Sono-Tek Corporation (OTC BB: SOTK) is pleased to announce that Bennett Bruntil, Regional Sales Manager and Marketing Brand Manager for Sono-Tek since 2007, was promoted to strategic business unit director of the Electronics & Advanced Energy (E&AE) Division, effective March 2016. In his new role, Bruntil will oversee the sales, marketing and new product development efforts worldwide in applications for the E&AE strategic business unit.
The E&AE division services customers with ultrasonic coating equipment used in the manufacturing of semiconductors (photolithography), printed circuit boards, fuel cells, solar cells, advanced batteries and nanotechnology applications involving electrically conductive layers. As strategic business unit director, Bruntil will manage the spray fluxing product line, including a recently introduced fluxing system used in the solder brazing industry – SonoBraze – as well as directing future product developments for coating systems used in the electronics industry.
Steve Harshbarger, Sono-Tek’s President, commented, “Bennett was an obvious choice for the position of E&AE director. He has a strong technical background in ultrasonic coating equipment with a proven track record to expand sales through aggressive marketing, strategic relationship building and expansion of distribution channels. He will take a leading role in our planned new product introductions in 2016 and 2017.”
Sono-Tek is the world leader in the development and application of liquid ultrasonic atomization technology into nozzle systems and spraying and coating application systems. Compared to conventional pressure spraying methods, the company’s ultrasonic nozzles do not clog, reduce liquid usage, waste, and environmental impact while achieving much more precise, uniform, thin film coatings. Sono-Tek is continually developing new applications for its unique technology, replacing wasteful practices in a world that is growing ever more environmentally sensitive.
