A Workington engineering firm has made a new appointment to help it grow its international and UK markets.

Craig Marshall has joined McMenon Engineering Services, based on the Salterbeck Industrial Estate, as product development director.

He was previously a flow measurement consultant for 10 years with TUV SUD National Engineering Laboratory.

McMenon is a globally-recognised manufacturer and supplier of flow and temperature measurement instrumentation, has an engineering heritage going back 70 years.

Mr Marshall has been brought on board to develop McMenon products, add new ones and work with clients to solve measurement problems in their operations.

Mr Marshall is a former chairman of the technical committee for the North Sea Flow Measurement Workshop and is chairman of a British Standard Institution committee that develops and reviews flow measurement standards.

Anand Puthran, chief executive, said: “The addition of someone with Craig’s level of expertise is another example of our unrelenting commitment to product quality and customer service. His arrival is a clear reflection of our plans for growth.

“Appointments such as this one are vital as we look to broaden our capability, build successful relationships and deliver across multiple markets. We are delighted to have Craig on board to help achieve our goals.”

Led by Mr Puthran, the business was acquired from ABB in February 2018.

Mr Marshall said: “I’m thrilled to be joining the McMenon team.

“My role is to help to take the business to the next level by looking at how we can develop current and future products and the applications we offer into the market.

"There is huge scope for McMenon to solve complex customer issues due to our one-stop solution capabilities, in-house knowledge and our proactive approach.”
