Injection moulding and chrome plating specialist Borough Chrome has announced David Burtonshaw as the company’s new quality manager, responsible for working closely with customers and suppliers to ensure continuous quality improvement.

He brings a wealth of experience to the role, with a proven track record of increasing responsibility in quality control practices, whilst demonstrating his ability to implement innovative solutions that drive better performance, decrease exposure and strengthen systems.

David Brereton, joint managing director at Borough Chrome, commented: “We are building a talented team here at Borough and David is the latest recruit that brings a new perspective to the service we provide as injection moulders and chrome platers of plastic components.

“Our business is shaped by the needs of our growing client base across a range of different sectors, who all have unique requirements, but share the same desire for high quality components, whether chrome plated or not. David will help our service reflect these needs.

“After meeting with him and explaining our ambition to be Europe’s go-to chrome plating specialist, it was obvious he will be a great fit for the team and our growth, with lots of hands-on experience leading all stages of system development efforts.

“David is an effective problem solver, who will help us improve the quality of our service in the face of major challenges, such as energy costs, raw material costs and the move away from hexavalent chrome later this year. It’s great to have him on board

Borough Chrome quality manager David Burtonshaw (pictured above) said: “I’ve been involved in quality assurance and management for more than 30 years and in that time, I have encountered and resolved every conceivable quality issue, so I’m confident I have what Borough needs.

“Our aim is to continuously improve the quality of the products and services we provide, to the point when we are not just the UK’s leading chrome plater of plastic components, but Europe’s. It will take a lot of hard work and innovation, but that encapsulates the Borough approach.

“As a local to the Leigh-on-Sea facility, I’ve known the business for many years and watched its growth and transformation with interest. The opportunity to work with the senior team to help build Borough for a busier, brighter future, was one I could not pass up on.”

Brereton concluded: "David’s not just a highly qualified quality manager, but a really friendly approachable individual, with a determination to succeed. There will be challenges ahead, but we are building a team capable of delivering results, whatever we’re faced with. And that’s good for Borough Chrome, the workforce and the UK economy.”
