Nico Coenen was appointed global business development manager of electronics at Plasmatreat at the start of the year. “With his profound market knowledge and extensive network, Nico Coenen will play a leading role in expanding our businesses in the international electronics markets," said Christian Buske, CEO of Plasmatreat GmbH and president/CEO of the Plasmatreat Group.
The use of atmospheric pressure plasma for the pretreatment of material surfaces is becoming increasingly important in the electronics industry. Plasmatreat systems are already used today for pretreating PCBs and SMD assemblies before conformal coating, for manufacturing LEDs or in the production of media-tight electronic hybrid components in the injection molding process, to give just a few examples. But countless applications worldwide have yet to discover this sophisticated pretreatment technology.
In his new role, Coenen will work with Plasmatreat subsidiaries, technology centers and representatives in 35 countries. "As I see it, my main task is to make the electronics world far more aware of the special capabilities of Openair-Plasma and the amazing results”, he stated. Coenen can look back on a successful 20-year career in sales and project management. As Global Sales Director for jet printing technology at Mycronic and sales and global account manager at Asymtek Nordson, Buske believes he is ideally equipped for the task.
Plasmatreat is the international market leader in the development of atmospheric plasma technologies and the construction of plasma systems for pretreating material surfaces. The Openair plasma jet technology patented by Plasmatreat over 20 years ago, from which the multi-award-winning PlasmaPlus coating technology evolved, is now used in virtually all sectors of industry throughout the world. The Plasmatreat Group has technology centers in Germany (headquarters), the USA, Canada, China and Japan as well as subsidiaries and sales partners in 35 countries.
