Hardev Grewal, President and CEO for Plasmatreat North America

Starting in January 2018 Hardev Grewal has assumed the position of President & CEO for Plasmatreat North America.  Plasmatreat is the global market leader in developing surface treatment solutions with atmospheric and low pressure plasma technology.

Born and raised in Munich, Germany, Hardev got an early exposure to international business during his college education at the University of Applied Science Munich with assignments at technology leader ABB in India and semiconductor equipment manufacturing giant Applied Materials in California.  Realizing his business acumen, Applied Materials sponsored his research work and recruited him to permanently join the company in Silicon Valley where he quickly advanced his career to Director of Global Product Management.

After 16 years in the semiconductor industry, Hardev joined the M+W Group in 2010 to grow their newly acquired subsidiary NSTAR Global Services with developing new product and service solutions.  Soon thereafter he was promoted to Vice President, Global Sales and Business Operations.

In joining Plasmatreat, 47-year-old Hardev continues his presence in Silicon Valley. The company has recently built its largest and most advanced technology center in Hayward, CA.  The newly appointed leader of the North American team is quite familiar with plasma.  “I have been exposed to the technology since my early childhood”, he says, laughing. “My father has been a leading scientist with many patents in the low pressure plasma technology for semiconductor devices”.  The fact that the son now deals with hi-tech atmospheric plasma jets instead of vacuum chambers is a welcomed new challenge.  “The potential for using atmospheric plasma technology in many different industries is nearly unlimited,” Hardev states enthusiastically.  “Combined with a strong and knowledgeable team that I look forward to working with, we will not only hold, but expand our market leadership position in the Americas.”
