James, who joins from personal care products manufacturer Stephenson, has 16 years of experience in senior commercial roles. At Technikraft, he will be working with his fellow directors to drive the future growth of the business.

Technikraft develops and manufactures cleaning fluids, fuel additives, anti-corrosion and lubrication products for industries such as oil, automotive and engineering. The company is the market leader in cycling and leisure products and supports many well-known brands.

Established in 1987, Technikraft began a new phase in its growth in 2018 when it received investment from PHD Industrial Holdings, which backs established businesses in traditional industries and helps them expand. Since then it has more than doubled the number of formulations to over 2,000, expanded its sales in Europe and strengthened the management team with a number of senior appointments.

Dave Stewart, the company’s Managing Director, said: “We are pleased to welcome James to the team. After more than 35 years in the chemicals industry, Technikraft is firmly established as one of the leaders in its field. James’ knowledge of the market and his track record for delivering growth will help us to build on our heritage and identify new opportunities to take the company forward.”
