ZESTRON's President Dr. Harald Wack Moves to European HQ to Assume Overall Responsibility

Aug 18, 2011

Dr. Harald Wack, president of ZESTRON, the worldwide leading provider of high precision cleaning products and services, has recently moved to the company’s European HQ in Ingolstadt, Germany, to assume the additional responsibility of managing Dr. O.K. Wack Chemie.

Dr. O.K. Wack Chemie, was founded by Harald’s father, Dr. Oskar K. Wack, in 1975 in his garage and quickly became the leading European manufacturer of premium care products for motor vehicles and motorcycles.  After many years of continued expansion in precision surface cleaning, Dr. O.K. Wack Chemie diversified into the electronics cleaning market and established ZESTRON in 1990 with the passing of the Montreal Protocol.  Since then, the company has experienced tremendous growth leading to the inauguration of four Technical Centers worldwide (Ingolstadt, Germany; Manassas, VA; Kulim, Malaysia; Shanghai, China) and thereby the ability to offer globally linked engineering and sales support around the clock. 

“It is an absolute honor and a humbling experience to have the opportunity to lead our family business that my father built from the ground up,” says Dr. Harald Wack. ”ZESTRON has long become more than chemistry. Leveraging our worldwide ZESTRON assets, the company’s R&D and engineering staff services its customer base not only through the development of revolutionary cleaning agents, the implementation of new cleaning processes and process optimizations, but also through extensive research, presentations of white papers, on-site training, workshops, webinars and multiplier collaboration. I look forward to leading the company’s continued growth and expansion in the years to come.”

As part of this organizational change for ZESTRON America, Michael McCutchen has been promoted to Vice President Americas and South Asia and Christine Demetz to Operations Manager while Dr. Harald Wack has assumed the role of president for ZESTRON and Dr. O.K. Wack Chemie. 

Headquartered in Manassas, Virginia and operating in over 35 countries, ZESTRON is the leading global provider of precision cleaning products and services. With the largest team of chemical engineers in the industry, ZESTRON leverages comprehensive capabilities to ensure customers surpass even the most stringent cleaning and vapor recovery requirements.
