HEXAGON EYES MORE SUCCESS WITH BIG EXPANSION PLANSUncategorized
Hexagon Metrology has unveiled a new management team to spearhead a major expansion programme in the UK.
David Brown, Director and General Manager, has appointed Brett Green as Director of Sales and Marketing, Mark Wilding as Director of Operations and Sharon Bagri as Director of Finance and Control.
The top measurement solutions provider has also reorganized its national sales team to accommodate its growing product portfolio and strong order book.
Two Regional Sales Managers, John Drover and Steve Shickell, have been appointed to oversee Hexagons team of Area Sales Managers and Product Line Specialists.
The UK order book has grown by 72 per cent over the last three years and the companys latest quarterly figures have revealed its highest-ever order intake for bridge co-ordinate measuring machines.
The expansion coincides with the roll-out of a multi-million pound investment project in new IT and customer service systems by Hexagons parent company.
Hexagon Metrology UK, which employs 88
people and has an annual turnover of around £20m, has also recently invested in
a new precision centre at Chester and dedicated sub contract measurement
facility at its Telford head office. It will shortly open a new site at Milton
This expansion programme is the culmination of a strategic review which began more than a year ago and represents the latest phase in our goal to become the countrys leading metrology solutions provider, said general manager David Brown.
A dynamic management and sales operation together with a substantial investment in infrastructure and systems demonstrate Hexagons commitment to giving customers the very best metrology products and services, he added.
Meanwhile, the company has won a prestigious award achieved only by the top two per cent of British businesses. It has attained the Investors in People Gold standard after a thorough appraisal by a group of independent auditors.
