Powder characterization 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, van Barneveld 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, van Barneveld 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 specialized 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, managing director. “Freeman Technology Inc. is flourishing in the U.S., 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 characterization 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 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.
