Engineers Mate's success continues to benefit from Higgs' support

 

Article date:  21/04/2017

Another chapter began for a local business success story this week after a new Director joined the board of Engineers Mate to help drive forward the continued development of the Pensnett-based company.

Engineers Mate Ltd., which has distributed engineering products to more than 120 countries, has appointed Rob Beech to join current Directors Jon Head and father and son Chris and Andrew Bowyer. The company seeks to continue its growth, following increased investment.

Rob Beech, who has been working in the engineering sector for over 29 years, comments: "We have some exciting new plans to take the business forward and I am looking forward to helping with the continued growth and development of Engineers Mate for many more years to come"

Engineers Mate began trading in 2012 after Jon Head and Andrew Bowyer formulated the idea of the business through their friendship formed on the cricket pitch. Following the submitting of a business proposal to Andrew's father Chris, the business quickly took off.

The company currently operates from two locations, Pensnett Trading Estate, where it began, and Telford. Each branch distributes engineering products to their local account customers. The Telford Distribution Centre also fulfils its internet business throughout Europe and around the world. Approximately 30 per cent of the company's business is conducted online.

Director Chris Bowyer states: "Rob has had a long successful career in the industry and it is excellent news that someone of his experience and calibre is joining our board. He will help us to consolidate our strong position in the market place and to continue our growth and development for the future."

Jamie Partington, Corporate Associate at Higgs & Sons is pleased to have supported the company on this latest stage of its development. "I have been working with Engineers Mate since advising them on incorporation six years ago. This is another exciting development for the organisation that will enable them to progress even further, and Higgs & Sons is pleased to be supporting them on their successful journey."

In addition to the appointment of Rob and an injection of further investment into the company, plans are afoot for the company to open further branches in the UK.
