Forel has hired Afam Ike, a sales and service manager with experience in the glass business, to improve its presence in Africa. Ike has been working in the glass machinery trade in African countries for more than 25 years and has developed a deep knowledge of the most important local glass factories and their markets, according to the company.
“I joined the glass industry in 1993 and have worked in the different areas of this business,” says Ike. “My experience covers the whole of Africa as I was at different times manager of business development, sales manager, regional director for Africa and managing director of after sales services. I’m very glad to join the Forel team. I really appreciate their commitment, their machinery and their business philosophy.”
