With some of the tools for KÖMMERLING 70 now up and running for profine UK, the company has introduced Neil Stuart as the new quality manager for the business and he brings with him over 25 years industry experience from another UK systems house.
Neil’s introduction also coincides with the expansion of the quality control and management function to seven in total, with four quality control shift operatives, a further day-based role and a QC inspector. Robust manufacturing procedures and processes are already in place, as administered by the production department from the profine Group’s Pirmasens site. Yet the new team are expanding this methodology to the newly acquired brands in the form of Evolve, Legend and Warmcore.
‘It’s been a busy start to my career at profine UK’ explains Neil, ‘The first week was about recruiting the right staff and subsequently we’re setting the bar high in terms of quality and in adopting a pro-active culture of quality. This new facility for us is and will remain one that produces the best products, as is the profine and KÖMMERLING way.’
Andrew Charlesworth, head of technical for profine UK, added: ‘We’re thrilled with the introduction of Neil and the new team. We’ve already invested in cutting edge measurement systems that’s used by us in Germany and by the likes of Greiner in Austria. With the resources of the group behind us, we’re looking to make this facility one of the most important in the UK and within profine as a group.’
