Haskel has announced two senior appointments. Graham Fox is now site lead for Haskel Sunderland and Jeff Sill is the new sales director for Europe, Middle East, India and Africa.
Graham Fox has been with Haskel for 10 years. In that time he has taken various management roles in quality, engineering, continuous improvement and operations, before being appointed to his most recent post as site lead.
Jeff Sill will be focusing sales in the oil and gas, agriculture, defence and aerospace sectors for Haskel, Butech and Williams product lines.
He joined Haskel from IDEX Corporation, USA, where he had been director of commercial operations for Europe, Oceania, Russia and Africa.
Graham Fox is looking forward to his new role. He said: “I’ve seen many changes during my decade at Haskel, particularly in the last year. Our parent company, Accudyne Industries, has made significant investments in the Sunderland site which have made a real difference to our position in the global market.
“We want to continue the success in the hydrogen sector and continue to build on our already well-established position in oil and gas, aerospace and automotive sectors. The growing globalisation of Haskel and other Accudyne products means that we are entering a number of new countries and new industry sectors which will only go to strengthen our position in the market.
“We have a fantastic workforce at Sunderland, who underpin all our achievements over many years. It’s an exciting time to be at Haskel, especially with the new global contracts and growth plans. This gives us a great platform to begin 2019 on a sound footing.”
Jeff Sill is also enthusiastic about progress in 2019. He said: “The rapidly growing globalisation of Haskel Butech and Williams means that we are entering a number of new countries and new industry sectors. I look forward to meeting new and well-established customers as well as developing the talent pool we possess to drive growth across Europe, Africa and the Middle East.”
Haskel is a recognised global leader in the production of very high pressure pumps, valves, fittings and tubing for the defence, space, nuclear and other energy sectors.
