Gulmay Strengthens its Management Team

Gulmay has made a series of appointments which reflect the company’s growing international reach. This is not simply a question of replacing staff. New senior positions within the company will help power development of product ranges, global business and customer satisfaction. The company is developing and growing its position as a global leader in the design and manufacture of x-ray generators and controllers.

New roles include that of Dr Rod Wilson as Engineering Director and Mark Jewell as Director Global Business Development. With business expansion in China, Europe and the USA, Gulmay is investing heavily in the x-ray security sector as well as in NDT. A brief profile of the new appointments is below, but there will be more to follow as Gulmay grows to offer more services and products to new and existing clients.

As well as this important new role, Mark Jewell continues to be MD of Gulmay USA, and Director of Gulmay Electronics in China. Mark opened the sales, service and manufacturing facility near Atlanta, Georgia, USA, in 2008 after many years in the x-ray industry. His new position will see Gulmay expand into new areas of the globe and new industries, while ensuring all existing customers receive world-class service.

DR ROD WILSON

Engineering Director

This new position will thrust Gulmay forward as the ‘best in class’ provider of x-ray generator technology.
