Former head of marine at ABB, Tim Munn has been appointed consultant for business development at iconsys
The UK-based automation and industrial drive systems specialist is building its maritime division through this appointment.
This comes as iconsys moves into a purpose-built, £3M (US$4.1M) headquarters in Stafford Park, Telford.
iconsys managing director Nick Darrall sees marine and ports as an important area for future growth for the company, which already works across industries including steel, pulp and paper, automotive, construction and intralogistics.
“Bringing in Tim, with his background in marine automation with ABB, we want to catapult iconsys into green propulsion solutions and electrical and controls infrastructure for zero-emissions vessels,” said Mr Darrall.
