18 March 2009
Stratford-upon-Avon based Tappex Thread Inserts and its sister company Pressavon have appointed Andrew Fitzpatrick as their new sales and marketing manager on the retirement of Peter Rush at the end of March.
“The specialist fastener market is very important to us, both in Europe and globally,” said Tim Barnsdale, Managing Director. “This is reflected by our continued investment in both our people and products. We are not only committed to delivering a high quality product, but also to backing this up with excellent customer service. We need experienced professionals to further develop our business strategy, for the longer term, across all relevant Industrial sectors.
“With a background in mechanical engineering, and over 27 years experience in the automotive and aerospace industries, Andrew is well qualified to lead our sales and marketing team. His career includes positions in new product development, regional sales and key-account management, his last role being UK/EIRE manager for Arnold Umformtechnik GmbH, who are a medium sized fastening solutions company within the Wurth Industrial Group, previously having been with Textron Engineering Inc. Having worked for both medium and large international companies, Andrew is well aware of the requirements of serving multi-industry and cultural customers especially across Europe.”
“The management team at Tappex is very experienced and committed to providing well engineered product solutions, having been in the Industry for over 50 years”, comments Andrew Fitzpatrick. “I am looking forward to being part of the management team and continuing to develop both directly and via our extensive network of technical distributors and overseas agents alike, the business programmes well executed by my predecessor, Peter Rush.
“I will be working on further developing both the region’s market for Tappex and ensuring continued success for Pressavon in the very challenging times that we face. We will be looking at developing existing and building new relationships in other niche markets as well.”
