An automated solutions provider has strengthened its sales team with the appointment of a nuclear decommissioning applications specialist.

John Dilworth has joined KUKA Systems UK to further expand its global business and successful partnerships with key customers in Europe, Asia, Australia and North America.

He has brought nearly 30 years’ sales experience to his new role at the Halesowen-based company and worked solely for the past decade in the nuclear decommissioning and waste management sectors.

John’s expertise includes a wide knowledge of remotely operated vehicles (ROVs) and working remotely in decontaminated environments. He has not only previously managed and delivered projects valued at up to £3m, but also written testing programs for nuclear decommissioning tasks.

“We’re delighted to welcome John to our team and he will play an important part in helping us to provide innovative solutions for nuclear decommissioning sites around the world,” commented Neal Owen, manager at KUKA Systems UK.
