Cortec AppointmentCortec Corporation recently promoted its director of manufacturing, Caleb Pheneger, to the position of chief operations officer (COO). In his new role, Pheneger will be extending his support for projects and operations to Cortec’s Canadian subsidiary Bionetix, in addition to his manufacturing oversight of five Cortec Corporation plants in the United States.

“Caleb’s excellent overall performance is what motivated me to promote him to the position of COO,” said Boris Miksic, Cortec founder and chief executive officer (CEO). “I look forward to seeing him lead us to new levels of growth and continual improvement at Cortec Corporation with his hard work, dedication, and organizational insight. He is one of the most talented chemical engineers I have worked with during my 50 years in the specialty chemical industry manufacturing space, with good understanding of chemical processing, polymer compounding, extrusion, paper-coating technology, and organic synthesis.”
