Camloc Motion Control appoints new Chair following last year’s MBO

Camloc Motion Control, one of the UK’s foremost designers and manufacturers of gas springs and dampers, has announced the appointment of Ewan Wilson as Chairman of Camloc Holdings Limited.

Following an exciting year that saw the business change ownership from American investors to Camloc directors, Andy Hubbard, Julie Barker and Matt Warne in a management buyout, Ewan’s experience as a director with a strong engineering and financial background is being welcomed by the Camloc team.

“Ewan was previously Managing Director of HellermannTyton Data Ltd, a leading UK manufacturer of infrastructure equipment used in copper and fibre communications networks which served major telecoms service providers around the world,” explains Camloc Sales and Marketing Director, Andy Hubbard. “His knowledge and understanding of UK manufacturing, together with his experience in corporate strategy and management consulting, makes him the ideal Chair for our business. I’m confident he’ll play a significant role in helping us achieve our growth plans for the years ahead.”

With exciting new products already in development, Ewan Wilson – from Bedfordshire – is looking forward to lending his expertise to the ambitious Leicester-based business in his new role.

“Camloc is a strong British manufacturing business with quality products and great people,” said Mr Wilson. “I believe they have some excellent opportunities in front of them and I’m very much looking forward to working with the team at Camloc to help them develop the business further.”

Camloc’s bakers help raise £147 for the Poppy Appeal

Today Camloc Motion Control Ltd received notification from the Royal British Legion that it raised the magnificent sum of £147.29 for last year’s Poppy Appeal!  An amazing effort.

Following the success of previous years, a number of staff either baked or bought cakes and sold them off at the factory with all monies raised being donated to the Royal British Legion Poppy Appeal. This year there were even more volunteers, which meant even more delicious cakes.

Thank you to everyone who contributed to the appeal and a special thanks to the brilliant bakers for providing all the wonderful cakes which we know give a tremendous boost to donations.
