Saint-Gobain Industrial Ceramics, which operates the North American refractories business for Compagnie de Saint-Gobain, has restructured its North American marketing and sales organization for Energy Systems, based in Worcester, Mass. Kevin Paskale, application engineer, now has responsibility for sales to the gas turbine market and certain petrochemical accounts. Wade Taber, application engineer, is responsible for design and sales assistance for the gasification business, including direct sales from Worcester of chrome-alumina refractories for the coal gasification market made by the company's Savoie Refractaires division in France. Robert Jones and Joseph Ouellet, both refractory sales specialists, will continue to provide sales and refractory installation support to the waste-to-energy and coal-fired power markets. Engineering and production support for these markets is coordinated with the Saint-Gobain Industrial Ceramics businesses based in Dusseldorf, Germany; Barcelona, Spain; and Rainford, England.
