We are pleased to announce the addition of Andy Piotter as Director of Sales, Tissue & Towel.

Piotter has been in the conveyor industry for over 30 years with experience spanning engineering, sales and custom engineered solutions for packaging. He was a member of the group that founded PHC in 2007 and went on to start a similar venture known as CPW in 2012.

We view adding Andy to the team as a sign of our commitment to providing exemplary service to the Tissue & Towel Industry and providing impeccably engineered solutions for the most difficult manufacturing challenges”.

Piotter will be based at PHC’s main office in Appleton, WI and focus on accelerating innovation in custom equipment design. PHC recently launched the versatile, high speed Vantage Caser Case Packer and has expanded its robotic offerings across several applications and markets. Piotter will focus his attention on optimizing these applications for the Tissue & Towel Market.

“I truly enjoy finding solutions and helping customers with their specific challenges - always believing that there must be a way to do it - make the impossible possible,” said Piotter.

Having previously worked at PHC, Piotter is well-versed in the company’s ethos of integrity and client service. He stated, “In returning to PHC, there is a great comfort in knowing the products and most of the staff. The company is loaded with talented people committed to designing the equipment or solution that our customers need.”
