UK manufacturer of catalytic converters, DPFs and front pipes, BM Catalysts, has appointed David Chester as its new purchasing manager.
With 12 years’ experience in UK manufacturing, Chester’s main objectives will be to ensure all BM Catalysts’ production requirements are met to fulfil orders, guaranteeing availability of parts, as well as identifying savings to deliver value to customers, without compromising on quality.
Enthusiastic about his new role and the expertise he can bring to the company, Chester said: “Through family ties I have a strong affinity with the automotive industry, having been involved with garages and cars all my life. I am looking forward to putting my manufacturing knowledge to good use and help BM Catalysts continue to thrive in the automotive aftermarket.
“From the moment I met the team, I instantly knew that I wanted to work with them, as there is a clear difference in culture between BM Catalysts and many other businesses. They were all very welcoming and the vast experience within the team means everyone is keen to improve and build upon past success. I will strive to play a key part in helping to uphold these values of continuous improvement.”
Commercial director at BM Catalysts, Mark Blinston, added: “Despite the challenging times, there has always been a clear insistence upon quality and availability at BM Catalysts and our team works hard to achieve this. We’re delighted to have David on board as his experience and expertise will help us to continue to deliver a high level of service to our partners, whilst also delivering value.”
BM Catalysts has recently opened an additional UK production plant, as part of the company’s ongoing investment to meet customer demand.
The purposely developed facility, based in Stoke, will enable BM Catalysts to increase its manufacturing capacity, highlighting the company’s ethos of continual investment in its supply of products to UK and European markets.
BM Catalysts’ manufacturing and warehouse facilities allow the company to maintain stock levels of up to 60,000 parts, covering 90 percent of the European car parc, while also developing up to 300 new to range parts each year.Back
