Mappi North America has hired Joseph J. Santelli to sell its tempering furnaces and laminating equipment for the United States and Canada, excluding the far western regions of both countries.

Santelli had previously sold tempering equipment for 15 years before starting his own tempering operation, according to a company release.

“Mappi makes incredible equipment and I am very proud and excited to represent them,” he says.

Mappi also recently opened a new office and warehouse in North Carolina.
