PyroGenesis Canada Inc. (TSX:PYR, NASDAQ:PYR) said it has enhanced its expertise by retaining Olivier Dubois as the company’s principal advisor for European Operations and Sales.
PyroGenesis said Dubois is well known to the company from his time at Aubert & Duval as VP Business Unit Metal Powders. He is a highly experienced sales, marketing, and business process executive in the metal transformation industry, with deep knowledge of the Aerospace, Space and Defense Markets.
Dubois was most recently at Aubert & Duval, a division of the French mining company Eramet, where he spent six years at the headquarter in Paris, France, first as Director of Sales for Aubert & Duval Forging Operations in India, then VP Business Unit Metal Powders for Additive and chairman of the Board of Aubert & Duval Spain, and most recently as project officer for the Eramet Alloys Division.
Prior to that, Dubois was VP of Sales and Marketing at Manoir Industries Group, a global metal processing company focused on high-tech casting and forging that was acquired and consolidated into LISI Aerospace, the high-tech aeronautical parts and engine components manufacturer. He also spent three years at Alcoa Inc, now Arconic, in the Howmet Casting Branch, as sales director for Europe, and eleven years as sales manager for the European and Asian Regions for the Manufacturing Division of Teleflex Inc.
As part of his contract with PyroGenesis Additive, Dubois will support broadening the company’s global strategy, with an initial goal to help structure the company’s plan and establish European Operations.
“Olivier is well known in the additive manufacturing sector, with a unique understanding of the customer market in Europe, where he has spent the majority of his career,” said Massimo Dattilo, VP PyroGenesis Additive in a statement.
“With his vast expertise encompassing sales and marketing along with business process optimization, combined with his familiarity of PyroGenesis’ strategy while running the activity for additive metal powders at Aubert & Duval, Olivier will offer both deep strategic insight and operational know-how as we move to execute on our European and global expansion plans,” he added.
PyroGenesis Canada is a leader in the design, development, manufacture and commercialization of advanced plasma processes and sustainable solutions which reduce greenhouse gases (GHG) and are economically attractive alternatives to conventional ‘dirty’ processes.
The company has created proprietary, patented and advanced plasma technologies that are being vetted and adopted by multiple multibillion-dollar industry leaders in four massive markets: iron ore pelletization, aluminum, waste management, and additive manufacturing.
