British food processing equipment manufacturer Fabcon Food Systems (FFS) has prepared for its next phase of global growth with a series of new appointments and promotions. FFS, which manufactures and installs handling and processing equipment for the snacks sector, has bolstered its team on the engineering, sales, logistics and management sides of the business.

Andrew Peek, who co-founded the Norwich-based firm in 2015 with Managing Director Trevor Howard, becomes Operations Director and adds research and design to his engineering, technical and design portfolio.

Andrew’s move to a more strategic position sees Luke Cossey promoted from Senior Design Engineer into a new Engineering Manager role. The company’s leadership team has also seen a further boost with James Bradford becoming Production Manager, moving from his role as Supervisor and Compliance Officer.

In the engineering department Jakub Bak joins as a Mechanical Design Engineer, with Nick Kittle coming on board as Controls Engineer following many years working as a sub-contractor for FFS.

The Fabcon sales department has also been expanded as Adam Harvey joins the team as a Sales Engineer, working closely with new and existing customers.

In further key appointments, Jim Ayre joins as Parts and Logistics Coordinator, in charge of purchasing and managing the stock and materials required for Fabcon’s growing list of orders. Meanwhile, Kevin Wrathall is appointed as Project Manager on a contract basis and will coordinate a variety of UK and global build and installation projects.

Trevor Howard, Managing Director of Fabcon Food Systems:
"We are in a hugely busy but exciting period of growth with orders for our British-built machinery coming in from across the world."

"This means we need more specialists but also an improved management structure to make sure we are giving our customers the best possible service, managing processes well internally, and also being out there developing relationships and winning new business."

"All eight appointments and promotions are fully deserved, and we really do have a first-class team in place as we look towards 2023 and a variety of global projects we have in the pipeline within the snacks industry."
