Justin, who has worked at Invertek Drives for over 12 years as a dedicated Key Account Manager, will report to Rhydian Welson, Sales and Marketing Director, and will help develop the sales strategy as part of the company’s international growth plans.

Based at the company’s headquarters at Welshpool (Wales), his appointment comes as the company continues to record significant growth within the VFD sector, with record orders and sales over the past three years.

“The VFD market is highly competitive, but the reputation and reliability of our Optidrive VFD range continues to attract new and existing customers,” said Justin.

“Globally, there is a focus to reduce energy consumption, to cut harmful emissions, and subsequently help reduce climate change. Our complete range of VFD technology is supporting our customers desire to utilise higher efficiency motor technology and processes, and are helping to create more efficient and productive solutions for our customers.

“Despite increasing legislation, driving changes in behaviour, we know that a large proportion of motor controlled applications are not using VFDs, or are not utilising available technologies, resulting in highly inefficient processes that can result in significant costs for the operator, including energy, maintenance and downtime.

“At Invertek, we are implementing our own initiatives within our manufacturing headquarters in our drive for a cooler planet, whilst we can actively promote and support our customers and end users regarding the benefits of VFD technology in saving energy. It’s great to be able to help support the need for change from both sides.”

He added: “With the continued investment in our staff and training, it feels good to be able to support the next generation of engineers and professionals who are developing new and improved technologies to help reduced carbon emissions further, and to help in bringing those benefits directly to our customers.

Rhydian Welson, Sales and Marketing Director, said: “Over the past three years we’ve witnessed significant increases in demand for our technology which has resulted in record orders globally. We’re building on that by investing in our workforce and global manufacturing facility. This investment will allow us to increase production significantly in late 2023. 

“Justin has over 25 years experience within the VFD industry, including at Invertek where he works closely with our OEM customers. He’ll continue to work in this area while leading our sales team through the development of new and existing customers within our global sales network.”
