Engineering consultancy welcomes new recruit to its growing ranks.

 Lorien Engineering Solutions has bolstered its growing team with the appointment of a business development manager to grow the company’s share in the life sciences sector. 

Tim Bednall has joined the engineering design and project management specialist from Molins Technologies, which is a world leader in custom machinery and product solutions for packaging and processing.

An experienced technical, sales and project engineer, Tim will focus on identifying opportunities and building strategic partnerships which will underpin Lorien’s continued growth in the life sciences sector. 

Tim has joined the firm’s UK office in Burton during a period of growth; Lorien has also recently recruited an engineering manager to lead its newly formed Utilities department and a further business development manager to focus on the Food sector. The company is also planning to add a senior project manager, a senior building services engineer and a safety compliance engineer to the team. 

Lorien’s life sciences director Bill Treddenick said: “We have a very strong history in the life sciences manufacturing and discovery sector. With Tim’s engineering background, and his track record in forming strong cooperative relationships with customers in Life Sciences, we believe he is ideally placed to communicate our message to a growing list of clients.” 

Tim Bednall said:

“Lorien Engineering has a fantastic reputation across a number of industries, and I’m looking forward to contributing directly to their success in the pharma sector.”
