To further fulfil its international ambitions, Mat-Tech recently opened a facility in the UK. Between Birmingham and Manchester, the facility is located in Stone, Staffordshire. Mat-Tech already supplies a number of international customers, but with the establishment of the second facility, Mat-Tech would like to further strengthen its position in the UK. Just like the Headquarters in Son en Breugel, Mat-Tech UK, will focus on both its core strengths, ‘Production’ as well as ‘Development & Testing’.
Our Commercial Director for the UK, Arthur Miles (see photo), is responsible for leading our mission in the UK. The following is a brief resume of Arthur within the industry:
With a keen interest in engineering and manufacturing, after stepping into business in 1998 from having a Masters in Education and a BA in Business Management and a successful track record in academia, as a young lecturer at University, at the outset, Arthur set his mind on materials, particularly steel and non-ferrous metals, representing companies such as OTTOWOLFF Handelsgesellschaft GmbH, after which they became part of the Thyssen Krupp family latterly known as Thyssen Krupp Mannex. Later the passion for engineering steered him into automotive component manufacturing where he became Head of Purchasing for a Tier 1 OEM during which he successfully implemented and enrolled a JIT system in place. Later on, Arthur obtained his MBO degree from Imperial College and having been in the industry for 8 years, he decided to move within the supply chain to gain further exposure to international trade where he assumed the role of Business Development Director within one of Perkins Engines Distributor’s of Middle East and the CIS, establishing a successful exclusive dealer and service network representing the Perkins brand in territory during his 10-year tenure at the company. The evolving business environment in the last decade and a shift of focus away from product as a commodity, and differentiation being achieved through quality and enhancement of customer experience as well as a more local reach, with a passion for engineering in mind, Arthur decided to move to the engineering sector and became the Commercial Director for Mat-Tech in the UK.
