Avantek appoints Bishop as new MD

Avantek Machinery has announced that Nigel Bishop has been promoted to Managing Director, assuming full responsibility for the day-to-day operation and strategic direction of the company.

Nigel has been with Avantek as Sales Director since early 2016, and has made a positive contribution to the business during that time.

His 20 years’ experience in the windows machinery market has proved invaluable in developing not only the product range, but also the Avantek team and the customer base.

Nigel comments: “I’ve been getting more involved with the running of Avantek over the last few months and am delighted to be able to continue taking the business forward. We have a great team here at Avantek Machinery and I’m excited to see what we can achieve.”

In May 2014, Avantek became part of the Flamstead Group of companies, owners of HL Plastics and the Liniar brand of Upvc windows, doors and roofs.

With the Flamstead Group’s resources behind them, Avantek provides a different approach to windows machinery by having machines on a much reduced lead time or even available from stock.

An official Wegoma, Urban and Supercut dealer and stockist, Avantek supplies a full and comprehensive product range from hand tools up to and including fully CNC controlled production lines. The team’s comprehensive industry experience has been gained over decades to address the various challenges of window manufactures.
