Approaching one year since the opening of its Space Coast cleanroom, Astro Pak announced that Russ Young has been appointed as the Senior Technical Sales Manager for its Titusville, FL cleanroom facility. Mr. Young officially joined the company in Q1 of 2019. His previous role as Business Development Manager at Swagelok, a manufacturer of gas and fluid systems components, has fostered deep connections with the region’s industries, according to Robert K. Pozil, Senior Vice President of Astro Pak. “Russ brings a wealth of experience and contacts to help bolster the Florida cleanroom’s customer base.”
Mr. Young’s experience in his prior position led him to recommend Astro Pak to his clients for their precision cleaning needs. With recent approvals to perform precision cleaning for ULA and Boeing, Astro Pak is rising up to become a staple link in the space supply chain.
Mr. Pozil praised Mr. Young’s strong relationship with the aerospace firms supporting the Space Coast as well as his close ties in the industrial sector noting, “It is not often that we are fortunate enough to bring on someone with this much experience and familiarity with our services.” For his part, Mr. Young welcomes the opportunities that lie ahead, “I look forward to serving our customer’s unique mission-critical needs, and I am excited for the opportunity to partner in their project and program successes.”
