MILTON, NY, January 25, 2007, Sono-Tek Corporation (OTC BB: SOTK) announced that it had appointed Dr. Joseph Riemer as Vice President of Engineering, on January 23, 2007. Dr. Riemer holds a Ph.D. in Food Science and Technology from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), focusing on food technology, food chemistry, biochemical analysis, and food microbiology. His experience includes 7 years with Pfizer in its Adams Confectionary Division, where he was Director, Global Operations Development. Dr. Riemer has also held leading positions with several food, food ingredients, and personal care products companies. He has served in the capacities of research and development, operations, and general management. Prior to joining Sono-Tek, he was a management consultant serving clients in the food, biotech and pharmaceutical industries.
In his new position, Dr. Riemer will be responsible for the growing engineering team at Sono-Tek, and for leading Sono-Tek in the development of new business in the food technology area. Many food production processes involve the use of traditional spray nozzles to apply low dose antimicrobial agents to both food products and food packaging and containers, as well as nutriceutical coatings directly on foods. Many of these applications would benefit from Sono-Tek’s ultrasonic atomization and Nanotechnology capabilities. Sono-Tek has helped numerous clients in reducing the amount of liquid material required by reducing overspray, with the additional benefit of producing thinner, more precisely controlled coatings of greater uniformity. These technological advantages of Sono-Tek systems provide Sono-Tek’s customers both cost and environmental benefits over traditional spraying and coating systems.
According to Dr. Christopher L. Coccio, Sono-Tek’s CEO and President, “The addition of Dr. Riemer to our team is a continuation of our efforts and willingness to put in place resources that could lead to significant growth of the business over the next several years”.
