NOXMAT GmbH, based in Oederan, Saxony, Germany, has founded a US subsidiary at the end of 2022. NOXMAT USA, Inc, in Sterling Heights, Michigan, will support US customers as well as European customers with branches in the US with immediate effect. Under the leadership of the new Business Development Manager, the sales and service team in the US will be established gradually and expanded.
The share of US business in NOXMAT's total sales figures has risen steadily in recent years. Due to the continuing high demand of US customers for innovative, state-of-the-art heating solutions and burner technology "made in Germany", the decision was made to drive further growth with a separate company for sales and service.
NOXMAT contact persons on site in the US will provide even more presence on the market and further improve customer orientation.

"We are very pleased that we were able to win Zach Spraggins as an experienced manager for NOXMAT USA. With his extensive market and industry knowledge as well as contacts in the field of heat treatment, he will shape the development and expansion of our US business with great success", Matthias Wolf, CEO NOXMAT, is convinced.
