BTU International, Inc., a leading supplier of advanced thermal processing equipment for the electronics manufacturing market, is pleased to announce the appointment of Isaiah Smith as its new regional sales manager. Based out of New England, he will cover the central US, as well as Canada.
With more than a decade of related experience Smith brings to the job the unique perspective of having been a BTU customer in a past role where he had responsibility for the multiple SMT lines as a process engineer. In the past several years Isaiah has held sales roles for related SMT process equipment including, printers and inspection with ITW EAE and Koh Young America.
“Coming from a process engineering role I would only sell equipment that I would select for my own line,” said Smith. “I have to truly believe in the quality and performance of the tool, and BTU’s products most certainly exceed those criteria by far.”
