Mr Brand is taking over from previous MMC manager, Jordan Gould, who was recently promoted to Central East sales manager and is responsible for the logistics and management of the Bowers Mobile Metrology Centre (MMC). His role will include performing technical demonstrations to customers and supporting other members of the sales team with visits.
With experience in metrology, product demonstrations and applications knowledge on portable arms, laser trackers, CAD, and 3D analysis software, Mr Brand also has an array of qualifications including AUKOM L1 Metrology and KUKA Robotics Operation.
Speaking of his recent appointment, Mr Hitchin said: “Working as head data engineer for UWR racing has given me experience in creating solutions quickly and efficiently to any problems we faced at the racetrack. This valuable experience enables me to effectively help customers find solutions to their metrology problems."
Mr Brand added: “I’m delighted to be managing the MMC for Bowers. It’s an exciting opportunity me to use my knowledge to demonstrate a range of products to a variety of businesses up and down the UK, providing metrology solutions to both new and existing customers.”
