Thermal processing and metals coating specialist Wallwork Heat Treatment (Bury) has strengthened its customer support with the promotion of Howard Maher to sales manager and the appointment of Ian Lacey as business development manager. The company is currently experiencing unprecedented growth in business from aerospace, automotive, motor sport, oil and gas, engineering and commercial markets.
Howard will be directly responsible for high value commercial and aerospace key accounts and for the management and motivation of the sales team. Ian will be responsible for the southern half of the UK, looking after aerospace and non-ferrous business development.
Howard has spent most of the last 20 years with Wallwork including shop floor operations in all departments, laboratory and quality control. After a brief period in the motor trade he re-joined the company in 2004 as a sales engineer.
Ian has spent his entire career in the heat treatment business. A trained metallurgist and Fellow of the Institute of Cast Metal Engineers, he also holds an MBA. Experienced in ferrous and non-ferrous thermal processing, Ian joins Wallwork at a period of investment and expansion. Their first non-ferrous heat treatment furnace is soon to enter service at Bury and a further high capacity, four tonne, vacuum thermal processing unit is on order for their Birmingham plant.
“As a business with extensive aerospace accreditations we operate as a batch processor at the specialist end of the market where quality, compliance and service are crucial. Howard and Ian have the depth of experience that is essential to win and maintain customer confidence,” commented sales director Simeon Collins.
