Flextraction Ltd, supplier and manufacturer of Local Exhaust Ventilation (LEV) products, has announced that Lee Darton has been appointed Managing Director.
Lee has many years experience in the Fume and Dust Extraction equipment industry and has been with Flextraction for over 12 years as Sales Manager and most recently as General Manager (Products). This promotion comes at a time when the Company continues to further develop its range of products, aiming to increase its market share both in the UK and in Europe.
Wally Gilder, Chairman of Flextraction said: "Lee has played a significant role in the development of this company and has created a fully focussed and committed sales and after sales team. Under his guidance we have seen our market share continue to increase and this appointment comes at a time when the Company is experiencing improved trading conditions and the introduction of a wider product portfolio. It is just reward for all his commitment and endeavours."
Lee said: "Flextraction has a comprehensive range of dust and fume extraction products that cover a multitude of industries, which we continually strive to improve and develop. Our marketing strategy has led to increased order books both from the UK and from new markets in Europe.
Working with the UKTI (UK Trade and Investment) in order to find defined partners in Europe has led to the recent appointment of a distributor in France for our range of Hood Positioning Devices (HPDs). This in turn has resulted in increased production of HPD's at Melton Mowbray.
We are continuing to drive our export business forward and are currently looking at defined partners in Germany and Spain. My appointment as Managing Director will help us take the Company forward as part of our on going marketing and investment strategies, both in the long and short term."
Lee lives in Grantham, Lincolnshire, is married and admits to being an avid Arsenal supporter and a lover of fine foods.
