Rail workwear manufacturer Ballyclare has appointed Stanley Russell as technical sales executive.
He has more than four decades of experience in the textile industry and joins the company after managing his own workwear firm.
Stanley said that he was looking for a new challenge when the ‘irresistible’ opportunity arose to join Ballyclare in its product development department.
Managing director Carlton Greener said: “[Stanley] has worked in many different areas of performance fabrics, including weaving, dyeing, coating and lamination, and so he brings a huge amount of technical expertise to Ballyclare.
“Stanley has also worked across many different end user markets, and he has particular expertise in police, fire, ambulance and various other outdoor applications, so he’s a very valuable addition to the Ballyclare team.
“We’re delighted that he has chosen to join us, and we’re confident that he will help us drive our product development programme on to new heights.”
