Pressac Communications has expanded its team with six new appointments as part of an ongoing recruitment drive.

The new hires include Paul Mallinson as electronic assembly process engineer, Adam Bruce as process & development engineer, Keith Smith as industrial engineer, Clare Leek as marketing manager, Gerrit Willemsen as sales administration and export manager and Jan Tyszka as customer logistics coordinator.

Paul joined Pressac in April and is responsible for implementing and maintaining operational control in all aspects of the electronic printed circuit board (PCB) assembly process. Adam, with a background in product management, will maintain and optimise the circuit processing machinery, Surface Mount machine technology and support new product introductions (NPI), such as the smart repeater, while Keith comes with experience of work study engineering in manufacturing and will review production schedules, engineering specifications, production labour costs and process flows to continuously improve systems and manufacturing activities.

Clare Leek has been appointed as Pressac’s new marketing manager from a senior role at Eon and will plan and deliver integrated content marketing programmes, targeted campaigns and create materials and tools to support sales and growth. Gerrit and Jan join with experience in import & export account management and customer service and will manage client relationships with existing and new accounts, continuing the excellent customer service Pressac customers have become accustomed to.

Peter Burbidge, managing director at Pressac, says: “It is a very exciting time for us at Pressac and we are extremely pleased to welcome all our new team members. As a manufacturing business we have diversified our offer from mass production of Telecoms Network points and automotive parts into developing smart building sensor technology solutions. With our new hires we are strengthening our team to support the roll out of several new products and services over the coming months, as well as meeting the needs of our current and future customers.

“Given the technical nature of what we do and the relatively new market for smart building IoT technology, we often find it very difficult to recruit specialist skills locally. We’ve had CVs from Dorset, which isn’t easily commutable! We are impressed with the calibre and experience of our new starters and look forward to what we can achieve together.”
