RSC Bio Solutions expands team to meet growing lubricants global demand

RSC Bio Solutions, based in Indian Trail, North Carolina, U.S.A., announced that it is expanding its team in several key geographic areas, as well as expanded distribution coverage. Hideki Tominga and Alhareth Shahen are joining as business development managers, Thomas Ka-Lok To is joining as a technical business consultant, and Miranda Lo and Cherl Minot are coming on board in customer support functions. David Simpson has been promoted to lead global business development activities for the marine and offshore division.

“We are proud to be playing a leadership role in developing innovative solutions to address the accelerating challenges heavy equipment and maritime operators face today,” said Mike Guggenheimer, president and CEO of RSC Bio Solutions. “As we respond to growing demand, we are expanding our team in key regions with an extremely talented group that brings deep technical and market knowledge, which is essential to our business model.”

As part of the overall expansion effort, RSC Bio Solutions is significantly increasing its distribution and supply chain coverage in EMEA and APAC. The business had relied on a single global marine distribution and sales partner but recently shifted its strategy to team with strong regional distributor partners, increase its own stock levels in key hubs, and dramatically advance its overall technical support capabilities directly with end users to better meet the accelerating demand.

“Over nearly four decades of experience delivering PAO and synthetic hydrocarbon related technologies, we have developed a reputation for technical and product expertise,” said Guggenheimer. “We have found a sweet spot between ensuring we have extremely high levels of technical and delivery service while maintaining a direct connection with the users of our technology.  Our partners increasingly are relying on RSC Bio Solutions personnel to develop strategic roadmaps to mitigate risk and plan for a future where sustainability is no longer optional.”

RSC Bio Solutions is a portfolio company of Blumenthal Holdings and a global leader in sustainable technology for marine and industrial markets with four decades of experience in the most demanding applications.  The company is committed to helping global operators reduce environmental risk, increase uptime, and chart a path to a more sustainable future with technologies that rival the performance and compatibility of the best petroleum-based products.  For more information, visit
