US American Ken Zak has been part of the Clean Technology Systems management team since October 2018. He joined Dürr through the acquisition of US environmental technology company Megtec/Universal and subsequently drove the integration of Megtec/Universal together with Dr. Daniel Schmitt. As a result of the named acquisition Dürr has established itself as a world-leading supplier of industrial exhaust-air purification systems. Ken Zak states: “Thanks to the Dürr and Megtec/Universal merger, we have the widest range of exhaust-air purification technology. This benefits our customers. We have global reach and can implement tailor-made solutions for our customers’ specific requirements at any production site around the world.”
The new division head will focus not only on exhaust-air purification and noise reduction technologies but also on the growing business in systems for the coating of battery electrodes. Worldwide demand for high-performance lithium-ion batteries is growing within the automotive industry and other sectors. “We provide effective support to our customers in expanding their production capacity. We are the leading supplier offering solutions for double-sided coating as well as traditional tandem systems and we provide end-to-end solutions including exhaust-air purification and solvent cleaning,” said Ken Zak.
