Cranberry Township, Pa. — Pelletron Corp., a manufacturer of pneumatic resin conveying systems, has a new president: Peter Birk.
Birk is a former vice president of global operations at IPEG Inc., which bought Pelletron in 2017. IPEG also owns plastics auxiliary equipment maker Conair Group. Birk left Cranberry Township-based IPEG in May, joining automotive supplier Mahle Group.
The change was effective Oct. 26. A company spokesman said Birk will bring stability and strong leadership to the organization.
Pelletron is based in Lancester, Pa. The company makes pressure-driven conveying systems that suppliers use to move very high volumes of resin.
