Aquionics Announces New VP Technology Paul Ropic
UV disinfection specialist Aquionics has promoted Municipal Sales Manager Paul Ropic to Vice President of Technology. The move accommodates the company’s recent growth in UV-C LED disinfection technology.
In his new position, Ropic will work closely with Aquionics sister companies Hanovia and Berson to coordinate new product research and development efforts. He will also lead the expansion of Aquionics’ product portfolio, including the UV-Pearl, the world’s first UV-C LED disinfection system.
“Recent events including the introduction of breakthrough technology like UV-C LEDs, our move to a new facility, and our full pipeline of new product developments require strong technical oversight that Paul is very capable to provide,” said Aquionics President Oliver Lawal.
Ropic has almost two decades of experience in UV disinfection. He joined Aquionics in January 2012 as Municipal Sales Manager. Prior to that, he held a number of senior technical and commercial positions with another major UV manufacturer. Ropic is registered as a Chartered Engineer by the Institution of Electrical Engineers (IEE) and holds a Bachelor of Science Degree in Engineering from Salford University (Manchester, UK).
