PLZ Aeroscience Corporation (PLZ) has appointed Aaron M. Erter as the new president and CEO.
The aerosol and liquid product manufacturing firm said Erter has proven leadership experience and a successful track record of growing manufacturing businesses. He succeeds Ed Byczynski, who served as the company’s president and CEO since 2009.
Erter joins PLZ from the Sherwin Williams Company, where he most recently served as president of its Performance Coatings Group. Previously, he held various senior roles at The Valspar Corporation, which was acquired by Sherwin Williams in 2017, and Stanley Black & Decker, where he was instrumental in expanding and strengthening the company’s distribution channels.
“I am honoured to join PLZ as the company strengthens its position as the leading speciality aerosol and liquid manufacturer in North America,” said Erter. “PLZ continues to differentiate itself in the marketplace through value-added customer partnerships, outstanding operational and technical excellence, and unmatched end-to-end customer service.
“I look forward to leading PLZ’s talented team as we continue to grow our company and deliver for our customers.”
John Ferring, chairman of PLZ, said: “PLZ is focused on accelerating its growth strategy by pursuing add-on acquisitions, strengthening its capabilities, and expanding into new end markets.
“I am confident Aaron is the right leader to guide PLZ into its next chapter, and I am delighted to welcome him to the PLZ family.”
