Avocet's designer appointment
Avocet Hardware has appointed Paul Collins as its product design and implementation manager.
The Brighouse-based business, which recently announced a further £2.1million investment from its owners, the Jain family, created the position in order to boost the company's product development capabilities at a time when it is pushing to firmly re-establish its position as the leading player in the home window and door security market.
Dr T. Jain, a director of Avocet, said: "Product design and development is a vital element of our strategy to position Avocet at the forefront the market and Paul's extensive industry experience placed him head and shoulders above any other candidate."
Collins, 51, from Halifax, has worked in the hardware industry since 1984, when he joined Colchester-based Titon Hardware as a design draftsman. He spent 13-years as a design engineer with Avocet from 1992 to 2005 prior to leaving for a technical field engineer's role in Peterborough with IFI.
Commenting on his appointment, he said: "I'm delighted to be re-joining Avocet at such an exciting time for the company."
"The Jain's involvement in the business, both in terms of their investment and day-to-day input, has created an exciting environment in which I'm looking forward to being challenged on a daily basis."
