Shashidhar Shastri, president of Thermax subsidiaries in the Western Hemisphere, named industry veteran Jim Sabzali the company's new general manager for North America. Sabzali, 46, was former marketing manager of Dow Canada’s Performance Products group and more recently, was North American sales & marketing manager for Purolite. He is a former resident of Toronto now living in suburban Philadelphia. .
Other Thermax staff additions include Cindy Gresham, new sales manager for Eastern U.S., while Nancy Gleasman is the new sales manager for the Central Midwestern states. In addition, Narvinder Sachdev has been appointed vice president, Manufacturing.
Founded just over thirty-five years ago, Thermax is a publicly traded company based near Bombay, India. Annual global sales of this debt-free company approach $500 million -- from water purification chemicals, catalysts and adsorbents -- plus, an equipment and heavy machinery manufacturing division. This sector is devoted to the design and fabrication of boilers, chillers, as well as custom engineering and building of small systems up to large municipal water treatment plants. .
"Thermax’s investment in people and technology demonstrates our renewed commitment to the U.S. as well as the entire North American market," Sabzali claims. "Plus, with our equipment division, we're selling solutions, not just commodities. This sets us apart from all the other ion exchange producers." .
