The Bodo Möller Chemie Group has appointed Christoph Schnöll, Ph.D., to the position of vice president of Technology. He takes over the global responsibility for the technology area, and with it, the strategic focus on products, their applications, and the process technology necessary for them. The group says a future expansion of the laboratory infrastructure in China and the United States is part of the newly created position. The goal of the expansion is to offer worldwide mechanical and aging tests of modern industrial adhesives.
“In the area of modern industrial adhesives, Dr. Christoph Schnöll has in-depth scientific and practical expert knowledge, and he is therefore in the optimal position to keep expanding our technologically unique selling propositions. Our international expansion, coupled with stronger technical expertise, now allows additional customers to master the challenges in the development of new products, and the subsequent production processes, with efficient adhesive technologies from our portfolio,” said Frank Haug, chairman of the board of the Bodo Möller Chemie Group.
While studying at the Technical University of Vienna and at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, Schnöll specialized in the innovative area of polymer chemistry, focusing on acrylate, polyurethane, and epoxy materials. As a chemist at the Technical University of Vienna, Schnöll participated in the research of new epoxy-based light-curing adhesive tapes and molding compounds–two of these developments led to patent applications. Since 2020, he has been working for the Bodo Möller Chemie Group–first as account manager Polymers, and later as technical lead Structural Adhesives.
“We offer our customers high-quality products of leading manufacturers, and in addition, a full technical service from an expert source. In this way, we facilitate a selection process of appropriate product solutions having the highest quality level. Our laboratories that are already operating in two European locations, and those we will also expand internationally are also part of this expertise,” said Schnöll.
