Selecta Systems has announced “with great sadness” the passing of technical manager Richard Bent.

“After a short battle with illness, Richard passed away peacefully on Sunday July 14, 2019 with his family at his side,” the company said.

Richard joined Selecta in 2005 as technical manager with many years of experience within the industry under his belt. Richard was predominantly office based and built up an excellent rapport with customers and staff with his friendly and approachable personality.

His industry and technical knowledge recently enabled Selecta to develop and achieve PAS 24 on patio doors, while being a major part of the team in helping to achieve SBD, PAS 24 and Document Q certification for a range of products.

Sales director Andy Green said: “Richard was a well-liked and popular member of the team and we are deeply shocked and saddened by his sudden passing. We have lost an experienced and valuable member of the team. Our thoughts are with his wife, Ronnie, and his family and friends at this sad and difficult time. Richard was part of the ‘family’.”
