Vesconite appoints Sharon McArdle as marine representative


(CLEVELAND) — Vesconite, a global leader in high-performance polymers, has appointed Sharon McArdle as its new marine representative.

McArdle comes to the position from the industrial side of Vesconite sales and is well-versed in the polymers' performance qualities and specifications. "I welcome the challenge of selling into the marine industry," she said. "From waterski boats to oil tankers, our materials are used in countless applications on board, but especially below the waterline."

Her duties will encompass new business development, sales and customer support. She's currently studying marketing and exporting to better serve the company and its clients. McArdle and company CEO Dr. Jean-Patrick Leger will be at the International WorkBoat Show, Nov. 30-Dec. 2, in New Orleans, booth 2861.

Vesconite manufactures advanced, internally-lubricated polymers widely used in recreational and commercial vessels. They have high load strengths and dimensional stability, and a wear life 10 times that of bronze. Easily machined to +/- 0.001 inch, hollow bar, solid rod and plate shapes are offered in a wide range of dimensions and thicknesses, and are available for immediate shipment from the company's U.S. warehouse.
