Zaun has made two more senior appointments as the pace of change under sole executive director Alastair Henman gathers pace.
Accomplished engineer Roberto Garziera becomes production and factory manager while mesh industry veteran Paul Fidgett joins as internal sales manager.
Co-founder and director Alastair Henman said: ‘Both of these appointments add significantly to our management team, bringing new knowledge, expertise and experience to the company.
‘And there will be more to come soon as we embark on the most exciting phase in our near 20-year history.’
Garziera has worked in a string of technology-dependent manufacturing businesses, using his extensive knowledge and experience with machine, electromechanical and PLC design to provide innovation in engineering and improve productivity and efficiencies in production.
His immediate tasks are to integrate a new mesh welding line and coating process aimed at the Middle East market, to conduct a feasibility study into adding a V-Beam press to the welding line and to innovate the loading of warped wire drums onto the weaving machine and improve its overall availability and efficiency.
His background is in machinery and industrial product design and he holds a number of patents on products and solutions developed during his career.
Fidgett takes the role of internal sales manager tasked with increasing Zaun’s general fencing sales by 10% in his first year.
He has worked with mesh since 1979 on applications as diverse as fencing, lagging panels in mines, panels for materials handling, screening, screeding, machine guarding, tree guards, bird feeders and many more besides.
His career began at BRC with Weldmesh, which was sold to Tinsley Wire and became Betafence. He has also worked with Dirickx UK, Gunnebo Group business Werra Fencing and most recently, Citadel Security Products.
