Apjet, a global leader in atmospheric plasma technology with a focus on textile finishing, headquartered in the US, has announced the appointment of Bentley Park as the company’s new chief executive officer (CEO). Park will replace John Emrich, who has been CEO of Apjet since 2007. Although retiring, Emrich will remain on the company’s board of directors.

Park brings a wealth of knowledge and experience to Apjet at this important time in the company’s evolution from primarily a development company to commercialisation. His experience in leadership roles at a number of companies as president and CEO, coupled with his knowledge in chemical engineering, will add great value to the company. His business background spans broad experience in both the textile and chemical industries, key areas of focus for Apjet.

Emrich took Apjet from a lab-based entity located in Santa Fe, New Mexico, and transitioned it to North Carolina State University in 2009, where he formed an applications development team. That development team created the capability to stabilise atmospheric plasma in a very dense, high-powered form. The team took this breakthrough achievement and then created chemical blends allowing for plasma initiation of chemistry on fabrics for creating post finishing attributes. (GK)
