Annable becomes Brockway president
Roy Annable, Brockway Carpets chairman has become president of the carpet manufacturer in honour of his achievements at the Kidderminster company.
His son Charles, Brockway Carpets md has succeeded him as chairman.
The move is the latest in a strategy of senior level appointments this year, which saw the arrival of Shaun Lewis as sales director in June and the promotion of Steve Glover from commercial manager to national sales manager last month.
Charles takes over the role of chairman from his father, who 50 years ago jointly acquired AG Brockway, then a small Axminster and Wilton carpet manufacturer dating back to the 1930s.
'It is a huge privilege to take on this role from my father, who becomes president in honour of his tremendous devotion and hard work. I am extremely proud of his achievements and his great vision, which means we have a solid platform from which to build 'It's an exciting time for the Brockway brand. Our major product development programme is underway and we're in an excellent place to position Brockway as the UK's premier manufacturer of beautiful, wool-rich carpets', he says.
'We believe strongly in British craftsmanship and are proud to manufacture beautiful, award-winning carpets which offer great value for money for everyone – whatever your budget or taste. Our highly skilled local workforce gives us a huge advantage over some of our overseas competitors. We have a high calibre management team in place with Shaun and Steve leading our sales programme, and I look forward with much anticipation to driving the business ahead.'
