Four new appointments power Fracino’s production

Fracino has made four new appointments just months after a further three new team members joined the manufacturer’s world-class production facility in Birmingham.

David Bushell, Gary Cutler and Sergei Vlad are working on the production line with Sam Grew joining the design team of the UK’s only manufacturer of traditional espresso machines.

At the end of 2018, the multi-award winning manufacturer boosted its front line customer support with a hat trick of appointments across its Service and Sales departments.

Formative developments are in the pipeline for 2019 when Fracino’s multi-million pound investment programme will see its 45,000 sq ft production facility further extended. Eighty five per cent of components are fabricated in-house via state-of-the-art laser cutting, pressing, folding, welding and finishing equipment and bespoke CAD technology.

A decade after launching an export arm from scratch, Fracino exports to over 70 countries worldwide with increased orders from countries including the Czech Republic, Denmark, Chile, New Zealand and El Salvador. Customers span global brands from PizzaExpress and Subway® to independents.

Head of global sales, Peter Atmore, who is a board member of both Made in Britain and the Beverage Standards Association, said: “We’re extremely proud of the fact that we operate one of the world’s most advanced and efficient espresso equipment manufacturing facilities and warmly welcome David, Gary, Sergei and Sam on board.

“Innovating and investing in cutting-edge equipment and in recruiting, training and developing our hard working team remain our top priorities as Fracino continues to go from strength to strength.”

A champion of British manufacturing which displays the Made in Britain marque on every machine that leaves the factory, Fracino is hosting a Made in Britain workshop on exporting on March 27.
