Oxford Instruments Plasma Technology adds to executive team

UK-based Oxford Instruments Plasma Technology (OIPT) says that it has responded to demand for its etch, deposition and growth equipment by investing in key business areas and expanding its workforce by over 30% in the last year. As part of this expansion, the firm has now appointed Steve Chittock as operations director (Supply Chain and Manufacturing) and Neil Perry as finance director.

A Chartered Engineer, Chittock has 20 years operations experience in market leading, multi-national engineering companies operating in aerospace, defence and automotive markets. Previous employers include Morgan Crucible, SKF & Bostrom.

Perry brings a wealth of experience, gained in a number of industries, including telecommunications, aerospace and automotive. Previous employers include Wireless International and Matra Marconi Space (incorporating BAe Space Systems) in commercial, interim and finance director roles.

“These two appointments give us considerable strength to meet the needs of our customers and to develop the competencies and resources that support our future growth”, said Andy Matthews, managing director of Oxford Instruments Plasma Technology. “In order to remain competitive and produce world leading products, it is imperative that we bring the skills and experience into the Company that meet the needs of the 21st century, and I believe that these two new appointments will help to achieve this.”
