REPI, a manufacturer of performance additives and colours for polyurethanes and thermoplastics, has announced the appointment of Dimitris Dounis as the new managing director of the Italian company’s US susidiary in Gastonia, North Carolina. He is tasked with further growing the company’s presence in North and South America.
Dounis brings over twenty years of extensive experience in the chemical and polyurethanes industries. He holds a degree in chemical engineering and polymers science and has held various executive positions in multinational companies.
REPI entered the United States market, opening its own offices, laboratory and technical service department in 2003 to introduce the colour ranges for polyurethane applications. The line of products for thermoplastic polymers followed soon after and in 2012 a brand new facility with state of the art laboratory, manufacturing, as well as prototyping capabilities for PET packaging applications, was inaugurated in Gastonia, North Carolina. Today, the American subsidiary serves the Americas with the complete product range, directly or through established partners.
