polypropylene films, resins, and additives. Marc also has experience working with Nano-technology from his time at Nanophase Technologies Corp from 1999-2001, where he modified Nano-particle technologies for applications in non-aqueous environments and developed new catalysis chemistries and coatings.
In 2002, Marc joined GBC Films IPFG as a Senior Applications Engineer for new application development. In that role, he focused on application development for non-traditional extrusion coating markets such as lens manufacture, flexible packaging, and photovoltaic cell protection film. Marc was promoted to Manager of Engineering and Development in 2007, and one of his projects was the successful development of a fully bio-compostable commercial film. In 2009, Marc was appointed to Vice President/Global Head Thermal Films. In this role, he was responsible for new product development.
Marc obtained a Bachelor of Science in Chemistry from the University of Massachusetts, and a Ph.D. in Inorganic Chemistry from Purdue University. He currently holds 6 patents and has 12 publications.
In his new role as technical sales representative at Mica, Marc will be responsible for providing technical service for existing customers, account management, and growing sales in Europe, Russia, Morocco, Turkey, Mexico, and Central America. Marc will also work closely with our sales associates in Mexico and Turkey to provide them with technical and customer support.
Robert Hammond, Technical Sales Director for Mica said, “Each member of our global technical sales staff brings a specific skillset to Mica. Our current team members have extensive backgrounds in package design, polymer resins and properties, in-depth knowledge of extrusion coating and lamination, film manufacturing, and industry equipment knowledge. Marc’s experience with developing coatings for films, for various applications, will give us additional expertise that covers the technologies used in our industry. Marc will help Mica continue to be a technical leader and have a competitive edge in our industry.”
