Don Theobald now managing director of Talon

Published:  30 January, 2013

Talon Manufacturing, recently acquired by Davidson Holdings, has appointed Don Theobald as managing director.

Mr Theobald has been with the company for well over ten years having been head hunted by the founder Mike Dudney to add sales and marketing expertise to what was then very much a hands-on manufacturing business. His impact was instant and sustained, as not only was Talon’s customer base widened and consolidated, but also diversification took place from pipe clips and fittings into other related products such as pipe covers, trunking and skirting covers.

Mr Theobald is delighted that he is in a position to lead Talon forward once more. “Being under the Davidson banner gives us the impetus and investment potential for continued growth,” he says. "I greatly look forward to the challenge to come and to seeing Talon expand and prosper."
