Dust Control Technology (DCT) has appointed Laura Stiverson as the new President of the company, following her service to the company as General Manager for nearly five years.
Her primary responsibilities will continue to revolve around new product engineering, business development and customer service. She is described by CEO Edwin Peterson as “uniquely qualified in experience and temperament to lead the firm in exploring new markets, services and equipment designs.”
Stiverson has been cited as instrumental in developing a number of the company’s products, including the OdorBoss® family of machines and the very successful new Fusion™ equipment design.
“Laura has been taking us in new directions for some time,” Peterson observed. “And we felt it was appropriate that her energy and passion be formally recognised.”
Incorporated in 2004, DCT has earned its reputation as a leading supplier of open-area dust suppression equipment, and engineers continue to develop atomised mist technologies to bring new levels of effectiveness and versatility to dust and odour management.
“It’s a natural pairing of mechanical and chemical technologies,” Stiverson said. “We’ve demonstrated that the equipment design is far more effective than commonly-used approaches to odour control, and our goal now in expanding our line of additives is to combine product efficacy with the highest level of environmental stewardship.”
“During the course of growing our dust control business, we have encountered a variety of opportunities to expand our scope,” Stiverson continued. “These opportunities have largely been a result of repeated inquiries from businesses that had an unmet need within their industries,” she added. “Over time, we have become more of a solutions provider, with the expertise to address a much wider range of applications. These new business segments are growing far beyond our initial expectations."
