Serving a wide range of industries, the Group has developed some of the most sophisticated bespoke software on the market, they provide technical consulting services, full turnkey packages and operate a remanufacturing facility for large capacity specialist machines. Across everything the group does, its watchword is precision. In fact, precision's not just PTG's middle name, it's its first name too.

With a provenance that dates back to 1860, it’s a tale of continuous innovation and technological breakthroughs that has seen them receive four Queen’s Awards for Innovation. Today the group is firmly established as a world-class manufacturing technology leader. 

To drive their next phase of growth, PTG are seeking to appoint a highly motivated and driven Business Unit Director to lead an exciting new, and rapidly-growing global business unit, Friction Stir Welding. Supplying a market which offers significant expansion potential within specialist sectors, it’s a truly unique opportunity. 

The successful appointee will be a qualified engineer with a commercial and/or operations bias. As a senior leader they will have the expertise needed to lead a growing and profitable manufacturing engineering business unit, ideally with experience of automotive supply chain. Importantly they will demonstrate inspiring and collaborative leadership capability alongside strong relationship and influencing skills.

As PTG takes on ever-more challenging and complex projects in a competitive, high-value niche market, it is important that the Business Unit Director show relentless focus on customer centricity, ‘right first time’ execution and continuous improvement.

Importantly the Business Unit Director will have the ambition to realise the huge potential of this venture. Indeed, for the right person there could not be a better time to join, with the concept proved and sizeable contracts already secured, the appointee will be accountable for a real disrupter in the industry.
