New director appointments pave the way at ETGEast Midlands-based Engineering Technology Group (ETG) (, a leading supplier of machine tools, is predicting a strong second half to 2018 after appointing two new directors.

The company, which employs over 100 people at its headquarters in Wellesbourne, has promoted Steve Brown to sales director and Martin Price to operations director to support ambitious growth plans.

ETG is looking to increase the number of high-end turn-key solutions it sells in the UK, as it targets £35 million of sales by the end of the year.

Managing director Martin Doyle said: “Automotive, aerospace, medical and high-value engineering are thriving in this country, and our clients are increasingly looking to source technology that makes their production process quicker, accurate and more cost-effective.

"Recent visits to Germany gave our experts the opportunity to see how CNC machine tools are moving forward in terms of multi-spindle capability, horizontal machining, new turning features, cutting parameters and built-in automation to encourage the move to ‘lights out’ production.”

Steve Brown has been with ETG for nearly 10 years and has played a major role in creating the current sales team and innovating to win new business.

As sales director, he will have a greater strategic say on the direction the group is moving in and exploring the possibility of new partnerships with machine tool manufacturers and key suppliers.

Joining him on the senior management team as operations director is Martin Price, who has 15 years’ experience of working in every area of the business.

Mr Doyle concluded: “These are two very important promotions for the business, giving us real strength in depth at a senior level.

"They are also a fitting reward for the commitment, passion and hard work that Steve and Martin have put in over the years. and I look forward to working with them to achieve our goals.”
