author/source: Seward Limited

Stomacher® sample preparation brand to be reinforced with new products and moves into new markets

Dan CrothersSeward Ltd., manufacturer of the world leading range of original Stomacher® paddle blenders and accessories used in sample preparation for microbiological analysis, is pleased to announce the appointment of Dan Crothers as Managing Director to direct strategy and implement a series of new developments within the Company.

Dan, who has worked with Seward since 2008, assumes the new role after success in previous positions, including managing Seward’s Singapore operations and latterly as General Manager of Seward in the UK. As Managing Director, he will oversee the plans for further growth of Seward’s business globally, including expansion into new markets such as India, and the launch of a number of new products. 2014 saw strong growth for Seward with a 15% increase in revenue in both Europe and North America.

Growth in the US has been spearheaded by the appointment of Gary Ross as CEO of Seward Laboratory Systems Inc., and the opening of new offices in Florida. With this structure in place, Seward is now positioned to further develop its South American market.

“Over the past few years, Dan’s understanding of our customers’ needs and international experience has contributed greatly to growing the Stomacher brand, as well as the development of our new product lines,” said Howard Matthews, outgoing MD and Non-Executive Director of Seward Ltd. “Dan brings both experience and fresh thinking to the MD position and is extremely well qualified to deliver our ambitious company milestones in 2015 and beyond.”

Dan added, “I am extremely proud of Seward and Stomacher’s long legacy which is synonymous with robustness and quality in sample preparation. I’m particularly looking forward to bringing our quality new products to market; these are exciting times for the company and our customers will see real benefits, not only in our traditional food sector, but also the life science and environmental markets.”
