Voith appoints Scott Knapp as new Vice President of Operations for Voith Paper North America. Knapp has been in this role as Vice President of Operations for the Appleton-based North American headquarters since October of last year, and stressed that a top priority since then is to deliver best-in-industry efficiencies within Voith.
"This is an immediate need for our orders, big or small. Focusing on productivity ultimately means improved service for our customers, and that's a driving focus for me," he said, adding, "We always put our customers first."
Along with his customer focus, Knapp said his study of operational efficiency means collaborating with his team and how they work together to improve processes and remove waste.
Prior to joining Voith, Knapp spent 24 years at SC Johnson & Son in their consumer products division.
The Group Division Voith Paper is part of the Voith Group and a leading full-line supplier as well as pioneer in the paper industry.
