Garrett Schrum celebrates 9 months at CAPLINQ as Sales Engineer

I am hap­py to announce that as of Sep­tem­ber 4th, 2021, Gar­rett Schrum cel­e­brat­ed his 9 months anniver­sary with CAPLINQ Amer­i­c­as as Sales Engi­neer. Work­ing out of our offices in Livo­nia, Michi­gan, USA, Gar­rett has and will con­tin­ue to lead our tech­ni­cal sales efforts of our spe­cial­ty chem­i­cals and plas­tics in the Americas.


Announcement comes better late than never!

Though Gar­rett has now been with CAPLINQ for more than 9 months, the COVID-pan­dem­ic made his wel­come announce­ment dif­fi­cult to make with­out being able to trav­el between Europe and the USA. We did­n’t want to let the oppor­tu­ni­ty pass us by how­ev­er and want­ed to at least rec­og­nize his con­tri­bu­tion to the team.

I real­ly enjoy find­ing pat­terns in dif­fer­ent things and have always enjoyed piec­ing togeth­er how parts of a sys­tem work togeth­er. I look for­ward to work­ing with cus­tomers to help them make it all come together.

Gar­rett is our first US employ­ee hav­ing start­ed only 10 days after incor­po­rat­ing as CAPLINQ Amer­i­c­as, Inc. in Detroit, Michi­gan. The expan­sion in the USA comes after our suc­cess­ful track record in Cana­da, Europe and Asia attract­ed both cus­tomers and sup­pli­ers who asked us about our Amer­i­can expan­sion plans.

As the first employ­ee in new com­pa­ny expan­sion dur­ing a glob­al COVID-pan­dem­ic, Gar­rett has had his hands full since the first day. While learn­ing the CAPLINQ prod­uct lines and busi­ness sys­tems, he also was instru­men­tal in get­ting our US office and ware­house set­up and running.

Gar­rett comes to us as a grad­u­ate from the Uni­ver­si­ty of Cincin­nati where he received a Bach­e­lor of Sci­ence in Chem­i­cal Engi­neer­ing. Dur­ing his time at school he com­plet­ed mul­ti­ple co-op terms that gave him an under­stand­ing of process devel­op­ment and spe­cial­ty chemicals.

Gar­rett has lived in many states in the US, includ­ing Geor­gia, dif­fer­ent parts of Ohio and South Car­oli­na. He most recent­ly lived in Michi­gan and will con­tin­ue to live there as he works from the CAPLINQ Amer­i­c­as Inc. office in Livo­nia, MI.

In his free time, Gar­rett enjoys play­ing video games, learn­ing chess, spend­ing time with friends, and dis­cov­er­ing new music.

Garrett to support and serve our American customers

Key to this role will be to sup­port cus­tomers in their prod­uct qual­i­fi­ca­tion process includ­ing mak­ing prod­uct rec­om­men­da­tions and pro­vid­ing tech­ni­cal sup­port in mak­ing these prod­ucts work in cus­tomers’ pro­duc­tion environment.

Orga­ni­za­tion­al­ly, Gar­rett will report to the Glob­al Sales Direc­tor but will inter­act with all depart­ments as he under­stands and imple­ments the tech­nolo­gies that CAPLINQ can offer its customers.

Please join me in wel­com­ing Gar­rett to this new posi­tion (or rather cel­e­brat­ing his nine-month anniver­sary) and wish­ing him a long and suc­cess­ful career with CAPLINQ.
