Centa icon with border.jpgRecent growth sees one sales engineer and two engineering designers join expanding business.

Following its recent expansion programme, which included a new half million pound extension to its Shipley headquarters, Centa Transmissions Limited is further expanding its sales team.

Tom Binns has joined Centa as a sales engineer with responsibility for London and the South East of England. He will be working across both the industrial and the marine divisions and will report to sales manager, Nigel Smith.

Based in Kettering, Tom comes from an industrial manufacturing background and has experience in selling in the oil and gas related markets, where Centa, a manufacturer of flexible couplings and mechanical power transmissions, has an interest.

Tom, who is also completing a degree-level qualification and graduates this Summer, is looking forward to a long and fruitful career helping Centa achieve its growth objectives.

Two apprentice engineers have also been given full time roles within the company. Mohammed Usman, who designed Centa’s new and highly successful electromagnetic clutch, has been employed within the design department and Jake Coxon will be working closely in the engineering team specialising in dynamics and torsional vibration calculation.

Managing director, Bob Arnott, says, “These three full time appointments reflect the continuous growth that the company is currently enjoying and I’m very pleased that customers are asking Centa to do more and more work.” This is because, says Bob, customers are becoming ‘assemblers’ rather than ‘manufacturers’ and rely on innovative companies like ours to help them in produce drive solutions.”

Centa will continue their policy of recruiting engineering under graduates and apprentices, as they are keen to maintain the innovation and manufacturing expertise they are renowned for worldwide.
