INDEPENDENCE, OH — SIFCO Applied Surface Concepts (ASC), part of Norman Hay plc, has expanded its R&D team by welcoming new Corrosion Engineer Sarah Mederios.

Mederios’s work, along with SIFCO ASC’s existing R&D team, will be critical in supporting customers to utilize solutions that meet their corrosion-resistance needs. Mederios will also employ her in-depth knowledge of corrosion to evaluate the use of other passivates, ultimately extending the service life of the deposit.

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.
