Gordon Smith, chief executive of SDI Group, is taking on the additional role of the UK general manager as part of a reshuffle to consolidate its position in Europe. UK managing director Mike Hilton will take over the role of European sales director.
Gordon Smith said: “During this time of unprecedented economic turmoil we have faced a number of challenges side by side with our clients in the retail industry.
“Over the past two years we have driven significant changes within our business to strengthen our offerings across Europe.”
Within the last year the company has acquired Pep Fordtechnik, set up a new R&D centre and designed and built four automated facilities across Europe.
