With the recruitment of Henry Krause as Technical Director based in Chile, the Polygiene technical organisation is growing to cover the up-and-coming market of South and Central America, as well as the US.

Krause joins the company with a solid background and over 20 years experience in Performance Chemicals and Textiles as an executive both within sales, product development and technical support in corporations such as Sciessent and Nano-tex.

”I’m thrilled of being part of the company with the most recognised brand in the industry when it comes to odor control technologies. The decision was easy when Ulrika asked me to join – the work culture is just fantastic here and I’m looking forward to help Polygiene continue its solid expansion globally”, said Krause.

In his role, the focus will be on both sales and technical support to brand partners in the region, as well as American partners using production facilities in the region.

“I am delighted to get Henry on the team. He has a vast experience of the textile market in this region and he will be instrumental both in regional sales and technical support to the mills and production sites. As Brazil is about to take off with several partners in the pipeline and the US is growing within new segments, the timing is perfect for this addition to the team”, stated Ulrika Björk, CEO of Polygiene.
