ANDREW Withers has been appointed technical director for Rotork Controls, the electric valve actuation division of the global Rotork flow control engineering group. In his new position he will be responsible for new product developments and research functions involving all of Rotork's electric actuator product lines.
Withers will be taking over from Graham Ogden who, as Rotork Group research and development director, will now focus on developments encompassing all of the Rotork Group divisions -- Controls, Fluid Systems, Gears and Instruments -- as well as directing specific strategic group programmes.
Withers (33) joined Rotork in 2002 as a graduate electronics design engineer following the award of a first class honours degree in electronic engineering at the University of Manchester Institute of Science and Technology. His work has been closely involved with major product developments embracing Rotork's intelligent IQ electric actuators, the SI/EH electro-hydraulic actuator ranges and the innovative CVA electric control valve actuator.
Promoted to senior engineer in 2009, he became electronics design manager in 2011, where he has played a major part in the introduction of the third generation flagship Rotork IQ range of intelligent electric valve actuators.
The Rotork flow control group is the world's leading designer and manufacturer of industrial valve actuators, valve control systems, valve accessories and precision control instruments. Rotork's global network of over 350 offices and representatives provides a localised single source for these products, supported by life-of-plant maintenance, repair and upgrade services.
