Jemtech (UK) has announced the promotion of Stewart Coull to the position of Commercial Director with immediate effect. This appointment further strengthens the position of the metalworking fluids specialist and lays the foundations for continued business development into the future.

In this new role of Commercial Director, Stewart will be responsible for the overall prosperity of the company, with particular emphasis on enhancing profitability through identifying new sales opportunities, as well as seeking growth created by investment and productivity gains. He will also have responsibility to develop internal systems, methods and communications with authority to implement changes that will deliver advantages to Jemtech, its customers, and its suppliers.

“Stewart has earned this role through his endeavours, not just his family ties,” says Steve Coull, Managing Director, Jemtech (UK). “Over the past seven years he has demonstrated his ability to drive the company forward as part of a friendly, motivated and like-minded team and at 28 years of age and about to be a father for the first time, the time is right to devolve some additional responsibilities to him.”

Stewart has worked for Jemtech for seven years, working internally and externally supporting the company’s team of sales and application engineers. During this time he has developed his knowledge of the metalworking fluids industry both with formal training in Switzerland and the UK, which has resulted in a sound technical and working knowledge, particularly of Blaser Swisslube products. He will now work alongside his colleagues and co-directors in what the company sees as a positive step forward that will enhance the desire to further expand Jemtech and with one eye on the future.

“Since my father started Jemtech 15 years ago the business has been extremely successful and it’s great to have the opportunity to be able to continue this success and maintain Jemtech as a family business. Experience tells us that customers like dealing with us due to the fact that we are able to react quickly and respond with action rather than corporate red tape, and regardless how we grow the business we will always endeavour to maintain this flexibility,” says Stewart.
