Aulton continues to build on his nearly 35-year career at SUN. When he first joined SUN, he worked within the engineering department and was a key contributor to many innovative designs. In 2013, Aulton was recruited into the sales department where he held numerous positions, most recently as Global Products and Business Development Manager. In his new role, he will manage the rapidly growing SUN625 product line while closely working with the SUN Sales and Engineering teams, using the voice of the customer to determine the best ways to enhance RDC development.

“Eric’s diverse experience in Sales and Engineering has allowed him to achieve great success in his prior roles supporting integrated and independent operations alike,” says Chris Kyger, President, SUN Automation Group. “His focus on continuous improvement and dedication to the voice of the customer gives us utmost confidence in his ability to further grow the SUN625 product line.”

Casella, who came to SUN with extensive experience in sales and service at a major OEM supplier, is responsible for providing technical expertise to the Sales team. His expertise is key for customers to feel confident making the large capital investment in the equipment of the SUN625 RDC, LMC and PARA product lines. Casella began his career at SUN in 2016 as Capital and International Projects Manager and later was promoted to Global Products and Business Development Manager.

“Rob’s vast experience, knowledge, and work ethic over the past 20 years has prepared him for his new role,” said Greg Jones, Executive Vice President, SUN Automation Group. “He is a valuable asset not only to our sales team, but also and perhaps most importantly, to our customers. We are excited to see Rob continue to bring value to the corrugated industry for years to come.”
