Archerdale Ltd, a UK manufacturer and distributor of fasteners, purlin clips, pressings, turned parts and castings, has appointed Tim Graham to the post of managing director with immediate effect.
The appointment supports Archerdale’s forward planning to develop and enhance both the manufacturing and trading divisions of the company, which in turn will help to take the business forward in an ever changing trading environment.
Tim Graham’s experience and expertise will be a major factor to drive the business forward in his new role. “We are very pleased to make this announcement and are confident it will assist in maintaining and enhancing the business going forward,” commented Glyn Brown, group chairman. “The appointment reflects my intention to have less involvement in the day-to-day trading activities of the business, which is why I became the chairman of the board of Archerdale Ltd.”
Alongside Tim Graham as managing director, Paul Crosby will continue as financial director and Mike Procter as logistics director. Archerdale Holdings Ltd remains the overall owner of Archerdale Ltd and the Group board structure and shareholders remain unchanged.
