Steve Goodwin, General Manager at Aquabio said : “Terry has been with Aquabio from its early days and has always been a key member of the team as the company has grown.  As a result he has both a thorough knowledge and a comprehensive understanding of all aspects of the business and, as such, is the perfect choice for the role.  Luckily for us, he also has a razor sharp mind, natural charm and wit!”

Aquabio – which operates from its headquarters in Hallow, Worcestershire – was established in 1997 and is a European Leader in industrial water, wastewater and air treatment, and water recycling and reuse.  The company has pioneered the implementation of water recycling within a wide range of industries including food and drink, bio fuels, pulp and paper, landfill and leachate and pharmaceuticals.

Aquabio is part of the Freudenberg Group, a global company which operates in 60 countries worldwide.

Terry concluded : “Our new management structure is now firmly in place in readiness for future growth as well as to support the transition from a largely UK-based business to a global enterprise.  All the first tier management roles are occupied by expert individuals with longstanding histories and experience with Aquabio.  This evolution underlines the internal strength of our people as well as refining the reporting structure within the company and into the wider Freudenberg Group.”
