Hampton, SC — Coastal Technologies, Inc. USA (CTI), a worldwide provider of high-quality industrial mist eliminators, coalescors, and separation solutions, is pleased to announce the appointment of John Louis Peeples III as a Sales and Project Management professional dedicated to the expanding global market.

Most recently, while located at facilities in Munich and Bristol, he was Vice President International for Baldor Electric with responsibility for all worldwide sales and production outside of North America.
