Engineering consultancy committed to growing its operations in the food sector

Burton based Lorien Engineering Solutions has appointed a business development manager to further grow its established reputation in the food and drink sector.

Matthew Hidderley, an Aston University MBA graduate, joins Lorien following various commercial roles including a holiday park general manger in the Peak District and over 10 years at a leading science and technology park, where he headed up a marketing and sales team.

Matthew has joined the firm during a period of growth; Lorien has recently recruited a senior project manager and a business development manager. The company is also in the process of adding senior staff to its Packaging, Utilities, Safety Compliance and Site Safety Management teams.

Lorien’s operations director Bill Treddenick said: “We have a long and proud history in the food and drink manufacturing sector. With Matthew’s strong commercial background in sales, marketing and digital media, we believe he is ideally placed to help us to communicate our message to a growing list of clients in an ever-widening global spread.”

Matthew Hidderley said: “Lorien Engineering has a fantastic reputation in food and drink, having long worked with many of the sector’s household names.  I’m looking forward to contributing to the firm’s ongoing success.”
