Seymour adds to senior team

Telford, UK: Thermal insulation maker Seymour Manufacturing International has restructured its senior team as it prepares to launch new products.

Kirsty Murrell (pictured) is now operations manager and health and safety officer; Ross Clarke has been appointed business development manager; and Chris Davies is now sales manager – with particular responsibility for SMI business in Ireland.

Gemma Elsmore-Roberts’ accounts role has been expanded to include quality officer, due to the immense amount of work involved with ISO compliance, and Matt Weaver has been recognised as warehouse engineer.

Jill Seymour, managing director, Seymour Manufacturing International, said: “This is going to be an important year for the company as we expand our range with innovative new products.

“The success achieved in the past two years has enabled us to modernise and adapt our manufacturing facilities.”

“We hope to be launching a new product for the agricultural sector which we believe has huge potential and cost savings, and are currently trialling a new Tempro thermal cover for supermarket freezers which has so far been very well received.”

Tempro is SMI’s thermal insulation material that can cut energy loss by up to 60%, depending on the product and its working environment, the company says.

SMI’s Tempro thermal insulation and its Cold-Stop curtains and Back-Stop range are in the running for the Technological Breakthrough – Innovation of the Year award at the 2023 Cold Chain Sustainability Awards.
