Micron Group, a leading producer of hand-held and vehicle-mounted sprayers and aerial atomisers, has recently appointed a further four new sales, technical and accountancy staff to support its expansion plans in the UK and Europe.
Toby Whatley, a university graduate with a BSc in agricultural engineering from Harper Adams, joined the company as a Technical Sales Specialist in April 2012. As well as his up-to-date knowledge of the agricultural market and its needs, Toby brings practical understanding of product design and development, aftersales service and technical support. Toby will assist our R&D, Sales and Marketing departments in delivering customers innovative and value-adding products and providing them with technical and sales support.
As part of Micron Group’s strategy to offer market-leading innovative products, the company created two additional R&D positions which have recently been filled by Michael Mills and Martin Botfield. Michael took up the role of a Design Engineer and is responsible for product design, fabrication, technical drawings and documentation. His extensive experience in mechanical design, structural engineering and machining will prove invaluable in his new role.
Martin Botfield was appointed as a Technical Writer/Design Engineer with responsibility for CAD product design, technical illustrations and authoring. Martin is experienced in various aspects of mechanical design and technical documentation to further enhance the varied skill set of Micron’s R&D department.
Last but not least, Charlotte Pash joined the Micron team in April as an Accounts Assistant. Charlotte has an up-to-date MIAB qualification and her role will be to provide assistance in preparing monthly management accounts.
The appointments follow Micron’s recent reorganisation in 2011 in order to enhance the company’s offering and services, during which Graham Thompson, Ausra Landey and Naomi Terry were also employed in the newly created roles of European Sales Manager, Group Marketing Manager and Group Management Accountant respectively.
