Birmingham-based 3D printing, casting and bespoke manufacturing company, Weston Beamor has restructured its management team in a bid to grow and expand its customer base.
Head of business development, Glen Day will now move from an office based role, dedicating four days a week travelling the country to meet with Weston Beamor’s clients and potential new customers.
Day, who has over 30 years’ experience in the jewellery industry originally trained at the bench. The company believes that his knowledge of both modern and traditional production techniques offered by Weston Beamor make him ideally placed to take on a more ambassadorial role.
Reporting directly to the company’s managing director Andrew Morton, Day will retain his overall supervisory role within Weston Beamor.
The greater responsibility for the day-to-day running of the business will be shared jointly with head of Computer Aided Design (CAD) and 3D printing, Ed Hole and administration co-ordinator, Kate Wall.
Glen Day head of business development at Weston Beamor said: “The services that Weston Beamor offers are much broader and more sophisticated than in the past and we have become aware recently that many of our regular customers – let alone potential customers – are not fully aware of all the manufacturing facilities that we can offer them, particularly in the sphere of creating bespoke designs.
“I simply love talking about jewellery and I much enjoy being able to help retailers and designers to solve their bespoke manufacturing problems. Going into retailers’ shops, seeing the ranges they are selling and talking to them in their own environment about what we can do to help them gives me a much greater understanding of their needs and opens up a much stronger channel of communication, ” added Day.
According to a statement from the company, the manufacturer “enjoyed the most successful year in its long history during the financial year 2016/17 and has grown its client base further in recent months,” investing in its CAD and administrative teams to cope with the additional demand.
