SIFCO ASC expands R&D team by welcoming Corrosion Engineer

Sarah Mederios

World leading supplier of selective plating technology and solutions, SIFCO Applied Surface Concepts (ASC), part of Norman Hay plc, has expanded its R&D team by welcoming new Corrosion Engineer, Sarah Mederios.

With the global cost of corrosion – a problem that affects every industry – estimated to be $2.5 trillion, Sarah’s work, along with SIFCO ASC’s existing R&D team, will be critical in supporting customers to utilise solutions which meet their corrosion resistance needs. Alongside this, Sarah will employ her in-depth knowledge of corrosion to evaluate the use of other passivates, ultimately extending the service life of the deposit.

Sarah earned her Bachelor of Science in Corrosion Engineering with a minor in Business Essentials from the University of Akron in Ohio. She developed her industry experience during her time researching in an engineering co-op with the Lubrizol Corporation on industrial coatings and resins.

SIFCO ASC’s Group Managing Director, Lee Shelton, said: “We’re delighted to have Sarah on board as a new member of our team. She plays a key role in the future plans for SIFCO ASC. Sarah has a great deal of experience in corrosion and has already begun to visit customers to understand their specific corrosion challenges and assess how the SIFCO Process® would meet their requirements.

“It’s this proactiveness, combined with her expert knowledge, which positions Sarah as our in-house expert on corrosion, making her a perfect addition to the business.”
