Trox UK has set up a new product management team to lead the delivery of a major programme of new-product development. Group wide, Trox invests 8% of its revenue in R&D. Projects are driven forward by nine centres of excellence worldwide, of which the UK site in Thetford is one.

The new UK team will contribute to global innovation for the Trox group in those technical areas in which the UK has specific international expertise, as well as managing the ongoing development and delivery of new products in the UK.

Research and development manager Juergen Dieris oversees the Trox UK test facility and its staff.

Iskender Gençer is responsible for product management for chilled beams — one of Trox UK’s most well established and best-selling product sectors.

Barry Trewhitt manages development of the fire-damper range, which will see many launches of EN classified products during 2010. He is also responsible for decentralised air-management systems and an expert in specialist technology for controlling laboratory environments.

Ian Thomas is components product manager, with responsibility for development of Trox’s grilles, diffusers, fan-coil units, acoustics, acoustics and VAV products.

Chief operating officer Ian Sams said, ‘Some manufacturers expect customers to take the performance of new products on trust. That’s not the Trox way. We test, prove and demonstrate the performance of our products. That requires a strong technical base for all R&D activity.’
