Roeslein & Associates expands in the United Kingdom
Roeslein & Associates has announced that it will be expanding its United Kingdom office. Having been in the area for nearing ten years, the company has recognised an opportunity to boost its presence and build its UK team in order to serve local clients better.
Roeslein will relocate its offices to Northampton, just 96km east of Birmingham. Within the transition, Andrew Backhouse has been named the director of operations in Europe. “It gives me great pleasure in becoming a member of the Roeslein team and having the responsibility associated with the strategic expansion of the operations into Europe,” he said.
Dave May, president of Roeslein & Associates, explained: “I truly could not ask for someone better to lead this endeavor. Backhouse has the experience we need to be able to support this expansion. With a successful track record of running can manufacturing plants, as well as developing new markets, I couldn’t see anyone else taking on this role. As a company, we are thrilled to be expanding our European office to serve our customers better.”
This expansion will allow the company to build on the solid foundation it has established to further serve its customers in Europe and surrounding areas. It will focus its efforts on consulting, engineering, project management, installation services and start up and commissioning. Within the consulting aspect, Roeslein will be able to support key customers with Lean manufacturing, process troubleshooting and efficiency diagnostics for established manufacturing plants.
Backhouse, added: “It is my belief with almost 30 years of experience in the beverage can industry, delivering value to customers has always been built on a foundation of safety, quality, efficiency, team performance and the right culture. Living and working in the Middle East and China provided further insight and a higher level of appreciation of the diverse nature of business the world has to offer and the experience to be a part of Roeslein’s global focus. Bringing the team together in opening the new European office and setting a strategic platform for the future with our customers is very exciting for all involved.”
Roeslein & Associates will be relocating to their new 3228 sq ft office space in Northampton, United Kingdom in the spring of 2017.
