Ewan Wilson

Leicester-based Camloc Motion Control, a designer and manufacturer of gas springs and dampers, has announced the appointment of Ewan Wilson as chairman of Camloc Holdings Limited.

Following a busy year that saw the business change ownership from American investors to Camloc directors Andy Hubbard, Julie Barker and Matt Warne in a management buyout, Wilson’s experience as a director with a strong engineering and financial background is being welcomed by the Camloc team.

Camloc sales and marketing director Andy Hubbard said: “Ewan was previously Managing Director of HellermannTyton Data Ltd, a leading UK manufacturer of infrastructure equipment used in copper and fibre communications networks which served major telecoms service providers around the world.

“His knowledge and understanding of UK manufacturing, together with his experience in corporate strategy and management consulting, makes him the ideal Chair for our business. I’m confident he’ll play a significant role in helping us achieve our growth plans for the years ahead”.

Wilson added: “Camloc is a strong British manufacturing business with quality products and great people.

“I believe they have some excellent opportunities in front of them and I’m very much looking forward to working with the team at Camloc to help them develop the business further”.
