The Derbyshire-based sliding-headstock lathe supplier Star Micronics GB (www.stargb.com
) appointed Dan Pinder as its new area sales manager covering the South East of England.
His most recent employment comprised several years selling high-end Japanese cutting tools for an established UK supplier; before that, he worked for nearly a decade in a production role for a reputable Kent-based sub-contract manufacturer that served the aerospace, oil and gas, defence and communications industries.
Mr Pinder’s role will involve supporting existing customers with new projects and machine investments, as well as expanding Star GB’s customer base in the region by helping prospective users “realise the production advantages of sliding-head technology”.
Stephen Totty, Star GB’s managing director, said: “Star has built a solid reputation in Great Britain, not only for the sliding-headstock technology we offer but also for the knowledge, dedication and passion of our employees.
“Our objective in sales is to help customers understand how to best utilise our machinery to increase productivity, reduce cycle times, be more competitive and develop their businesses by expanding their capabilities.
“I believe our sales team comprises some of the best problem-solvers in the industry, and I am delighted to welcome Dan to the team.”
Star GB’s Open House (8-10 October) welcomes visitors from across the UK and Ireland and will give engineers the opportunity to meet the sales, service and applications teams. Mr Pinder will be present throughout the event.
