Flo-Mech just announced a major company expansion with the building of Flo-Mech House #2. Building work will commence in June and the purpose built office will house our Energy &Sustainability, Health &Safety and Service departments, as well as a dedicated R&D/demo lab for machinery trials and testing.
Flo-Mech’s Energy &Sustainability department is also expanding rapidly and in May 2010 recruited a dedicated Energy &Sustainability Engineer, Allan Balata, to work alongside our Dr Francois Pierrel in helping our customers to tackle their Energy &Sustainability challenges. Allan’s wealth of energy optimisation experience gained through previous roles at McKinnon &Clarke and Tate &Lyle is a great asset to the company. The growth of our Energy &Sustainability department is set to continue as more and more customers seek to utilise our expertise in reducing operating costs and reduce their carbon footprint.
The Flo-Mech Engineering department has also seen a few changes in recent months with the addition of 2 new Project Engineers to demonstrate our commitment to our customer’s growing demands. Leigh Robinson joined the Project Engineering team in November 2010, bringing with him an ‘end-users’ perspective, having previously been a Project Engineer in his home country of Australia for an international snacks producer. Phil Blackwell joined Flo-Mech in January 2011 and is a highly qualified Project Engineer with over 10 years food industry experience.
