FPE appoints industry experts to lead new vision
Posted on August 2016
Specialist engineering firm FPE Global is targeting growth following significant investment in its infrastructure as well as appointing a number of sector experts to drive the business forward.
The expansion of the team at the company’s Manchester headquarters will provide wider and more added value services to FPE’s customers allowing them to increase market share in five core industrial sectors, including specialist materials handling, food and beverage, pet foods, detergents and chemicals and renewables.
This will support the company’s vision to become a global leader in providing bulk materials handling solutions, which is being led by Dave Cooper, who was appointed Chief Executive earlier this year. Since joining, Dave’s focus has been on aligning the organisations resources with the new strategy in order to better service the target markets identified on a global scale.
The company, which was backed by private equity firm NorthEdge Capital in 2014, has already doubled its 2015 order intake during 2016 and is now on track to achieve sales of £16m by the end of 2017.
David Cooper, Chief Executive at FPE Global, said: “Following the introduction of our new strategy, and subsequent investment in the business infrastructure, we are now in a much stronger position to provide greater value added services to our customers. We have significantly strengthened FPE’s position by doubling our sales team and placing industry experts in key sectors who can provide solutions for customers on a global scale. This, coupled with our new purpose built factory and test facility, will allow us to provide a truly world class service to our customers.
“With market leading people in place across all areas of the business, including manufacturing, product development and testing, coupled with a strong management team, our customers will receive best in class service.”
