Bishop appointed

Nigel Bishop has been promoted to managing director of Avantek Machinery, assuming full responsibility for the day-to-day operation and strategic direction of the company.

Nigel has been with Avantek as sales director since early 2016, and has made a positive contribution to the business during that time, the company said.

Nigel said: “I’ve been getting more involved with the running of Avantek over the last few months and am delighted to be able to continue taking the business forward. We have a great team here and I’m excited to see what we can achieve.”

In May 2014, Avantek became part of the Flamstead Group of companies, owners of HL Plastics and the Liniar brand of PVCU windows, doors and roofs.
