He will oversee the Pegler Yorkshire and Westco business, based in Manchester, as well as Spanish companies Standard Hidraulica and Comap, plus Seppelfricke and Simplex in Germany. Anderson will be responsible for the group’s EURO 350million turnover and over 1,850 employees, 600 of which are based in Yorkshire.

Former technical product director Neil McCaroll succeeds Anderson as managing director for Pegler Yorkshire and joining the business as commerical director is Scott Craig from Wolseley, where he was sales and marketing director for 10 years.

Group managing director Stuart Anderson commented: “I am honoured to be given this additional responsibility within the Aalberts Industrial group and am proud to have led Pegler Yorkshire through a tranformational three-year period.”

Pegler Yorkshire has recently completed a £15million investment in its stamping and casting facilities, installed a new furnice and in 2013 invested £250,000 in the Pegler Yorkshire Training & Innovation centre.
