This follows an increase in companies using insulating composites in electrical infrastructure, it said.
Kloster reportedly has an background in products and systems for electric power distribution, working for corporations such as ABB and Schneider Electric.
“Throughout my career, I have been the communication link between customers, sales, and R&D personnel,” she said. “This is something I’d like to continue at Exel, allowing us to more effectively collaborate with customers to find the best composite solution for their electrical applications. These may be fiber glass insulating rods for low, medium, and high-voltage applications like electrical arrestors, insulating rings for electric motors, or insulating rail joints enabling proper function of railway signaling systems.”
Exel produces long-spooled carbon fiber composites for electrical conductor cores, and glass fiber insulating rods for low, medium, and high-voltage applications, such as electrical arrestors, overhead rod insulators, transformers, and line posts.
“The electrical market is of great strategic importance to Exel, and Heini’s experience in electrical engineering and sales makes her an asset to the global team,” said Olli Teva, SVP marketing and sales.
