Ellesco promotes its General Manager Mr Guy Newton to Managing Director

Ellesco promotes its General Manager Mr Guy Newton to Managing Director

Added to MTDCNC by MTDCNC on 07 July 2014

Deburring, Finishing and Polishing specialists Ellesco has now promoted its General Manager Mr Guy Newton to the post of Managing Director, effective from the 1st July 2014.

The promotion to Managing Director is a strategic decision that will enable Mr Newton to continue his vision of modernisation, streamlining and business growth for the Christchurch business. Simultaneously, business owner Mr Vincent Simonis will be afforded more time away from the day to day running of the business to focus upon a long term strategic vision for growth. Being relieved from the day-to-day running of the company, Mr Simonis is now relishing the freedom to develop the robotic, subcontract and consumable divisions of the company whilst reviewing opportunities for expanding into new facilities and setting up a dedicated Timesavers demonstration suite.

As the UK dealers for the world's leading deburring and surface finishing machine tools such as Timesavers, Kuhlmeyer, Autopulit and Sugino; Ellesco has implemented numerous new systems to enhance the sales and service operation since the appointment of Mr Newton as General Manager in 2013. Commenting upon the new posting, Mr Newton says: 'By supporting Vincent in his vision to explore new avenues whilst implementing new technologies and methods, we have witnessed considerable growth in all aspects of the business through 2013-14.

Our new and refurbished machine sales have increased and our consumable business is exponentially expanding, which is no surprise with over 2,500 machine installations in the UK. Our aim for 2014 is to take Ellesco from a 14 employee business to upwards 20 staff. This increase in staff, in both sales and servicing departments will enable us to sustainably grow the business whilst maintaining our outstanding reputation for service and support.'
