Fairfield-based MG America, a leading supplier of European-crafted processing, packaging, inspection and material, on Thursday said it hired longtime equipment sales and maintenance professional Toby Spohn as a regional sales manager for its Processing Division.
In this role, Spohn will be responsible for relationship building and sales efforts for the company’s portfolio of capsule filling, material handling and checkweighing equipment. He will concentrate largely on the Midwest and West Coast areas.
Spohn was with his previous employer, prominent pharmaceutical manufacturer Mylan Inc. of Morgantown, West Virginia, for more than 25 years. There, he served a variety of roles, including positions with key project maintenance oversight for capsule filling.
“Toby’s extensive experience in pharmaceutical manufacturing — particularly pertaining to processing equipment — will serve him well here,” Claudio Radossi, president of MG America, said. “His years executing and overseeing high-leverage manufacturing and equipment maintenance projects will give him unique perspective on our customers’ real-world production scenarios, as well as their evolving needs.”
