As part of their ambitious growth targets, the Harlow Group and Smiths Harlow have employed a new Business Development Manager, Richard Phillips.

Richard joins the company following 22 years working in the aerospace, nuclear and space sectors, in both civil and defence supply chains, with both customers and suppliers, and most recently working as a business development and supply chain manager within tier one manufacturing company, CW Fletcher.

Richard is a driven sales and procurement professional, having completed levels four and five in the Chartered Institute of Purchasing and Supply (CIPS) as well as having just completed four years on the Sharing in Growth Aerospace Program and joins the company at a pivotal moment with the remit of raising the company image and boosting the already excellent sales prospects of the two companies.

“I see this as an excellent opportunity to work with the talented team already in place and am looking forward to expanding our footprint in key market sectors such as the aerospace, renewable energy and space sectors.”

“The owners have a very clear vision of where these two companies are going and I jumped at the chance to join and support their plans. The machining and fabrication possibilities here are excellent, in sizes up to 3 metres in diameter, and I feel privileged to be joining the team at this time. ”
