Injection moulding and chrome-plating specialist Borough Ltd, has announced that Aamir Chaudhry has been appointed as the firm’s Director of Operations. In the 11 years since he joined, he has been Quality Manager and most recently General Manager of the Essex-based manufacturer.
This latest promotion not only reflects Aamir’s dedication to Borough and his role in the success it has enjoyed in recent years, but recognises the importance of retaining his expertise and experience as the company looks to progress in a range of markets.
New Borough Director of Operations, Aamir Chaudhry commented:
“While I will retain aspects of my previous role, my responsibilities will now include budgeting, purchasing and helping design efficient workflows to maximise the company’s productivity.
“Borough has always delivered a high-quality service to its clients, providing injection moulding and our renowned chrome plating for plastic components, but we are ambitious to grow and I will help drive our performance through the development of long-term operational strategies.
“On a personal level, it is gratifying to receive this vote of confidence from the senior management team that I have worked so closely with in recent years. Together we make a great team, full of the drive and ambition needed to ensure we exceed the targets defined in our growth strategy.
“I’m grateful for this opportunity, which would not have been possible without the support, guidance and dedication of my team and wider group of colleagues, which have helped propel the business to new heights. But there is more to come and this is the start of the journey, not the end.
Joint Managing Director, David Brereton, said of the appointment:
“Given Aamir’s dedication to improving the service we deliver, this was a natural step in his career. It is important to retain talent like Aamir and we’re pleased this promotion will keep him in the business for years to come.
“Given the race overseas for cheap components, post-Brexit challenges and weakness of the UK economy, it has not been a great period for British-manufacturing, but there appears a renewed appetite by industries to seek the moulding and plating services we provide, much closer to home.
“Aamir’s appointment to the board recognises our need to take advantage of the commercial opportunities starting to appear in the UK, in sectors as diverse as automotive and packaging, as we look to grow the Borough business.”
