GN is growing!

GN Thermoforming Equipment, a leading manufacturer of servo-driven, roll-fed thermoforming machines for the production of plastic packaging, announced last week the appointment of a new Area Sales Manager, Mr. Alberto Capodicasa.

Based in Nova Scotia, Alberto, a native of Venezuela and fluent in English, Spanish and Italian, has many years of experience in various sales positions, most recently as Regional Sales Manager with LED Roadway Lighting LTD. “We are thrilled to add Alberto to our sales and marketing team. Alberto will travel extensively and work on the ground with our local agencies in the Mexican, Central and South American markets. GN has a lot of Thermoforming machines in the region and Alberto is well equipped to support our agents and customers as we continue to grow.”, said Paul Phillips, GN’s Sales & Marketing Manager.

GN’s vision for expansion is happening on many levels by adding key strategic staff in various company departments as well as increasing capacity and further developing its line of equipment.

The GN580, the newest model in GN’s line of Thermoformers launched at K2019, has been very well received by the market. “We have responded to countless inquiries and have sold multiple units since the show last fall with many more deals currently being negotiated” reported Phillips.

“We have also been busy developing another new GN Thermoformer model which we plan to launch at the upcoming NPE in the spring of 2021. We continue building success with our customers”, added Phillips.

The company’s operation also includes a Technical Service and Sales Center in Jihlava, Czech Republic. GN has exported its equipment to 70 countries over the past 40 years.
