Following the appointment of Tony Otter as our Group Managing Director of Cooper Research Technology, he was pleased to comment on his new role and progress so far.
Commenting on his new role,
“Cooper Research Technology is a fantastic business. With its deep pool of talent, strong customer base, and robust technology I am really excited about having the opportunity to work with the team and lead the business into the next stage of its strategic development.
I join at a pivotal time in its distinguished history. Whilst we face some immediate challenges to re-focus our activities, the core team shares an ambition for delivering customer-focused product development and services that offers a strong foundation on which we can build to ensure future success.
One of my first changes was to take the Cooper name back to its roots. Cooper Research Technology has been known over the last 10 years just as Cooper Technology. However, I am proud that Cooper Research Technology can provide research quality machines to the general materials testing industry with a quality and value of which we are all proud.
I hope to meet as many of our global clients over the next year and am proud to be the Group Managing Director of such a reputable company.”
