Bonnybridge-based manufacturer E & R Moffat Ltd (Moffat Catering Equipment) has promoted Gordon McIntosh to be its new MD.
Owner principal, William Moffat, said: “The move comes as part of a natural progression for the company. Gordon will be responsible for overseeing and managing the day-to-day operation of the business. He takes up his new position at an exciting time in the company’s history, as we embark on a new phase of growth and development.”
Having served 23 years as MD himself, Moffat added: “I will continue to play an active and hands-on role in the future development of the business. Gordon and I have a shared vision for Moffat and I will be working closely with him and with our management and staff, as we build sales and enhance our product portfolio.”
McIntosh, who was previously commercial director, has over 30 years’ service with the company, having started there straight from college. During his time he’s worked in many areas of the business, joining the board a couple of years ago.
Earlier this year he was chosen to represent the company to meet Princess Anne, when she visited Strathcarron Hospice. This followed the opening of the hospice’s new kitchen, which Moffat was involved in, giving its products and time for free.
“I’m very much looking forward to working in my new role with William and the fantastic team we have at Bonnybridge,” he said. “Moffat has a great name in the industry, both with foodservice operators and our distributor partners. Our plans for the business will enhance the company’s position in the marketplace.”
