Dawsongroup Temperature Control Solutions (DGTCS), a cold and humidity-controlled storage provider, has announced the appointment of Simon Gumery as Commercial Manager for construction projects.

Gumery is a well-known name in the food and pharmaceuticals world following 15 years in the temperature controlled industry.

“One of the main reasons I wanted to join DGTCS was that my personal values are very much aligned with the business," commented Gumery.

In his new role, Gumery will be responsible for delivering a quality project to those wanting a new build or permanent extension. "From concept to completion, I now have access to the vast array of assets and knowledge at DGTCS, which will allow me to collaborate and provide the best possible service to customers," he said.

Rod Benham, Managing Director at DGTCS, added: “Simon will play an essential role in the growth of the firm, focusing our strategy on working with more clients looking for factory extensions and new builds.

"We expect demand for this service to grow following Brexit as UK companies realise that they need to invest in production and storage to maximise their processes and efficiencies."

For Benham, the food and drink industries, as well as pharmaceuticals, are constantly evolving with ever heightening quality standards and increasing levels of compliance and technical capability. "The demand for factory extensions and new builds are a key part of the DGTCS growth strategy,” he added.
