Leading UK-based foundry supplier and manufacturer John Winter has appointed a new Technical Manager, Andrew Tagg, as the company strengthens its research and development arm.
In a newly-created senior role, Andrew Tagg will be responsible for leading the R&D team, helping it enter new foundry markets with innovative product ranges.
Andrew worked with John Winter for 11 years as a Global Technical Consultant, before taking a permanent position at the business as Global Sales Representative in a bid to accelerate its growth.
He will continue to cover global sales, overseeing the USA, India and Middle East markets, as well as areas of Europe, in addition to his research and development role.
He said of his appointment: “By creating this new role at John Winter it is opening a lot of doors into new markets and industries, as we place more of an emphasis on technical advice and applying innovation to what we do. I’m delighted to be helping the company make this substantial move.
“We already have some exciting developments planned, including the introduction of a range of new products later this year.”
Adam Bennett, Sales Director at John Winter added: “The foundry industry is constantly evolving and, with this, the needs of our customers also evolve. Therefore, it is critical we continue to offer new problem-solving products that can offer value.
“We’re expecting some significant changes to the foundry industry, particularly in automotive which will see the next revolution in five to 10 years’ time. We’re gearing up for these changes here at John Winter and appointing Andrew to take on this new role is the next step for us.”
