OAKDALE, Pa. ― (March 25, 2015) ― Nicholas Kelly joined TIGG February 26 as the company’s new inside sales representative. With a background in chemistry, Kelly is positioned to assist current and future clients to find the most appropriate solutions for their vapor and liquid purification applications using activated carbon and other media.
“My previous experience as a lab technician has helped me understand the theory of how activated carbon adsorbs organic contaminants from air and water,” Kelly said. “Additionally, my interpersonal skills allow me to assist customers and understand their unique needs.”
As part of his TIGG training, Kelly spent his first few days on the job loading activated carbon into purification vessels. He also spent time in the field at a spent media vessel changeout. And, he got hands-on training on the various types of vessels in the company’s inventory. He then received instruction from TIGG’s activated carbon expert on vessel and application design parameters and adsorbent and media selection crucial to recommending the most appropriate solution to clients.
Before he became a TIGG employee, Kelly worked as a chemical technician at a lab where he completed performance and compositional testing on paint and industrial coatings. He acquired his laboratory skills while earning a bachelor of science degree from the University of Pittsburgh in 2012.
“We are excited to have Nick working for us in a technical capacity,” said TIGG General Manager Anthony Mazzoni. “I’m sure our clients will appreciate his enthusiasm and passion for the industry.”
