ROSENBERG, TEXAS - Anton Damsteek, vice president of sales for Albis Corp. of Rosenberg, is giving up his Western ways, heading for Hong Kong to become a managing director of Albis' office there. Damsteek will report to the Hong Kong office Sept. 1.
Damsteek, a native of the Netherlands, joined Albis in Germany, and transferred to its Texas operation 12 years ago.
He helped to build what was then a trading company into a multifaceted custom and toll compounder that makes and distributes specialty materials, commodity and engineering thermoplastics.
Albis launched its North American compounding operations in 1990.
Damsteek is being replaced in Texas by Harry Meijer, who has held positions in the Netherlands, Canada and Mexico during his 23 years with the company.
