People: Perstorp appoints new manager R&D and Innovation
Koen Schwarzer has been appointed as the new manager of R&D and Innovation for feed additives producer Perstorp Performance Additives.
A chemist and microbiologist by trade Mr Schwarzer has been active in research and development of innovative feed additive concepts for over 30 years. Previous functions include R&D management positions at other major feed additive companies.
Mr Schwarzer will be based at Perstorp’s Waspik location in the Netherlands. His responsibilities will include managing the R & D department and developing products and innovative concepts. Mr Schwarzer will lead the search for particular molecules, their activity and the way of application and he will provide technical support for various feed additive product groups.
The new challenge is something Schwarzer looks forward to: “Perstorp is a basic producer of several important raw materials that are used in feed additives. Managing the R&D department of a driven, innovative and focused business unit to support a continuously changing market with new concepts is very appealing”.
Koen Schwarzer will be replacing Marc Kinjet who recently changed positions to business development manager Asia.
