As we all know, 2019 is proving a challenge, with many external factors trying their best to derail the UK manufacturing resurgence. Whilst we have a record number of projects in the pipeline, these factors are clearly making people nervous about pushing buttons. Fortunately, we’ve received some tremendous large machine orders from multi-site companies, which will enable us to complete the year positively.
This newsletter features a number of case studies that help to demonstrate our ability to supply customers with a complete manufacturing solution. Negri Bossi is quite unique, having their own ‘sister’ automation equipment manufacturer, Sytrama. We also have UK staff dedicated to the project management of sophisticated automation solutions, and our highly trained engineers are all fully conversant with the Sytrama product range.
I’d like to take this opportunity to welcome Matthew Holyoake to our team. Matt arrives with a fantastic pedigree, having served successfully for many years at one of our highly respected competitors. Initially, Matt will join us as National Sales Manager and will also be helping us fill a gap in the South of the UK. Ultimately the plan is for Matt to take over as General Manager in 2020.
We’re all looking forward to the K-Show next month, and I’m particularly keen to see the latest addition to our new NOVA range, the s600T model. The small footprint and large tie bar spacing of this range will give our customers more flexibility than anything else on the market. I hope to welcome many of you onto our stand.
I want to thank our customers for their continued support, which I hope we repay with excellent machines and outstanding service support.
Alan Dodds, General Manager
