APPOINTMENTS


Industry Veteran Grif Palmer joins Martin Professional, Inc. as New Business Area Manager, Rental – US.


NEW OWNERSHIP


New owners at Abacus have


implemented an array of changes which have seen the business refocus on its core markets and strengths.


mackwell is pleased to announce the


appointment of Neil Price to their senior management team as Global Production Director.


The Dubai and Russian Abacus businesses have been closed, and these markets will now be serviced via the existing network of Abacus agents and distributors. The company retains its entire Chinese


operation, including its additional


manufacturing facility in Shanghai. The company also keeps its presence in Singapore, but with a focus on supporting its partners in the region.


Harvard Engineering has recently appointed Dr. Andy Davies as Business Development Manager for indoor controls.


In the UK, the focus is on improving customer service and being the supplier of choice for high performance lighting, columns and masts, with significant investment in new products and services already being made.


Steve Lamb, Abacus Managing Director, commented “The UK Abacus business has always been profitable and remains so. Whilst the market is challenging, we have the right products and strategy to see significant growth opportunities in our market segments. Export is a key part of our business and it is important to stress that we are not exiting any overseas market. We are simply reverting to a proven method of doing business which has been very successful for Abacus in the past.


Reinforcing the


commitment to further strengthen its trade presence, Havells- Sylvania is pleased to


welcome Jerry Blackmore as Wholesale Trade Sales Director for the UK.


Without exception all of our customers and stakeholders have been very supportive during the recent changes, and this clearly demonstrates the quality and value which Abacus offers.”


LIGHTING UP THE G8 SUMMIT


The Society of Light and Lighting appoints Brendan Keely as Secretary.


Lee Broom was among the UK designers selected by Prime Minister David Cameron to install his celebrated Decanterlights in the Leader's Bar for the G8 Summit that took place on the 17th and 18th June 2013 at the Lough Erne Resort in Northern Ireland. The Leaders Bar was especially refurbished for the Summit for the G8 Prime Ministers, Presidents and Chancellors for the two day event. Lee Broom was selected along with four other UK designers to showcase UK design talent to the G8 world leaders. Lee Broom commented “I am honoured that my products were selected for the G8 Summit to showcase British design in the Leader’s Bar. It is a great platform for my work, and I hope my Decanterlights helped create an inspiring environment for the G8 world leaders to enjoy a welcome tipple at the end of each day.”
