McIntosh will be responsible for leading AP Emissions across all of its business units, including AP Emissions in Goldsboro, North Carolina; CATCO/Aristo in Hobart, Indiana; and Eastern Catalytic in Langhorne, Pennsylvania.
The announcement was made by Mike Barto, president and chief operating officer at APC, who noted that McIntosh has been with the company since 2015 and was previously vice president/general manager of its CATCO Catalytic Converters and Aristo Intelligent Catalyst Technologies operations in Hobart.
