New managing director

Tom Swallow is the new managing director of Welglaze, the Hertfordshire fabricator the Audasi Group acquired last year.

Group chairman Adrian Barraclough said Tom’s years as sales and marketing director at Quickslide affirm his credentials for the job.

“We set out from the beginning to develop Welglaze with the same ethos and standards as Quickslide in terms of product quality, service and marketing support,” he said. “Tom’s track record leaves us in no doubt that he is the right person to take Welglaze forward with those same goals and standards.

Tom said: “The past year has seen a complete transformation at Welglaze, from the move into a new purpose-built factory and significant investment in new production equipment to recruiting and training the right staff and establishing efficient factory processes. Now, with much of that in place, Welglaze is ready to build on the philosophy of continuous improvement in seeking new goals and I am very excited to have been tasked with leading the company forward from here.”
