Eric Kritzer

Eric Kritzer

My name is Eric Kritzer and I’m a chemical engineer from Stevens Institute of Technology. I’m primarily interested in production, process safety management, and manufacturing. I am participating in “My Summer with Sika“ with Matt Bowman by touring job sites and Sika plants across the United States in order to interview customers and document product usage. Through this opportunity I hope to learn about Construction and Industry products, as well as hear our partner’s feedback firsthand. Matt and I are recording interviews, taking pictures, and constructing blog posts that can be used to better understand the needs of Construction and Industry players.

Matt Bowman

Hello All! My name is Matt Bowman. I am from Gillette, New Jersey and have not driven for longer than 4 hours in a car during one sitting. However, that is all changing because I am traveling thousands of miles within two months, visiting tons of different Sika job sites and meeting hundreds of new people along the way. I graduated from the University of Scranton in 2015 with a degree in Marketing. I am soaking in as much as possible on the trip, whether it is about Sika products, sales, or the operations side of the company. Throughout the trip my co-worker Eric and I are capturing our journey through pictures, videos, and blogs. Stay tuned…
