Senior Management Change At Ishida Europe
Long-serving managing director of Ishida Europe, Graham Clements, is stepping down from his role and handing over the day to day running of the company to the new managing director and former finance director Dave Tiso.

Graham is to remain with the business as chairman to help effect a smooth transfer and will officially retire in May 2016.

“While I am obviously sorry to be relinquishing what has been such an enjoyable and rewarding job over so many years, I know that the business is in good hands with Dave and that he will oversee its continuing success and growth,” comments Graham.

“Dave has gained immense knowledge and experience of Ishida Europe over the past seven years and I am delighted that I will be able to work with him in the next 12 months so that the succession process is completely seamless.”

Graham Clements joined Ishida Europe as managing director designate in January, 1989, becoming managing director one year later. During his 26 years in charge, he has presided over the organic growth of the company from a £10 million multihead weigher supplier to a £120 million integrated packing line equipment business, with a portfolio of machinery which now also includes checkweighers, snacks bagmakers, tray sealers, X-ray inspection systems, seal testers and robotic pick-and-place systems, He also established a manufacturing base for Ishida in the UK, as well as subsidiary offices in France, Germany, Switzerland, the Netherlands, Middle East, Russia, Czech Republic, Romania and South Africa.

A Chartered Accountant from New Zealand, Dave Tiso came to the UK in 1988 to work for Deloittes. He then held senior financial roles in a number of leading multinational companies, including National Grid and Advantica Group, spending time working in Brazil, Chile, the Czech Republic and Poland. He joined Ishida Europe as finance director in 2008.

His global experience has been invaluable in meeting the needs of Ishida Europe’s extensive operations which provide sales and service support throughout Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

“I am honoured to be following Graham and very much looking forward to the challenges of my new role,” says Dave. “We have a fantastic team at Ishida Europe who can offer customers the very best in terms of the equipment we supply and the solutions we devise to meet their particular packaging requirements. This combination, along with a huge support network, provides the ideal platform from which to continue to develop our business.”

JBT Strengthens UK Customer Service Team
Global food processing equipment manufacturer, JBT has expanded its UK customer service division by recruiting five additional engineers at its Broxburn site to support its continually expanding range of freezing and cooking equipment, and increase responsiveness to customer requests.

Gavin O’Malley, Jaspal Rehal, David Johansson, Max Sneddon and Dave Wardle increase the company’s customer service team from eight to 13, and have been carefully selected to ensure JBT is well placed to efficiently address customer requirements across all its product lines.

JBT brands include the world-leading Frigoscandia freezing and chilling systems, the Double D range of high impingement continuous protein ovens and searer/grill-markers, the Stein range of coating and frying equipment, Formcook contact and combi cookers, and DSI slicing and portioning systems.

Jaspal Rehal and Gavin O’Malley are both certified Gas Safe field service engineers. Jaspal was previously an engineer and site supervisor for Solar Energy Warehouse and will be based in Birmingham. Gavin was previously a sub-contractor to British Gas and EON and will be based in Leeds.

David Johansson, Max Sneddon and Dave Wardle are service co-ordinators and will be both office and field-based. Max was previously European technical sales manager for Unitherm Food Systems in Oklahoma, and Foodmek in Scotland. Dave Wardle has come from ICM Ltd where he was installing and maintaining Frigoscandia freezers and will be based in Grimsby. David Johansson joins the UK team from JBT’s European headquarters in Helsingborg, Sweden, where he gained extensive global experience with the Frigoscandia brand.

Stewart Linford, JBT’s west region customer service manager, said: “At JBT we recognise that providing first-rate customer service and support is crucial for our customers’ success. We’ve carefully selected the new engineers as they have impressive credentials, complementary skills and relevant experience. As sales of JBT equipment increase, we need to ensure that our level of technical support matches this. The team has received intensive technical training and will enable us to significantly increase responsiveness to customer repairs and maintenance requests across all our product lines, anywhere in the UK.”

SATO Appoints Tetsushi Kondo As Head of Europe
SATO, a leading global provider of Auto-ID solutions that empower workforces and streamline operations, has appointed Tetsushi Kondo as Head of Europe for the SATO Group.

As head of the region, Mr Kondo will be responsible for driving business in Europe, focusing on providing end-to-end solutions to pan-European customers.

Mr Kondo joined SATO in 2009, when he was tasked with restructuring SATO’s business in Europe. Since that time, he has played a major role in improving operational efficiencies across the region. Mr Kondo has held a variety of positions of increasing responsibility including Managing Director of SATO Germany, and most recently, Managing Director of SATO International Europe.

“Kondo-san has proven to be an amazing asset to our organization,” said Kaz Matsuyama, President & CEO of SATO Holdings. "He took on the monumental task of restructuring our European operations, and delivered excellent results. He knows the market well and I am confident that he will achieve substantial growth in sales in the coming year."

"I am both excited and honoured to take on this expanding role," said Tetsushi Kondo. "There is huge potential for growth in food and retail segments in key markets like France and Germany, we’ve got big plans for healthcare in the UK, and will be expanding our logistics business in Benelux and Eastern Europe. I also look forward to working with our channel partners and distributors across the region in marketing our new NX Series of printers."
