Luxfer Gas Cylinders has appointed Nick Herbert as Europe Sales Director as the Nottingham-based company targets ambitious growth plans on the continent in the coming years.
Herbert said, “Luxfer really is Nottingham’s best kept secret, tucked away in Colwick, and when I saw the role, it ticked so many boxes. Before joining Luxfer, I didn’t have an appreciation of the scale and diversity of the gas cylinder industry, nor did I realise that the hydrogen economy, from a transportation perspective, is as dynamic as it is.
