Andy Perkins joins Envirogen Group
We are pleased to announce that the Envirogen Group team have expanded with the addition of Andy Perkins who joins as Sales Engineer to work across the Industrial, Food and Beverage and Healthcare sectors.
With over 30 years’ of experience working in the water treatment industry, Andy brings with him extensive knowledge on the application of water treatment equipment and chemicals into various sectors of the market. His previous employers have included what is now GE Water and Lubron UK.
Having started work in a laboratory after attending what is now Nottingham Trent University, Andy moved on to sales in the water treatment chemical sector where he looked after major customers in the industrial sector as a Key Account Manager. He moved on to the healthcare and building service market looking after a team of service chemists as well as growing the existing customer base.
A change of direction took him into the water treatment equipment market where his experience in the application and dosing of chemicals allowed him to utilise these skills to convey the message that the correct water treatment equipment could allow companies and institutions to save water, energy and work more efficiently. This helped in the successful establishment of a new water treatment equipment firm in the UK for which he was the UK Sales Manager.
Andy has the capability of looking at both the chemical aspects and the engineering aspects of a wide range of water treatment applications.
He gives regular talks for the Combustion Engineering Association (CEA) on the Water Treatment aspects of steam boiler control under BG01 and looks at the issues around water treatment which are some of the main causes of boiler failures and accidents – these can cause poor efficiency and have a detrimental environmental impact. He also sits on a committee that is reviewing a complementary document for the Health and Safety Executive (HSE) on water treatment equipment supplied into the Packaged Shell Boiler and Water Tube Boiler market.
David Hayes, Sales Director at Envirogen Group, said “we pride ourselves on our ability to deliver complete customer solutions for water and wastewater treatment, so Andy will be a very valuable asset to the team. We are pleased to welcome him on board and wish him well in his new role.”
