Norwich-based Fabcon Food Systems, one of Europe’s leading food processing equipment manufacturers, has strengthened its engineering team with the appointment of a respected project manager.
Engineering projects expert Michael Pye has joined Fabcon’s 24-strong team – taking on the management of a variety of projects in the company’s UK, European, African and Middle Eastern markets.
A key specialist in the development and installation of the firm’s snack production systems, Pye, 52, will work closely with third-party contractors, equipment suppliers and designers – also supporting customers with production scheduling and capacity planning.
Trevor Howard, managing director of the Norwich-headquartered company, said: “To have someone with Michael’s credentials here at Fabcon is tremendous for us and he will play an important role in our expansion.
“His knowledge and experience is already benefiting our customers as we work with them to design and install a variety of new systems and machinery which meet their needs.
“Michael is a perfect fit for Fabcon. His reputation is second to none and he is exactly the type of person we want as part of our leadership and technical teams.”
Michael Pye added: “Fabcon is establishing itself as an innovative manufacturer and supplier of production machinery to the food industry. I am delighted to be part of the team and to have the opportunity to play a role in the company’s ongoing success.
“With clients across the world it is a really exciting time for me, especially to be working with such a wide variety of customers both in Europe and further afield.”
