SP-High Modulus Relocates its Asia Pacific Head Office and Announces Key Management Changes

Septemebr 24 2012

SP-High Modulus, the marine business of Gurit, a specialist manufacturer and supplier of composite materials and structural engineering services, officially opened its new Asia Pacific head office and manufacturing facility in Auckland.

The modern purpose-built 1650 sqm building accommodates SP-High Modulus’ southern hemisphere-based structural engineers, B3 SmartPac designers, administrative and sales staff, and warehouse and production teams. From this facility, SP-High Modulus, the marine business of Gurit, manages its activities in the Asia Pacific region, with additional sales and technical representatives in Australia, SE Asia and China. The new facility, along with SP-High Modulus’ increased focus on the wider Asia Pacific region, will enable customers to more easily access this unrivalled product range and technical know-how. As well as the marine sector, the SP-High Modulus team services all customers outside of the primary Gurit business units, which are marketed under the Gurit brand: Wind Energy, Transportation and Tooling.

Leading the sales and customer service teams, in his new role as Head of Sales Asia Pacific, is Sean Jeffery, who joined the company twelve years ago. Sean has been involved with the marine industry, both professionally and personally, for many years, and is well known to the company’s NZ and Pacific Islands customer base. As well as managing the NZ sales team for the past four years, he has also personally managed a number of key accounts, including America’s Cup syndicates and Volvo Ocean Race teams. Sean is now responsible for the wider Asia Pacific sales team and customer base, which includes NZ, SE Asia and Australia, and he passes the NZ sales management baton to David Joughin. Sean’s passion for the marine sector and his depth of knowledge of composite materials will be of great benefit to the sales teams and the customers in the region.
