European expansion for KMF
KMF (Precision Sheet Metal) is continuing its expansion into central Europe by strengthening its business development team at its Slovakian manufacturing facility.
The Newcastle-under-Lyme manufacturer of precision sheet metal components opened its European manufacturing centre in 2011 to support a growing list of customers in the heart of Europe.
To build on this customer base, it has appointed Pavel Vajda to its business development team. Pavel's experience extends to sales, customer service, warehousing and logistics, and he also benefits from extensive experience in developing customer relationships and key account management.
"We have been very encouraged by the growth in new business that is being won by our Slovakian facility, particularly from new customers in eastern and central Europe. The time is now right to push on with this growth and Pavel will provide that local knowledge that we need to take KMF's European business to the next level," says Gareth Higgins, Managing Director, KMF (Precision Sheet Metal)
Important to KMF is the consistency of management and manufacturing procedures between its headquarters and main manufacturing facility and the facility in Trenčianske Stankovce.
Employees from Slovakia undergo advanced training at KMF's Newcastle-under-Lyme factory, where they can develop the skills and knowledge that are not available in Slovakia.
"This consistency between manufacturing sites is important to us as we produce components for customers here in the UK, who also have demand across Europe," added Gareth Higgins.
"Maintaining the quality of parts produced that stand up to strict comparison and manufactured using the same processes and techniques gives us a vital advantage."
