Mr Foskett to strengthen E.T. Horn Composites business
Sep '08
Longtime employee and composite industry veteran Parry Foskett has been promoted to Vice President of Composites at the E.T. Horn Company, a leading distributor, supplier, marketer, and manufacturer of specialty chemicals. The move is intended to strengthen the company's surge in the booming composites marketplace.

Prior to his promotion, Foskett had been vice president of Key Accounts within the company's Advanced Materials Group, where he joined as a Senior Account Manager in 1998. His vision to increase the company's position and performance within the composites category includes having a collaborative relationship with both end users and the principal suppliers.

“Parry's experience, leadership and exemplary track record speak for themselves in terms of his value to our organization,” said Jay Fitzpatrick, V.P. of E.T. Horn's Advanced Materials Group.

“With his vast technical expertise, we believe having him available to work with and support other account managers will improve our group's performance and increase our value to the customer. Additionally, we know our key suppliers like Dow Epoxy, Bayer Polyurethane, Lindau Chemical, and Kamenny Vek will benefit from his ability to spend more executive time with them.”

Despite a relatively soft economy and industrial market slowdown, the Advanced Materials Group has nevertheless maintained steady growth due in part to its focus within the composites industry, which is experiencing double digit growth in many sectors.

“In a situation the global economy is facing today, such as a slowdown in housing starts, many of the traditional industrial-products manufacturers are realizing sluggish sales numbers. Hence, our strategy has been to be proactive and remain focused in providing the newest and most innovative materials for segments such as aerospace, energy, and transportation, where advanced composites will continue to play an ever-increasing import role. These are markets that the E.T. Horn Company has always participated in, but now our focus will be stronger than ever,” Fitzpatrick said.

Since its founding in 1961, the success of E.T. Horn has been, to a large extent, its ability to perform with its supplier principals as a true extension of the supplier, bringing real value to both the end customer and the principal. Foskett relishes the idea to promote this concept.

“The unique business model of E.T. Horn meets the needs of both our customers and our suppliers as we perform an array of functions beyond a traditional specialty chemical distributor,” Foskett said.

“Our strong and long term partnerships with principals and customers go beyond just supply and logistics. We are committed to growth and service on all fronts, utilizing our focused industry experience to promote and commercialize technical solutions for today's and tomorrow's advanced materials challenges. And our commitment is to not only service our customers and suppliers, but to be the bridge of technology that connects our suppliers to solve our customers' needs.”
