An industrial filter specialist has strengthened its worldwide growth plans with six key promotions.
Amazon Filters says the new roles and responsibilities are designed to bolster strategic leadership as it continues to target critical industries reliant on process filtration.
The move complements a £1 million (€1.12 million) capital investment programme involving new production facilities, equipment and warehousing at its Camberley, Surrey, manufacturing base.
Neil Pizzey, Amazon Filters’ managing director, said: “These well-deserved multiple promotions reflect the talent, dedication and knowledge of our team.
“Most are long-standing colleagues with tried and tested track records of excellent service.
“Each plays a vital part in helping us achieve our company purpose to ‘creatively solve problems and be a great place to work that our people are proud of’.
In the 38-year-old firm’s engineering department, Matt Fidler has been promoted to manufacturing engineering manager.
In parallel, Kris Stobieniecki has been promoted to technical manager with full responsibility for the development of products, processes and equipment in the meltblown filter production area.
Also on the engineering and technical support side, both Mihai Holban and Gracjan Stasik have been promoted to manufacturing engineers. Their appointments recognise increasing levels of responsibility and commitment as customer needs have evolved in recent years.
In the human resources team, Heather Winter is now lead HR business partner, a role in which she will apply insight from having worked across many operational activities within the HR function. At the same time, former HR manager Ruth Pappadakis steps up to become head of people and culture.
UK moves included Dean Wilson joining as procurement manager and Dan O’Sullivan taking on an expanded remit in the housing component team.
Elsewhere, Amazon Filters hired new, on-the-ground business development managers in both the Americas and Asia-Pacific regions and appointed further partners and distributors to pursue sales growth in these territories.
