Trulite Glass & Aluminum Solutions, LLC has appointed Paul Schmitz as its new CEO, as of 2 January 2013.

Most recently, Schmitz led ThermaSys Corp. where he was responsible for driving growth in sales and earnings across seven operating divisions. This was accomplished through the implementation of lean manufacturing principles, consistent kaizen events and an intense focus on customer responsiveness.
“Paul’s accomplishments as an executive along with his management experience give him invaluable perspective. He is a proven leader and we are pleased to welcome him to the Trulite team,” said Mike Alger, group CFO at Sun Capital.
“I’m excited to join Trulite and look forward to the opportunity of growing the business through achievement of real operational excellence,” said Schmitz.
