The Business:QIN Srl develops, manufactures, and markets piston rings for O.E. manufacturers of 4 stroke large bore engines for marine, industrial and power generation applications.
QIN Srl acquired Industriale Srl in 2007 with its production facilities in Genova, Italy. This also encompassed technical know-how, patents, and expertise, as well as chrome ceramic and plasma coating plants and the casting competencies. They have since started their own foundry in Cuorgnè (Torino), Italy, for an integrated and vertical business.
The business were keen to take advantage of international opportunities but were lacking a proactive international sales team. Therefore, they were looking to recruit an International Sales Director who could lead a new team and help the business achieve their ambitious growth targets.
