Mr Mellor has joined Sauermann UK from Mitsubishi, where as senior sales engineer he was responsible for delivering full solutions to a range of end users. With over 20 years of commercial experience within the HVACR sector, coupled with a high level of technical knowledge, Mr Mellor is well-poised to deliver a comprehensive growth strategy for the KIMO instruments range.
He said: “I started my career as an engineer, so I genuinely understand how to create and deliver value for the end user. Sauermann has an excellent reputation, and we have a tremendous opportunity to influence the industry by enhancing the value that we bring to the marketplace, embracing the incredible technology and quality of KIMO instruments.”
Mr Newman joins Sauermann UK from the medical device industry. With knowledge and experience of implementing effective B2B marketing and communications strategies using a wide range of resources, his interest in marketing and communications was heightened during his studies at Lancaster University.
Mr Newman said: “It’s easy to get passionate about the monitoring and control of air parameters when you consider the broad spectrum of industries that it permeates: museums preserving precious artefacts, operating theatres, clean rooms, right through to coffee shops on the high street. Sauermann is an innovative, people-orientated, thriving business, and I feel proud to be part of an expanding team.”
Sauermann UK managing director, Ernest Bate, added: “We already have an extremely talented team in the UK and overseas. With these foundations already in place, Sauermann will continue to increase its offerings and be the ‘go-to’ for solutions. Attracting people of this calibre into the business is a great endorsement of our strategy and ambition. I’m excited to welcome both Ian and Sam to be part of a very bright future.”
