James Wright Appointed New Vice President and General Manager of Ensinger Building Products NA

Ensinger Building Products, a subsidiary of Ensinger Group in Germany, has announced the appointment of James Wright as the new Vice President and General Manager of Ensinger Building Products NA (North America). Mr. Wright succeeds former Vice President and General Manager Bruce Tichenor, who has retired after a highly successful eight year tenure overseeing growth and expansion of Ensinger Building Product’s proprietary insulbar thermal barrier insulating technology for window, door and facade construction in North America.

As the new VP/General Manager, Mr. Wright  draws on more than twelve years experience in sales, operations management, process improvement and business finance in the chemical industry to will be responsible for sales and production of insulbar at Ensinger’s production facility in Grenloch, NJ.

Mr. Wright stated “The window markets in North and South America are growing steadily with metal frames particularly in demand because they are highly durable and low maintenance.” “However, metal is very conductive thermal and this is where insulbar excels through an insulating profile that combines low thermal conductivity with outstanding stability and excellent workability.” “ With energy codes for windows and doors becoming more stringent in the Americas, insulbar allows architects, contractors, and window/door manufacturers to achieve improved thermal performance without compromise.”

James Wright is from Wilmington, DE, where he lives with his fiancé. He holds a BS in Mechanical Engineering from the University of Pittsburgh and an MBA from the Wharton School, University of Pennsylvania. In his spare time he loves to travel and enjoys cooking and running.
