Haskel, a high-pressure pump and valve manufacturer, has undergone a management shake-up and restructure as it sets its sights on “growing global opportunities.”

A press release signalled, “The shake-up is part of Haskel Europe’s repositioning of the business as a global brand, designing and building equipment for industries requiring solutions to high-pressure issues.”

Under the reshuffle, the UK-based branch of the business, which marks its 70th anniversary this year, has appointed Graham Fox as Operations Manager, Stan Carty as Commercial Manager and Guillame Nicolas as Financial Controller.

Every decision will be based on our worldwide presence, such as developing a higher profile in West Africa and the growing hydrogen market

Fox, who previously held the position of Haskel’s Manufacturing Manager since 2008, moves into his new position to oversee the company’s systems whilst Carty aims to increase focus on the distribution of Haskel, BuTech and Firestone products – other brands under the Accudyne Industries umbrella – in building a larger global base for export potential.

Nicolas has relocated from Haskel’s office in Dubai to the UK city of Sunderland where he will become part of the push for the company’s growth of its international business.

He stated, “I am looking forward to playing a key role in the expansion of the business as we ramp up our global contracts and look to the growing markets in areas such as Africa.”

Fox reinforced, “We are looking at markets with a global view. Every decision will be based on our worldwide presence, such as developing a higher profile in West Africa and the growing hydrogen (H2) market.”
