MONTREAL, April 4, 2023 – NJM, a ProMach product brand, announces the appointment of Rich Orrell to the position of Regional Sales Manager for the Midwestern United States. Orrell is responsible for bringing NJM’s packaging systems, including those from Dara Pharma, Cremer and Steelco, to pharmaceutical, nutraceutical, medical device, personal care and other manufacturers and contract packers throughout this region.
“NJM is positioned to fulfill all our customers’ packaging line needs by providing world-class equipment, seamless integration and a single point of contact for planning, installation and aftermarket support. Plus, we’ve recently expanded our parts and service department to offer even faster response times,” said Mark Laroche, Vice President of Sales for NJM. “We’re very picky when selecting people for our sales team, so we’re beyond thrilled to have found Rich. He’s deeply familiar with the aseptic packaging market and is a valuable asset to our customers.”
Orrell brings 20 years of experience in pharmaceutical and biotech packaging sales and consulting. Most recently, he owned and operated RLM Consulting, working with pharma and biotech manufacturers on aseptic fill/finish applications. Prior to that, he was Regional Sales Manager for ABEC and Director of Sales at PRI Bio. Orrell holds a bachelor’s degree from Bethel College and a master’s from Biola University.
“It’s truly an honor to join such a high caliber supplier. Offering everything from standalone equipment to cellular lines to fully-integrated, turnkey systems, NJM’s wide range of best-in-class processing and packaging solutions is unique in our industry,” said Orrell. “Not to mention, I get to go home and tell my kids that Daddy is improving people’s lives – because that’s what NJM does every single day by helping market leaders manufacture and package the safest and most reliable life-changing products.”
Orrell takes over the Midwest U.S. territory – including Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana, Kansas, Kentucky, Michigan, Ohio, Oklahoma and West Virginia – that was previously supported by Frank Whites, who retired last year after more than 20 years with NJM.
