Koppers announced John McDonald has joined the company as the new Director of Class 1 Sales for Koppers Railroad Products and Services (RPS) segment.
In this role, McDonald is responsible for managing Koppers expanded rail product portfolio and all aspects of Koppers Class 1 railroad customer relationships. McDonald will work closely with Koppers Carbon Materials and Chemicals and Recovery Resources segments to provide customers with comprehensive and solution-based offerings that maximize revenue and utilization.
Koppers recently worked to fully integrate Koppers Recovery Resources (KRR) as part of the RPS segment to better realize the inherent synergies between the two groups. Combining these businesses allows RPS to move forward with improved efficiencies as an integrated lifecycle solutions provider—from treating ties to responsible management at end of life—offering customers full-service solutions in a sustainable manner.
