Salamander strengthens R&D and marketing teams

Published:  05 September, 2017

Salamander Pumps has further strengthened its research and development team with two new appointments, and added a new marketing administrator to its growing marketing support function.

Experienced design engineer Andrew Carver brings with him 12 years of experience in plastics and product design at leading companies in South West England and the North East. Andrew will be working alongside Northumbria University graduate Andy Berston who joins the team as electronics engineer, after gaining a first class honours degree in Electronic and Electrical engineering.

Both of the new recruits will be part of a 10-strong research, development and quality team working on the continuous development and expansion of Salamander’s range of shower and whole house pumps.

The new staff join Salamander at an exciting time, following the achievement of Quiet Mark status across the majority of its whole house and shower pump range; the re-engineering and re-launch of its centrifugal range under the new Right Pump label; and the creation of a new website complete with innovative features.

Andrew said: “I am very pleased to be joining a company with a great reputation in the industry for quality and innovation, and one which is working at the cutting edge of product design and development.

“Joining an already strong team in a company which offers good opportunities is a great career step, and I am looking forward to the challenges. My new colleagues have already made me very welcome.”

Also joining Salamander is Charlotte Bell, who takes up the post of marketing administrator after graduating from Northumbria University with a Business with Marketing Management degree.

Charlotte is working alongside the strategic and trade marketing managers, and will be part of the push to increase awareness and grow market share throughout the trade and consumer audiences, particularly through digital channels.

Design engineer Diana Hunter welcomed the new recruits and set them off on their structured induction plan.

Gareth Richards, Salamander’s technical director, said: “We are delighted to welcome our new recruits. Salamander’s excellent reputation for customer service and support is underpinned by having the right team in place, and we maintain that through a policy of recruiting experienced people as well as encouraging new talent.

“Our research and development team played a big part in the recent achievement of Quiet Mark status across the majority of our range, and with some exciting new projects in the pipeline I am sure that the skills and experience that Andrew, Andy and Charlotte bring to the business will play a significant part in helping us to achieve our business goals.”
