With the appointment of Dr. Jonny Hunter as Research & Development Manager, FET has significantly strengthened its technical team. Hunter brings an enormous wealth of academic credentials to the department, including an MSc in Medicinal and Biological Chemistry and a PhD in Sustainable Chemistry. This solid academic background is complemented by over 10 years’ R&D experience in industry, including FMCG (fast moving consumer goods) and, in particular, medical devices, which encompasses wound care, the medical device manufacturing process and regulatory environment.
Fibre Extrusion Technology Ltd (FET), Leeds/UK, designs, develops and manufactures extrusion equipment for a wide range of high value textile material applications. A significant market for FET’s meltspinning equipment is medical devices, so in-house expertise in this area is a vital commodity.
Mark Smith, the previous R&D Manager, is taking a short sabbatical and will be returning in a more strategic role as FET’s Director of Technology, meaning his continued presence will further contribute to the company’s breadth of technical expertise.
FET has also expanded in a number of other departments to reflect the rapid growth in sales over recent years. Mike Urey is the new Sales Engineer, bringing a wide industrial experience and strengthening all aspects of business development. 3 new mechanical and electronic engineers and a new appointment in the design department have also been made.
