Romax Technology Limited, a technical consultancy providing design and analysis services for gearboxes, bearings and drivetrains is pleased to announce the appointment of Graeme Walford to the position of chief operating officer. Walford, who took up his position at the beginning of 2010, will be supporting CEO Dr Poon with his future ambitious growth plans for the company. Walford graduated from Loughborough University with a degree in mechanical engineering. He began his career with Rolls Royce before moving to MascoTech as engineering director. In 1999 Walford joined GKN Driveline where he set up the new GKN Torque Technology business unit.
"There are tremendous opportunities for Romax, not only within its core business streams, automotive and wind energy, but in many other new areas," Walford says. "I hope that through the experience and knowledge I have gained throughout my career I can help Romax in the next phase of their development, maintaining leadership throughout their core business, but also spreading expertise into new areas, which I believe is the next big step for Romax in the future."
