In anticipation of expected growth in countries such as Malaysia, Indonesia, Thailand, Singapore, Vietnam and the Philippines, Murrieta, Calif.-based Cryoquip Inc. has planned a strategy to increase its sales and marketing focus in this region.

As a part of the plan, the company named Joel Maclou as the sales manager for this region. He will be responsible for all product sales to this region as well as the Middle East and the countries of Korea, Taiwan and Japan.

It is anticipated that Maclou will increase Cryoquip’s visibility and market share as well as sustain existing business in the industrial gas sector. To accomplish these goals, he will build a team of specialized multi-product sales engineers, based mainly in the Malaysian office, where he will be located. The team will also provide locally based technical support to existing customers in the region.
