MD wants to speed up change
12 July 2017
New Castell managing director Neil Webster wants the company to capitalise on its standing in the industrial safety sector by injecting a sense of urgency into how it operates.
“Castell has huge credibility as a brand,” said Neil. “It’s time we took that authority and upped the pace in everything we do: how we communicate with customers, how we develop new products and how we increase our global footprint.
“We’ve got a significant investment plan for the business which will fuel our growth, whether that’s systems-led or directed into NPD. We want to maintain and increase our reputation as the go-to partner for our customers, both for knowledge and solutions.”
Neil joins Castell from TALIS Group, a manufacturer of valves for the water industry. He brings extensive experience of the automation, process control, hazardous area and lighting industries.
