Kinesys Expands with Three New Appointments

Automation and motion control specialist and manufacturer Kinesys announces three new appointments boosting the team based at the company’s HQ in Hampton, Middlesex, UK.

This is a result of a busy year to date, and a surge in business following the launch of a new range of game-changing motion control hoists – Apex – in April, plus an expansion of the brand’s worldwide dealer network.

The new posts are in three key areas – digital marketing, software development and workshop technical.

Kinesys co-founder and MD Dave Weatherhead stated, “It’s been a strong year and we’re pleased to welcome our three new staff. Their skills and personalities are a perfect complement to the current team as we prepare for a new and exciting phase in Kinesys’ development”.

Charlie Felicien joins as Digital Marketing & Communications Assistant.

He will be working closely with MD Dave Weatherhead and David Bond who heads up Kinesys USA to develop global brand strategies for the entertainment automation manufacturer.

Charlie’s work will include creating content – videos, images, graphics, etc. – for marketing campaigns, developing artwork and updating the company’s new interactive website – due for launch later in the year – as well as energising and maximising engagement via social media channels.

Charlie was attracted to Kinesys by the job specification and the challenges. He likes the fact that it is all about ingenuity, quality, precision, superlative service …and a bit of imaginative technical daring!

Software Application Engineer Alessandro Manicone’s core duties will include coding, and he will also be assisting with some general software support.

He wanted to work at Kinesys because he likes the entertainment industry, especially live events, theatre and music, and really appreciates this specialist area in which Kinesys operates. He was also impressed by the “friendly and inclusive working environment and extremely well set-up manufacturing facility”.

Matthew Daglish comes on-board as Workshop Technician, where his key role will be product assembly and testing. All Kinesys equipment is proudly manufactured in the UK to the highest standards, so testing is vital to the overall production process.

The Kinesys USA team has also recently increased, reflecting healthy interest in the art of automation and motion control, which is becoming an increasingly popular additional visual dimension for shows and events.
