Nippon Gohsei Appoint New Deputy Engineering Manager at Saltend Chemicals Park Site
Nippon Gohsei UK, the only European producer of food packaging product Soarnol, has strengthened the engineering team at its Hull factory with the appointment of Jon Ross.
Starting his second spell with the company, Mr Ross has taken on the role of deputy engineering manager at the Saltend Chemicals Park site.
As an incorporated engineer of IMechE, the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, Mr Ross spent 13 years with global health firm Novartis to 2008 and then a year with Nippon Gohsei before emigrating to Australia.
On his return after 18 months, he worked on a contractual basis for the company.
Mr Ross supervises plant maintenance, including preventative and corrective maintenance, and now heads up a team of three mechanical engineers, plus instrument, electrical and a maintenance engineer.
Simon Proctor, left, Nippon Gohsei’s engineering manager, said: “We’re really pleased to have Jon permanently on board; he is an excellent communicator, a great team player and has a very strong mechanical engineering background.”
Jon added: “It’s great to be on board at Nippon Gohsei permanently and I’m looking forward to helping the business with the challenges of meeting increased production in an already very busy plant.
“We work as a team here and I put a lot of emphasis on building relationships with people, and try to work with the engineers in an organised, methodical way.”
