To further strengthen its position in the global water markets, NX Filtration, the global provider of breakthrough direct nanofiltration technology for pure and affordable water, has expanded its global sales team with country managers for the Americas and China.

Tony has extensive experience in water and wastewater treatment technology sectors through his previous roles as Commercial Director and Area Market Director for LG Water Solutions and various key positions at Hydranautics and Suez. Tony will support NX Filtration’s commercial roll-out strategy of its innovative and sustainable direct nanofiltration technology for municipal and industrial applications.

Tony Fuhrman, NX Filtration's new country manager for the Americas, comments: “I am extremely proud to join NX Filtration’s global team with outstanding professional expertise in all aspects of our business. With more than 30 years of experience in water treatment, I am very committed to further drive the roll-out of our unique and breakthrough dNF hollow fiber nanofiltration product into the municipal and industrial markets in North America”.

Shoahua Hu also joined NX Filtration as per 1 May 2022 as country manager for China. He has over 25 years of experience in membranes for water treatment in industrial and municipal markets.

Shoahua Hu, NX Filtration's new country manager for China, comments: “Asia, and particularly China, is facing many water related challenges around growing cities and increased industrial activity. In Northern China, water shortage, surface water pollution and hardness are major challenges. In Eastern and Southern China, industrial pollution and micropollutants pose huge challenges for the environment and drinking water quality. NX Filtration’s hollow fiber nanofiltration membranes can address all such challenges based on its unique sustainable and efficient solution.”
