New Appointment As Exports Rise At Mecmesin

23 Jun 2011


Mecmesin, a leading manufacturing company, based in Slinfold in West Sussex, has just appointed a new Export Sales Co-ordinator.

33 year-old Ben Mitson has been appointed to the new role which has been created as a result of increased overseas demand for Mecmesin’s quality control testing systems.

Mecmesin’s force and torque testing equipment is used in Quality Control laboratories and production areas to detect manufacturing defects across a wide range of industries from automotive engineering to packaging to medical devices and textiles.

Thousands of companies worldwide use Mecmesin measurement systems to maintain consistency of manufacture to comply with relevant standards and to save money by minimising rejects in the production process.

Mr Mitson, a fluent Spanish speaker with a background in Logistics, who previously worked for Conrico International, exporting cars globally to humanitarian organisations, said he was really pleased to have been appointed: “It’s exciting to see people who are really passionate about what they do. At Mecmesin, they really care about their customers and their products. Before coming here, I hadn’t realised that everything needs to be quality tested by manufacturers to protect consumers but being here has really opened my eyes to that. It’s nice to be based in Sussex which is a beautiful part of the world but having offices in America, France, Thailand and China and a worldwide network of distributors makes for a truly international atmosphere.”

He added: “In the role of Export Sales Co-ordinator, I am looking forward to communicating with customers and distributors around the world and I would like to develop the Latin American markets. I lived in Barcelona for nearly 11 years, so I am keen to use my language skills in this role. I’m also planning to learn Portuguese which will be essential for communicating with our Brazilian clients and distributors.”

The Managing Director of Mecmesin, John Page, says: “This year has seen a steady growth of exports at Mecmesin and we are very pleased that Ben Mitson has joined the company. Already more than 70% of our revenue comes from exports, so it’s an important role within the company. We are hoping to expand our international markets, especially the emerging markets which are just beginning to realise the true value of taking quality control seriously if they are to compete with other manufacturers globally.”

Mecmesin, which is based in Newton House in Spring Copse Business Park in Slinfold, is a leading designer and supplier of force and torque measurement solutions. It was set up in 1977 and has offices in America, France, Thailand and China, as well as a world-wide network of distributors.

Mecmesin currently employs more than 60 people in its UK headquarters but is looking to recruit more engineers.
