Powder Characterisation Specialist appoints Product Manager to strengthen support across Central Europe

Oct 08 2013

Powder characterisation specialist, Freeman Technology, has expanded its global team with the appointment of Patrick van Barneveld to the new role of Product Manager for Central Europe.  Operating from Almelo, The Netherlands, Patrick will establish a direct company presence in the region to strengthen local support in a number of countries including Austria, Germany, Switzerland and Poland.

Born in The Netherlands and educated in the Department of Pharmacy & Pharmacology at the University of Bath, UK, Patrick has broad academic and commercial experience. His career has taken him through management information systems in academia and senior community manager roles for software publishing houses to specialised consultancy within the pharmaceutical industry. Here he has worked with both new drug and generic manufacturers and a number of analytical equipment companies.

“At Freeman Technology we are committed to establishing an effective global network that provides the very best local support to customers through and beyond the initial purchase,” said Tim Freeman, MD. “Freeman Technology Inc is flourishing in the US and we have a strong distributor network across Asia. Patrick’s appointment extends our strategy of local focus into Central Europe and he brings extremely valuable experience and expertise to the team.”

Freeman Technology is a global leader in the development and application of powder characterisation techniques to solve processing problems.   The company’s FT4 Powder Rheometer® is a universal powder tester that enables the measurement of shear, bulk and dynamic powder properties and has proven track record in R&D, QC and process troubleshooting. A key part of Patrick van Barneveld’s role will be to extend awareness of the FT4 Powder Rheometer across Central Europe, helping powder processors to understand the value it can deliver. In this role he will work with and be fully supported by the team at Freeman Technology head office in Tewkesbury, UK.
