Piotr Pawlicki has been newly appointed as a manager at Omsk Carbon Group (OCG) in the USA. In this role his main responsibility will be increasing sales in conjunction with improving customer service for customers in North America, and he will also oversee logistics, accounting and HR management.
“I view the North American project as a challenge, which will inspire me. I am familiar with the chemical industry, but working in totally new cultural and legal conditions will be interesting,” said Pawlicki.
Omsk Carbon USA aims to sell 20,000 metric tons of carbon black in North America in 2016 and double that in 2017.
Meanwhile, during 2015 and 2016 OCG has been under constant cost pressure, caused by the difference between the changes in prices based on formulas agreed on with its customers and the changes in the actual prices for raw materials. Therefore the company has had to increase its prices for all carbon blacks.
