In addition, Mark will oversee the work of the Engineering and Technical departments, that focuses on continual plant improvements and stream lining efficiencies.
With a degree in Engineering and Business Studies, Mark has been in manufacturing and processing for over 25 years, having worked in the automotive, cable making and aerospace industries.

The sophisticated manufacturing processes and technology at the various plants around the country, and in particular at Queensferry, impress me, as does the high level of expertise I have witnessed at the company already.
“I am looking forward to being a part of this positive team and having the opportunity to benchmark with other group company sites that use the same manufacturing processes, in order to push Queensferry forward.”
