Pittsburgh, PA, April 4, 2001 - Angstrom Sciences announces the appointment of a new sales and marketing team to lead the company into the twenty-first century. Dr. Mark Wilson has recently joined the company as Vice President. Wilson’s immediate responsibilities are the development and implementation of a strategic marketing plan and refining Angstrom’s world-wide sales activity. His previous experience in high technology sales and marketing are at DuPont, Balzers, Inficon, Intermagnetics General, Solid State Measurements and Bruker. “Mark’s extensive sales and marketing experience will help us identify market opportunities where our superior magnetron technology can solve the most demanding sputtering problems,” said Mark A.
