ITL operations director Geoff Knibb is retiring from his current position to take on a non-executive role on the company’s board, while ITL China business development manager Sam Yang celebrates 10 years with the company.
Joining ITL in 2005, Geoff was first appointed a directorship after a four year tenure as the company’s operations manager, following its accreditation to quality assurance standards ISO 9001:2008 and ISO 14001.
“Geoff played a major role in our attaining standards accreditation through aligning business strategy with customer-winning practices,” says managing director Adrian Lockwood.
“He increased threefold the production capacity of our existing facilities through re-organisation and the introduction of more efficient working practice.
“In addition, he oversaw the inception of a new quality department further enhancing Integration Technology products.
“Geoff’s contribution to the company has been invaluable and I am very pleased he will continue to work on progressing the ITL brand as the world’s foremost pioneer in imaging technology development.”
Adrian added congratulations to Sam Yang who this month celebrates 10 years working on developing ITL’s presence in the China marketplace.
Most recently Sam oversaw the relocation of ITL’s China operations into new premises at Hong Qiao Airport in West Shanghai as well as the registration of Integration Technology China Ltd introducing local manufacturing of ITL’s SubZero lightweight, high output, miniature UV curing lamps.
Says Adrian Lockwood: “With our China market business continuing to grow, so too had the importance of establishing a more significant foothold within the community and our conversion from import agency to a local manufacturing business reflects this fact.
“Sam has project-led this process all the way and we are all delighted to mark his first decade with ITL!”
