UK-based Avon Group has appointed a new finance director to support the company’s ambitious growth plans.
In the last two years, the specialist manufacturing and engineering firm acquired two additional businesses to strengthen its position in the industrial components market: Corby-based Scandura and Cheltenham-based Edgewest Plastics.
Charles Toosey has previous high-level experience in financial management and business consulting as finance director for Alvance Aluminium Group and as an associate director at Grant Thornton.
Tooley will be responsible for managing Avon Group’s financial performance as the business embarks on its next phase of growth. The group has continued to expand to become one of the UK’s leading suppliers of automotive and industrial components, and the development and manufacture of rubber seals for aerosols globally.
“We’re delighted to welcome Charles to the team at a really exciting time for the group,” said Mark Rushin, group director of Avon Group.
“We have emerged from the challenges of the pandemic in a strong position and we’re seeing growing demand for our products across the industry sectors we serve.
“Charles’s skills will strengthen the expertise of our management team as we continue with our ambitious growth plans. He will be spearheading that growth and I wish him every success in this strategically important role.”
