Norbar Strengthens Manufacturing Management Team

Norbar Torque Tools has appointed Alan Collins as its new Torque Wrench Facility Manufacturing Manager. The appointment comes during a period of expansion for the Banbury based firm which recently began a phased move to a new 170,000 sq. ft site on Wildmere Road in the town.

Collins will be responsible for managing the Torque Wrench manufacturing facility and leading the Wildmere Road team through an exciting period of growth.

Collins brings a wealth of manufacturing and staff development experience to Norbar, as he joins from Abingdon and Witney College where he was an Engineering Lecturer, following more than a decade in Tier 1 Automotive including Intier Automotive Interior Systems.

Neill Brodey, Managing Director of Norbar Torque Tools said:

“Everyone at Norbar has the same desire to deliver a best-in-class product and meet the growing demand for our torque wrenches. We are very proud to make torque wrenches in England for customers worldwide, just as we do for the other products in our wide range of torque tools and measurement systems.

Alan is already proving his value in the existing management team and his specific experience will be invaluable to maintain our market leading position across the globe.”
