Trexel has appointed Roger Kaufmann as its new Director of Business Development. According to the company, Kaufmann has joined the company on a part-time basis and in this new role will work with Trexel's European as well as global sales team to identify new customers and applications for Trexel's 'MuCell' and 'TecoCell' foaming products. Accordingly, in addition to devoting much of his time to expanding Trexel's foam markets, Kaufmann will continue as CEO of GK Concept, a design firm based in Dresden, Germany.

GK Concept and Trexel look back on a long collaboration that culminated in the founding of 2Limit. 2Limit is a joint venture between the two companies that deals with the simulation and design of parts and tools for foamed parts.


As Roger Kaufmann is a strong proponent of foaming in injection moulding and GK Concept has developed considerable skills and expertise in foaming applications, Roger's addition to Trexel's team was the next step in the development of the close partnership. Brian Bechard, CEO of Trexel: "We have considered Roger a member of our team for many years; this appointment formalises that and we are excited to have Roger help us create new opportunities to expand our technology."
Dr. Hartmut Traut
Kaufmann will be based in Dresden and will work across the European region.

Trexel also announces the retirement of Dr Hartmut Traut. Dr. Traut served as Trexel's Business Director for Europe for 19 years, rising to VP International Relations in recent years. Dr. Traut helped build Europe into Trexel's largest market and the partnerships he established had a major impact on the company's global growth. In recognition of his many years of service and his role in the development of Trexel, the company has awarded him the honorary title of Vice President Emeritus.
