The continued growth and development of the Preformed Windings (PFW) business has led to the decision to appoint a new Operations Director responsible for all operations in both the UK and USA coil manufacturing facilities.
Danny Fox has been appointed Operations Director for Preformed Windings. Danny joined the team at the end of April and will be responsible for the continuous improvement within the branches and maintaining high levels of quality throughout the entire coil manufacturing process.
Danny has over 17 years of experience in the engineering industry and joins us from Sulzer Dowding and Mills where he more recently held the position of General Manager for the coil manufacturing division. Danny’s knowledge within the industry and his focus on maximising operational effectiveness within similar environments will undoubtedly be a positive step for the Preformed Windings business.
To support this growth, we are also pleased to announce that Dave Hardy of Preformed Windings (UK) has now been allocated the position of Vice President, Coil Manufacturing in Pell City, Alabama, reporting directly to Danny Fox. Dave was responsible for setting up the new branch during 2017 and successfully brought it to launch in early 2018. The branch is now fully operational and in a position to successfully service the US market.
Dave joined Preformed Windings in 2014 as Operations Manager for the UK branch, two months after the business was acquired by Parsons Peebles. Dave project managed the move from the old UK facility to the new unit in Rotherham in 2016 which also included the implementation of a new ERP system.
