Press release date: July 17, 2013

Minneapolis, Minn. – MOCON, Inc. (NASDAQ: MOCO) is increasing its emphasis on its package testing business with the addition of a new regional manager for North and South America.

Rich Barrett will be responsible for spearheading sales activities for the company’s MOCON and Dansensor-branded package testing solutions in the Americas. He will be reporting to MOCON’s Denmark-based global business unit head Jesper Bilde.

Earlier in the year, MOCON announced that it was reorganizing the company into four global business units to help address growing customer requirements for food and healthcare applications. The Package Testing division offers quality control and quality assurance solutions for modified atmosphere packaged products as well as other packaging types. The product line also includes headspace analysis instruments (oxygen, carbon dioxide and carbon monoxide), leak detection, package integrity, seal and burst testers, gas mixers as well as in-line gas analysis for packaging machinery.

Barrett brings significant business-to-business experience to the position. His background includes sales, marketing, project management and product development. He has a Masters of Business Administration from the Tippie College of Business, University of Iowa and a Bachelor of Science in agricultural engineering from North Dakota State University.

“Rich is an excellent addition to MOCON’s Package Testing business unit. His background ideally positions him to help customers meet their testing objectives,” said Bilde.

MOCON is a leading provider of instrumentation and consulting and laboratory services to medical, pharmaceutical, food and other industries worldwide. See for more information.
