Eastern appoints Head of Hygiene division

We at Eastern are delighted to appoint Wayne De’Ath as Head of Sales for the group’s Hygiene division. De’Ath joins from Ipswich-based recruitment consultancy, Time Appointments, where he had been Associate Director since 2009.

He will lead Eastern’s specialist Hygiene Division, which supports food factories and breweries across the region through the installation, maintenance, design and management of stainless steel pipework, valves and Trelleborg FDA-approved hoses.

“The food and drink industry is experiencing greater pressure as a result of more complicated and ever-changing audit processes,” says Eastern’s Owner, Matt Gissing.

“Our project team is here to ensure that you get the right products to support the lifetime integrity of your factory or brewery, minimising your long-term expenditure.

“Our hygienic welders are the best in the business, and are led by a first class project manager who will support your project from start to finish: anything from installation of process pipework to CIP systems, steam lines, insulation, automated valves and, of course, all of your hoses and hose reels. We also provide a cloud-based complete Hose Asset Management System to provide companies with the data they need to maximise their return on investment.”

De’Ath comments: “I’m very pleased to join the Eastern team, selling and supporting top-quality hose hygiene solutions to Eastern’s growing client base in the hygiene sector. I’m looking forward to utilising my skills and knowledge within this competitive industry and being part of the company’s growth”.
