Richard Lockwood has been appointed as the new pharmaceutical business line director at Matcon, taking over from Shaun Baker who leaves the company after eight years of service.

In his previous role within the sales team, Lockwood worked tirelessly to create successful markets for Matcon in South America and South Africa, with several large orders being secured in recent months.

Lockwood has a Bachelor of Engineering in Chemical Engineering from the University of Bradford and brings 20 years of experience in engineering & manufacturing sales in the food, pharmaceuticals, and oil & gas sectors to the role, having joined Matcon almost seven years ago from Alfa Laval.  

Lockwood will be responsible for the continued growth of the pharmaceutical side of Matcon’s business with a continued focus in India and Bangladesh, alongside providing strategic support to the global sales teams.

“Richard’s customer centric approach is ideal as we continue to focus on our customers and solving their material handling problems,” said Stephen Ball, Matcon’s managing director. “I am delighted that we have been able to promote Richard into this position”.

“This is an exciting time in Matcon’s expansion,” said Lockwood. “I look forward to helping our global teams increase our market share in this key strategic industry sector and continuing to build on the solid foundation laid down by the pharmaceutical team over recent years.”
