Eton Systems, which supplies unit production systems to the apparel industry, has appointed Mr Per Bringle to the position of North American area manager.

A 13-year veteran at Eton's world headquarters, Bringle will assume responsibility for North American operations, including planning, marketing, business development, sales, and customer service activities across the region.

The company says the move supports its growth in core North America markets such as apparel, military gear and home fashions and should also help it expand into new manufacturing market segments.
