According to the company, this move will allow John Dunkley to concentrate on technology and development in the field of water, gas, ultrasonic and centrifugal atomisers.
“Simon has already taken over many of my responsibilities, and can take much of the credit for ensuring our survival through the recession,” said John Dunkley. “Simon is capable, hard-working and a safe pair of hands to look after the future of ASL.”
We plan to double the size of our facility over the next few years,” Simon Dunkley told Metal Powder Report. “This expansion will see the additon of two entirely new atomising lines allowing ASL to enter previously untapped markets.”
He foresees a more positive market for the next few years.“Things are definitely looking more positive for the atomising powder industry, particularly on the capital project side. During the global recession capital investment has been severly restricted but as the economy begins to pick up we are now getting more positive enquiries and are looking forward to a strong year in 2010/11."
In 2008 the company had sales of £3 million in its two main technologies, metal powders and metal powder production plants.
