Senior appointments engineer global growth

Lorien Engineering has appointed two senior managers to take on the demands of a growing international market.

The two internal appointments aim to maximise global opportunities as well as meet the demands of emerging new technology sectors.

Andrew Mieleniewski, who has spent the past two years as General Manager of Lorien Engineering Polska in Poland, has been appointed as an Engineering Manager in the UK head office. Mieleniewski will head up the process and utilities technical team for the Lorien Engineering Group.

Steve Turner, Engineering Director of Lorien, said: “I am pleased that Andrew will be returning to the UK branch to head up this important lead discipline within our business. He will develop, strengthen and shape the department to meet the existing and changing needs of the business, particularly with respect to growth opportunities internationally, as well as in emerging technology sectors such as sustainability and biotech.”

Ian Cartwright previously managed the process engineering team and has been appointed Business Development Manager for one of the company’s largest sectors, brewing and drinks.

Managing Director Steve Slater said: “With his strong technical capability and familiarity within the brewing and drinks sector, Ian Cartwright is well placed to further develop this important part of our business both within the UK and internationally. David Scholes, our current BDM servicing this sector, will remain in post for up to a year to ensure a smooth transition and handover to Ian.”

Slater continues “These two internal appointments complete a strategic review of the business that has also seen a significant investment into the growth of the Lorien Engineering Polska business, with the appointment of a new MD for Poland who will be leading the further expansion of this part of the business. The whole thrust of the development of our business is towards servicing our growing international market.”

The company provides key technical and project management services to clients in the food, brewing, drinks, and life sciences sectors, delivering capital investment projects, sustainable energy and safety compliance work on an international basis.
