New operational board of directors at Mills CNC

Added to MTDCNC by Mills CNC Ltd on 09 June 2014

Succession plan implemented by Mills CNC will deliver sustainable and profitable growth, and improved customer service.

Mills CNC, the exclusive distributor of Doosan machine tools in the UK and Ireland, has announced that carefully-prepared succession plans to ensure long-term sustainability and its continued growth in the future have been put into effect, and that these will be implemented by a new Operational Board of Directors led by new Managing Director, Paul Hooper-Keeley, that has taken over the management and running of the company.

Mills’ Nick Frampton (previous Managing Director) and Andrew Jack (previous Technical Director) both retain a shareholding in the company and remain as consultants to ensure continuity of service and support to customers and partners during the transition.

Says Nick Frampton:

'With 2014 half-year sales turnover figures expected to exceed £35M for the first time in the company’s history (some 25% up on the same period last year), and through a range of recent customer focused investments made over the last 12 months at our Campus facility in Leamington - Mills CNC, widely-recognised as one of the most progressive in the machine tool sector is in a strong position, primed and ready for the next phase in its illustrious 42 year history.'

The new Operational Board of Director responsible for overseeing and implementing the company’s strategic plans comprises existing Directors and senior managers at Mills.

Managing Director, Paul Hooper-Keeley (previously Finance Director) is joined by senior managers - Nick White, Kevin Gilbert and Tony Dale - who have been appointed Sales Director, Operations Director and Technical Director, respectively.

Continuity at Board level is completed with Adam Attwood continuing as Chairman and Non-Executive Director – a role he has occupied at Mills for the last six years.

Says Managing Director, Paul Hooper-Keeley:

'These are exciting times for Mills’ employees and our customers.

'The impressive growth we have experienced over recent years, and the ambitious plans we have for the future, have necessitated a strategic change in the way we organise ourselves and run the business.

'The composition of the new Operational Board of Director does this - and more accurately reflects the importance and inter-relationship between machine tool sales, customer service and technical support.

'The key message to customers is that we at Mills are passionate about customer service and are dedicated to delivering first-class machine tools and manufacturing solutions, and providing world-class support.

'Our principles, values and business approach based on integrity, respect and commitment to meeting and exceeding our customers’ requirements remain as strong in the new structure as they ever were in the past...and that’s why I am confident about the future.'
