Cefla North America, a leading supplier of surface enhancement technologies in the USA and Canada, has added a new position to its finishing laboratory team. Samuel Mask has been promoted to Lab Application Technician. He started his time with Cefla North America as a Lab Intern in October 2019. The team has expanded in preparation for increased lab testing, facility events, and equipment upgrades that will take place in 2021.
Since 2019, Mask has shadowed Mike Lowe, Lab Manager, and Senior Lab Technician Benny Smith, who have a combined 47 years of experience in finishing and digital printing industries. Mask’s training has also included instruction from Technical Director Lorenzo Pavone, Cefla’s senior technical expert in North America. Pavone personally oversees the company’s largest and most complex North American finishing installations. Mask’s position will provide additional coverage to daily lab activities surrounding customer testing as well as product research and development.
“Sam has a bright future,” states Managing Director Massimo Di Russo. “His attention to detail, technical abilities and personal interests make him a great fit for the role. Although Sam is not new to Cefla, we could not be happier to have him join the team in a permanent capacity.”
