Bystronic UK has appointed Anthony Barker as the company's new service manager and he joined earlier this month.

He brings with him experience and knowledge of building and leading a service department within various industries and predominantly an electrical engineer but has worked and gained an engineering background in most disciplines and in different technical areas including nuclear, aerospace, automotive, medical and machine tools.

His engineering career development has been progressive and started by serving 14 years as a marine engineer in the Royal Navy and then by working alongside some of the world’s largest engineering manufacturers like Rolls Royce Aerospace, GE Power, Siemens and AVIC amongst others.

Bystronic UK said his career progression has also included periods of employment within the positions that form a service department to enable him to have a holistic view of the dynamics that surround it, with spells as a service engineer, technical support engineer and product specialist.

His last role was as national service manager supporting the manufacturing operations for companies like Bentley, Aston Martin and Jaguar Land Rover.

As service manager, the company said Barker will "lead and support the service department in providing customers with a class leading partner. This is a minimum customer expectation in return for what is a significant, or possibly their most significant investment in capital equipment. With world class service support, the same customers can expect returns on their investment not only initially but in the years to follow".

“World class service is nurtured through hard work, dedication and an intrinsic desire to provide continuous improvement to the customer experience,” said Barker.
