Guttercrest welcomed Kenton Cawley as head of production this month.

In the role, Cawley will be tasked with leading the manufacturing process at the firm’s 65,000 sq ft manufacturing facilities for its range of aluminium rainwater goods, reporting to managing director Gary Power.

“We are very pleased to have Kenton joining us, he has an outstanding professional background and will play a key role at Guttercrest. The knowledge and experience he brings to the role will help transition our company to the next level of production efficiency,” said Mr Power.

Cawley joins Guttercrest from Haynes International, where he spent six years and most recently served as manufacturing and engineering director. In the role he led production for brands including Rolls Royce/Safran and Siemens. Cawley originally joined Haynes as an operations and engineering manager in 2012, following a decade with Doncasters Precision Machining where he was promoted to operations and engineering manager.

Cawley’s arrival is the first in a series of high profile industry appointments planned for 2019 as the firm continues to expand.
