This year our current Managing Director, Richard Armstrong, celebrated 31 years at OEM Automatic with 21 of those as MD there and, in parallel, two years as the MD at Zoedale. In agreement with OEM’s senior management, Richard has decided to end his professional career and retire at the end of 2021.

Although it has been a short relationship with our customers and suppliers at Zoedale, I must say I have enjoyed working alongside the team here at Zoedale.

However, I am confident that we have found an excellent successor in Peter Evans, who joined us on 1st November and takes over from me on 1st December 2021. I will remain until the end of 2021 to assist with the handover process.” – Richard Armstrong

Peter joins us from his most recent role as Sales Director for Northern Europe at Emerson. However, he also brings a wealth of experience in previous senior management positions within the industrial world. We are sure he will continue the development of Zoedale Ltd and OEM Automatic UK, and the relationships with our customers and key partners, in a positive way.

I am delighted to join Zoedale and OEM Automatic UK and the wider European team. This is a dynamic company with great values and ambitious plans for the future.

From our products to our systems for industrial applications, Zoedale and OEM Automatic strives to add value in every stage of the sales journey for our customers and leading manufacturers, which makes the OEM group the best distribution channel for our partners.

We will continue to focus on engagement with our customers, employees and suppliers, to build a sustainable path to continued growth.” – Peter Evans
