Team building at Kommerling

Kommerling UK has strengthened its team with two key appointments.

Lee Foulkes has been made general manager for the company’s manufacturing operations in Preston, while Dr Andrew Carr has been named technology manager.

Dr Andrew Carr will work with Dr Norbert Scott, who is based at the company’s German headquarters, on developing the direction of future product developments. He will also have day-to-day responsibility for R&D, quality control and technical services and will work closely with Lee to ensure close collaboration between the technical and sales teams.

Lee said, ‘I am delighted to have been appointed general manager at Preston. I have a good knowledge and understanding of Kommerling’s product and the organisation and look forward to helping the team in Preston to make the most of being part of this truly international and well respected organisation.’

Dr Carr added, ‘Now is an exciting time to join the company as we seek to build on the current product offering to meet the future demands of our customers. I’m looking forward to combining my knowledge of polymers and synthetic rubbers with Kommerling’s bonding expertise and making the most of the opportunities for new product development.’
