KIC is pleased to announce the appointment of Miles Moreau to Global Manager – products & technologies. Having been with KIC for more than 25 years, Moreau will use his experience to guide the company’s future technology roadmap, help bring innovation to the product development and ensure customer value-driven product offerings.
The company’s President, Bjorn Dahle, commented, “In Miles, KIC is fortunate to have a person with insight both into the application of products in reflow and wave solder, as well as an understanding of market dynamics, including the Smart Factory trend. Miles is instrumental in securing that KIC’s future technology roadmap will drive customer value. The rapid technology improvements and customers’ needs for more data driven production management are challenging for vendors like us, but they result in significant cost reductions, improved quality and traceability when we get it right. That is why Miles is so important to both our customers and KIC.”
Moreau’s experience from several roles with the company over the years, managing field service, European sales and service, R&D, and recently product management and key accounts, has led to his new position as the global manager of products and technologies. His unique perspective and vast experience in thermal process, based on years of travel and working with worldwide customers, fits perfectly with this new position. A solid technology roadmap and products that meet the needs across global customer base has become critical in the new age of i4.0 manufacturing and necessary to take the company and its customers into the next decade.
Moreau commented on his new position: “Our worldwide customers are very demanding and very good at what they do. Being onsite at our customers’ facilities, and understanding their problems and requirements has supported my work developing new product concepts that bring customer value. With this new role I hope to further leverage that, tying in innovations in manufacturing technologies, to support KIC’s roadmap and maintain our leadership role in solutions relating to thermal processes.”
