Gary Stevens, MD, says, “I would like to congratulate the new senior management team on their appointments and I look forward to working with them in order to make the plan a reality and in turn see us grow significantly over the next 5 years. We have some significant opportunities open to us that will ensure that the Company has a secure and prosperous future, we have some exciting times ahead of us!”
Roger Kemp, Chairman, adds, “I have no doubt that the changes present some exciting new opportunities for people to develop within the business. I see it as the start of a new chapter in the development of Focus SB as a major electrical accessory manufacturer in the UK.”
