Hamaton appoints Osmani as North American general manager
Following the establishment of Hamaton Inc. in the US, Hamaton has appointed Enri Osmani, as general manager of the North America business. According to the company, he brings with him “significant depth of experience gained from senior roles which have taken him into both the Automotive aftermarket and OE sectors.”
Based at the new headquarters in Wixom, Michigan, and working closely with the management team of Hamaton Ltd in the UK, he will coordinate the development of Hamaton Inc. which will ensure that Hamaton’s North American customer base will receive valuable field sales, technical, training and product support.
Hamaton Automotive Technology Co. Ltd will also fully open their new OE sensor manufacturing plant in China later this year, which will provide multiple automated sensor production lines as well as a brand new R&D and testing centre. The establishment of Hamaton Inc. to coincide with this recognises the importance of the North American TPMS market to Hamaton and the need to bring essential resources closer to their customers.
Osmani commented: “After being away from the industry for around five months to deal with some family matters, it feels great to be back and starting out as the new general manager of Hamaton Inc. I am very excited for my new role and to have the opportunity to work with Hamaton. They are very well respected within the industry by many distributors, and I look forward to continuing to strengthen these relationships and helping the business grow further.”
Ian Smith, CEO of Hamaton Limited and now Hamaton Inc., stated: “We are delighted to welcome Enri Osmani as the new general manager of Hamaton Inc. for our new Michigan site. With his abundant experience working in the North American TPMS market, he is sure to make a valuable addition to the team. We look forward to working with him in the exciting times ahead.”
