Thermotec Plastics, Ltd. has announced the appointment of Ian Thurman to the position of Managing Director. In addition to the this new appointment, the company expects further staff additions due to a combination of grant funding to increase the company’s production capabilities and new, recently won contracts.
Thurman joined Thermotec in 2006 as Finance Director, he took on the added responsibility for Operations in 2013 and has been an integral part of the company’s steady growth in recent years. In his new role as Managing Director, he is responsible for all aspects of the Birmingham business and will continue to oversee Finance.
Michael McDonough, Chairman, Thermotec Plastics comments, “I am pleased that Ian Thurman has now stepped in to the position of Managing Director. He knows this business inside and out, and his strong leadership will ensure that our customers remain as they always have been – our top priority.”
Mr Thurman kicked off his new role by inviting over 30 fellow MD’s from some of the region’s top manufacturing and engineering firms to attend a breakfast networking event and factory tour. The event, organised with Made in the Midlands, allowed Ian to introduce himself and showcase the many capabilities that Thermotec Plastics has to offer within the sector.
Charles Addison, Chief Operating Officer, Made in the Midlands said: “It’s fantastic to hear of Ian’s appointment, and the factory tour gave a great insight into the offering of Thermotec Plastics which I know our members found extremely interesting. We look forward to working closely with Thermotec Plastics again in the near future.”
Thermotec Plastics will be showcasing their services at the Made in the Midlands Manufacturing Exhibition on the 14th May at GTG Training & Conference Centre, Wolverhampton. Find them on Stand 9.
