Mechan Introduces New Board of Directors

Mechan has welcomed new members to its board of directors.

The Sheffield-based manufacturer has promoted Martin Berry to engineering director, whilst Andrew Mott and Jean Gourp from the firm’s parent companies complete the line-up.

Martin Berry has worked for Mechan for 15 years, overseeing the design and production of its renowned lifting and handling equipment and brings a wealth of technical experience to the management team.

Qualified mechanical engineer, Andrew Mott, has been appointed as Mechan’s managing director. This will expand his current remit for parent company, CIM Group, which includes overseeing subsidiaries in Canada, Tanzania and Singapore, as well as commercial activities in English-speaking African markets.

Jean Gourp is vice-president of umbrella organisation CMI Services and is based at its headquarters in Belgium. He will coordinate Mechan’s activities with other group companies, helping them work together and utilise their collective expertise.

Alain Lovambac, chairman of France’s CIM Group, has overseen the restructuring. He said: “We believe these changes to Mechan’s board of directors gives the firm a stronger structure, whilst keeping management costs to a minimum. This strategy has worked well in other CIM subsidiaries, enabling profitability to be maximised.”

Mechan’s day to day operations will continue to be overseen by financial director, Zahir Altaf.
