BARCELONA—Lehigh Technologies has hired Anton de Castro as the latest member of its commercial sales and marketing team in Spain.
De Castro joins Lluis Molina and Josep Freixas, who joined Lehigh in 2016 as the original members of its Spanish commercial sales team.
Along with Molina and Freixas, de Castro will be responsible for market and sales development of Lehigh's micronized rubber powder (MRP) lines, Lehigh said in a press release.
Before joining Lehigh, de Castro worked for Mankiewicz Gebr. & Co. He also was a group product manager at the protective coatings firm Hempel A/S.
Lehigh has been part of Michelin's High Technology Materials business section since the tire maker acquired the specialty chemicals firm last year. Lehigh Spain is a joint venture between Lehigh and the Spanish environmental firm Hera Holding.
