Airdri Appoints new Group Operations Director

The Airdri Group, a world leader in hand dryer development and elevator systems, has expanded its senior management team, appointing Ken Hattersley as Group Operations Director during a period of significant growth.

Ken will lead, manage and deliver the operations team activities including production, quality, logistics and operational integrity. He will also help grow the business through working closely with engineering and research and development and looking at new market opportunities internationally.

Ken has a wealth of experience in engineering and product development, with a particular global focus. Prior to joining the Airdri Group, he was Director of Hardware Engineering at Frontier Silicon, part of the Toumaz Group, for nine years. His responsibilities included managing and leading the UK, Hong Kong and China engineering resources for developing and manufacturing products.

Asia is a key market for the Airdri Group and it recently opened a new facility in Guangzhou, China as part of a clear strategy to substantially grow its business within the region. This facility will become part of Airdri’s international network, which includes bases in the USA, UK and Germany. Further operations in key markets are under active consideration by the Airdri board.

Ken said: “I am relishing my move to this ambitious and innovative company as it continues to expand globally. I was attracted by the challenge the role offers me, and the drive and enthusiasm of the management team. I’m looking forward to helping introduce new ways of working that will enhance the already excellent levels of service provided.”

Bruce Philipps, Managing Director of Airdri, said: “We are delighted to welcome Ken to the Airdri Group at a very exciting time for the company. As we look to the future, we are firmly placing production design, pricing, quality and customer service at the heart of our operation. This important addition to the board will ensure we deliver in these vital areas.”
