Germany-based TOMRA Sorting Recycling has announced two additions to what it calls its North America product support team. Sean Hyacinth has been added as a field service engineer for TOMRA optical sorting equipment, and Kevin Javier Montalvo has assumed the newly created position of customer project manager, recycling. Hyacinth and Montalvo will work directly with TOMRA dealers and customers.
“The demands of the recycling industry today are such that sorting equipment manufacturers must provide customers the right sorting solutions, ensure seamless equipment integration and installation, and deliver superior support after the sale, so the equipment delivers optimum throughput throughout its service life,” says Carlos Manchado Atienza, regional director Americas for TOMRA Sorting Recycling. “The experience and enthusiasm Sean and Kevin bring to the TOMRA team serve to strengthen our commitment to customers and the success of their businesses.”
Hyacinth has more than 20 years of field service and management experience, providing equipment installation, maintenance and repair services during his career.
“TOMRA has well earned a reputation throughout the industry for providing innovative recycling solutions that elevate product purity,” says Hyacinth.
Montalvo has previously worked in the quality department for a global infrastructure developer, where he managed weekly meetings with the customer on a $750 million highway project.
“TOMRA is a champion of the circular economy and a leader in providing sorting solutions to the waste, metals and plastics recycling markets,” comments Montalvo. “I am proud to join the TOMRA team and look forward to managing customer projects, so equipment installations and upgrades are completed on time and within budget.”
Both Hyacinth and Montalvo will work from field-based offices for TOMRA Sorting Recycling, which describes itself as a global supplier of sensor-based sorting equipment.
