The Shropshire-based firm, which is part of Filtermist International Ltd, has appointed Carolyn Lee as systems engineer manager to support a concerted move into offering turnkey solutions for customers in the automotive, aerospace, food processing, paper and woodworking sectors.

The combined engineering graduate will bring with her significant experience in managing complex and demanding projects, as well as considerable expertise in health and safety and workplace legislation.

It marks the latest strategic appointment that has seen the dedicated team double to 20 specialists and puts the Telford-based firm in an ideal position to boost sales by 40%.

“This is a very exciting time to be joining Multi-Fan Systems, as an increasing number of companies explore how they can protect and better control their working environment to deliver improved productivity, quality and workplace conditions,” explained Carolyn, who joins the business after spending eight years with one of the UK’s largest car makers.

“The business has evolved into a provider of turnkey solutions, which means we will work with the client from the initial design of the system, right through to specifying the technology, installation, commissioning and then, if required, ongoing support.”

She went on to add: “Clients now want a specialist to manage the entire process, so they can focus on doing what they do best - their core activity. This approach has seen us quote for a host of £multi-million opportunities in the last month alone.

“My time in the automotive sector has given me significant experience of meeting deadlines and working under pressure to deliver exacting performance so this will definitely come in useful. However, the biggest attribute I’m bringing to the table is my expertise in health and safety, ensuring we now take full responsibility for this business-critical element of the project.”
