Leading family-owned cutting fluid specialist announces change at the top, but business as usual
Jemtech (UK) Ltd, the exclusive distributor of Blaser Cutting Fluids in the UK and Ireland, has announced that current managing director, Steve Coull will hand over the MD reins of the company to his son and current commercial director, Stewart from April 2016.
He will remain in the business as full time CEO, focusing on new business development and overseeing the launch and implementation of a new, innovative business venture later on in the year.
Established in 1996 by Steve and his wife Sue, Jemtech has gone from strength to strength over the last 20 years and is recognised across industry for the quality of its Blaser ‘Liquid Tool’ cutting fluid solutions, its first-class after-sales services and the experience, expertise and approachability of its staff.
Stewart Coull has been with the company for 10 years and his appointment as managing director ensures that Jemtech’s business values, ethos and approach remain unchanged.
Steve Coull says: “Continuity is important to customers, partners and staff, and the transition will be seamless.
“2016 is an important year for us. The planned relocation of our UK headquarters to new premises, the imminent launch of a new, ground-breaking product in May and a significant increase in our headcount all represent another milestone in Jemtech’s history and explain why the time is right to divide the management responsibilities.”
From April, Stewart Coull will take over all operational responsibilities, working closely with the sales team, while continuing to manage a number of key accounts.
He says: “I’m looking forward to the challenge and the company is in good shape. We have great products, great service, a great team and a great reputation. It is my intention to build on these strengths so that we are better able to identify and secure new business opportunities in the future.”
