Experience and specialist areas
I’ve been working for B&G since the company started in the early 1980s and have played a major role in the development of the business over the years.
As B&G’s Technical Director, I am responsible for the design and build of specialised cleaning equipment solutions for all types of businesses, particularly those in the food and beverage industry, where the highest levels of hygiene are needed. By working with a wide range of suppliers, I can combine leading edge technologies with an understanding of technical cleaning requirements to design and build custom cleaning solutions for specific requirements.
My proudest achievement
I’m particularly proud of B&G’s specialist Multipump Centralised Cleaning Systems, the most sophisticated and reliable machines of their type, used by businesses all around the world. B&G’s capability in this area is quite unique, with our own team of specialist installers and high pressure pipework systems specialists, we provide a complete service from design and build through to installation and aftercare.
The best bits about my job
As a cleaning industry expert, I enjoy close relationships with all leading manufacturers and act as a resource for technical queries from customers and suppliers alike.
How can I help?
I’m happy to answer any technical queries about the wide range of cleaning equipment we can provide. If you have a cleaning problem and need some technical input or a custom made solution – please talk to me!
