Thayer Scale, a leading global manufacturer of equipment for the continuous weighing and feeding of bulk materials, announced that Andy Forrester joined the company as vice president of sales and marketing.

Forrester will drive the continued expansion of Thayer Scale's direct and indirect sales channels both in existing markets and in new markets and geographic regions. He will work to strengthen the company's relationships with existing customers in the food, chemical, and energy markets by aligning the company's equipment sales, aftermarket sales, and service activities. He will be based out of the company's headquarters in Pembroke, MA.

"Andy will help Thayer Scale maximize recent investments in engineering and manufacturing," said David Hyer, president.

He also served as the director of sales and marketing at Kice Industries, an engineering and manufacturing company with a focus on dry bulk material handling and dust control solutions. Before that, Forrester assumed numerous marketing and sales positions at Hilti Corp. with an emphasis on the energy and industry segments.
