ACG's Vice President, Europe, Steven Facer

ACG Capsules, one of the largest manufacturers of empty hard capsules (part of the ACG Group), demonstrated its commitment to European expansion by completing a series of appointments across the region.

The announcement follows the appointment of Steven Facer as Vice President, Europe, who was brought in to strengthen the ACG Capsules sales and customer support teams — providing proximity for European customers.

To serve the European market better, ACG will also be investing more in enhancing the capacity of its manufacturing facility in Croatia.

The recent appointments in Western Europe include Wayne Camarco as Sales Manager, UK, Ireland and Scandinavia.

Wayne has been brought in to support existing customers and new business development. He has more than 20 years of experience in the pharmaceutical and fine chemicals industry, first in R&D with Rhone Poulenc in the US and France and later in technical sales for Ashland Specialty Ingredients in the US.

Wayne will report into the Western European team lead, Hans Moxter, who was brought into the business towards the end of 2016.

He commented: "We'd like to welcome Wayne to the team, which has grown significantly during the last year. His experience and contacts will prove invaluable as we continue on our growth trajectory."
