Saxlund International - a major player in the bulk solids handling and storage industry - has appointed a new junior engineer to join its team of technology experts in the drive to develop UK and overseas markets.
Salisbury-based Colin Macalpine joins the engineering team at the Southampton-headquartered business, and will be responsible for the design of the high quality products that have kept Saxlund International at the forefront of its field. Saxlund International is part of the Opcon group and operates in global markets from offices in the UK, Sweden and Germany and employs around 150 employees.
Saxlund's reputation for reliable and solid materials handling equipment comes with an impressive track record of constructing 3,500 installations worldwide over the past 60 years and including more than 100 cement plants. The UK operation is leading the focus on serving the global cement industry and the market for alternative fuel systems.
"This is a very exciting opportunity for me; joining a company that is one of the major players in its field on an international level. My previous experience has certainly put me in good stead for the challenges ahead and I look forward to contributing to the growing success of the business alongside my own personal development and working on large scale projects across all our specialist sectors," said Macalpin.
"Our achievements at Saxlund come only as a result of the talented people that work with us and the culture we have established. Colin joins us from a strong background in design and manufacturing, and we are confident he will add great value to our business. We hope to learn as much from him as he will learn from us," added Matt Drew, managing director of Saxlund International.
Operating globally, Saxlund has extensive experience in the design, manufacturing and installation of high quality equipment of first class specification, construction and performance in the bulk materials handling and biomass industries.
