Dr Robin Johnson joins STS as COO

Surface Technology Systems plc (STS), of Newport, Wales, UK has appointed Dr Robin Johnson as its interim Chief Operating Officer, effective immediately.

Johnson received his PhD in Solid State Physics from the University of East Anglia, before completing an MBA at Kingston Business School, where he specialized in International business and management of Innovation. Since then, among other positions, he has been president of a component manufacturing company in North America.

Of his new position, Johnson commented: “The time between research and volume production is getting shorter and shorter for both STS and our customers. Through capitalising on the opportunities new technologies offer I intend to bring strong competitive advantage to STS that will benefit our customers globally.”
