GMC Feedstocks appoints Arnd Thom as Managing Director International Sales and Business Development

July 11, 2016

GMC Feedstocks GmbH, based in Rheinbach, Germany, has announced the appointment of Arnd Thom as Managing Director International Sales and Business Development. GMC stated that Thom is well-known in the Metal Injection Moulding industry from his previous position as Senior Sales Manager at BASF, concentrating on the Catamold business.

Thom will focus on distributing GMC’s products worldwide. Dr Bodo Fink, GMC’s Chief Financial Officer, stated, “It is a great honour that Arnd Thom will join our team. Arnd has an exceptional background in Process Engineering and Powder Injection Moulding, combined with an international sales background. While GMC is concentrating on penetrating European and South American markets, we believe that there are growth opportunities outside of those markets, particularly in Asia and USA.”

Thom added, “I am very excited to join the GMC team. I believe that together we are able to create a strongly competitive platform in Powder Injection Moulding with a holistic approach on ceramic and metal technology. Moreover, our unique approach of combining different binder systems leads to an excellent long term strategy. This includes an intensive technical support of our customers concerning part design, mould making and computer tomography analysis of prototype parts. There is a big opportunity to take our feedstock products and technology to new international markets, which I am quite excited to get working on.”

Thom has had an extensive international sales and business management career with more than fifteen years in the PIM business.

GMC Feedstocks produces feedstocks for Metal Injection Moulding (MIM) and Ceramic Injection Moulding (CIM) based on a variety of binder systems. With more than twenty years of experience in the PIM industry, GMC offers binder systems that can be chosen on the basis of the powders to be used or the requirements of a customer’s equipment. Options include wax-based binders for water and thermal debinding, polyamid based systems for alcohol and thermal debinding and POM based systems for catalytic debinding.
