New Process & Vacuum Manager for Thorite

New Process & Vacuum Manager for Thorite

Monday 27th January 2014

The UK's biggest distributor of pneumatic products and process systems, Thorite, has appointed Mike Eason (56) to the position of Process & Vacuum Manager.

Mike brings many years experience of pump design and sales to his new job, having started his career in 1973 as a Mechanical & Production Engineering apprentice with Sulzer Pumps in Leeds, where he rose to become Drawing Office Project Leader. Since then Mike's expertise has been honed in the manufacturing, food and pharmaceuticals processing industries, having worked for pump manufacturers Verder and KECOL. He joins Thorite from Graco Pumps, where he was the Process Business Development Specialist.

Speaking of his new role Mike said: "I'm very much looking forward to utilising my knowledge and experience to develop and broaden Thorite's current penetration of the industrial process market. Thorite has many top quality offerings including the Ingersoll Rand ranges of ARO diaphragm pumps, plus market-leading products from other respected manufacturers such as Burkert, ASCO and Piab. In addition I'll be providing specialist support for Thorite's Key Account Managers and the regional network of Sales and Service Centres, to bring new products, solutions and services to our existing and future customers."

Mike is soon to be married and lives in Rothwell near Leeds. When not immersed in the complexities of the process market, his favourite leisure activity is course fishing, especially on the River Swale in the Topcliffe area of North Yorkshire.
