We are delighted to appoint Scott Cottrell as the new Uddeholm UK Component Manager. We have made this appointment in an effort to strengthen our strategy to develop and grow this area of our business, to fit with our customers’ needs.
For generations, Uddeholm has been extremely successful in producing high-performance tool steel for the tooling industry. In recent years our focus has turned to introducing a new product strategy, focusing on component areas where general engineering steels are deemed insufficient.
Using Uddeholms profile of HPS we saw a new generation of customers in all kinds of application areas such as; hand knives/industrial blades, dies and rolls for food production and animal feed, screws and barrels, Injection pressure systems, shafts and sockets and even shot sleeves for diecasting to name only a few… What we notice from our customers who utilise our High-Performance steel portfolio is a longer life of production with less maintenance and downtime, plus savings on power and energy such as electrical output. This leads to a productive money saving and a greater business efficiency.
As of April 2018, Scott Cottrell will take over as component business manager. Scott previously held the position of Technical Sales Engineer covering the South of the UK for Uddeholm. He has a background in manufacturing and hands-on experience with several engineering competencies. This enables Scott to better understand the customer’s needs and help to prescibe the correct technical solutions.
“Having worked at Uddeholm for almost 4 years I feel that I have been able to gain useful knowledge of Uddeholm’s HPS range with access to many fantastic mechanical properties and solutions. I can see how our customer’s production can be improved. I am excited by the challenges that lie ahead. I am learning from our customers day to day and together we can improve and prevent the common mechanical failures in everyday production and help increase the UK manufacturing economy”- Scott
