Deceuninck UK has announced the appointment of two new directors, Chris Jones and Darren Woodcock, following several years of outstanding performance. Previously head of sales, Chris Jones has been promoted to sales director and Darren Woodcock promoted to operations director.

Chris joined Deceuninck in 2014 during which time he is said to have helped existing customers grow and switched a ‘stream’ of fabricators over to Deceuninck. The combined effect is reported to have powered Deceuninck’s strong growth and market share gains over the last four years.

In 2016 Darren joined Deceuninck and set up its purpose-built foiling plant within nine months. Deceuninck claims to now foil over five million metres a year and says that it regularly ‘sets the industry benchmark’ for quality and service in foiling.

Commenting on the appointments, managing director, Rob McGlennon, said: “I’m delighted to confirm Chris and Darren’s promotion to sales director and operations director respectively. They have helped us grow fast and built our reputation for helping fabricators grow. Darren set up our state-of-the-art foiling plant and his expertise ensures production runs seamlessly. Meanwhile, Chris drives sales with existing customers and has built a heathy pipeline of new fabricator waiting to become customers. This year so far, 10 fabricators have switched to Deceuninck.”
