Hands-on knowledge

The Glass Machinery Company has appointed Mark Cerrone as a director. He was previously a general manager at the Synseal Group.

Mark started working life in the Derby family glass business, making sealed units at the age of 13 on a Saturday morning. After going to university, Mark gained experience in commercial glazing.

Mark’s knowledge of glass from a hands-on production point of view will be invaluable and the move to The Glass Machinery Company is a natural progression for his career, the company said.

Mark’s experience of business systems and procedures will help expansion in a controlled and scalable manner while managing director Phil Birchall focuses on growing sales and product lines.
