Turner Promoted to Head of Operations at Northern Industrial

Steve Turner has been promoted to Head of Operations at Blackburn-based Northern Industrial to assist the spare parts and repairs provider’s global expansion plans.

Turner first joined Northern Industrial in 1999 as an electronics engineer after a six-year career with the Royal Electrical & Mechanical Engineers. Since then, he has progressed through further roles including site engineer and team leader up to Service Manager, managing a team of 35 electronics engineers at the Blackburn site, prior to his new appointment.

Now as Head of Operations, his new role includes oversight of the same plus warehousing, logistics and estates at Blackburn and also the company’s new sites in Germany and Mexico.

Established over 40 years, Northern Industrial exports industrial spare parts and repair services to manufacturing and engineering companies across the world.

The company’s central operation in Blackburn holds over £10million in stock covering over 200,000 parts numbers, sourced from over 1,350 manufacturers.

As well as providing new replacement parts from manufacturers including Control Techniques, Beijer, Allen Bradley, Danfoss and Pixsys, the company specialises in providing obsolete spare parts and repairs solutions primarily for industrial equipment and production lines no-longer supported by OEMs (original equipment manufacturers).

On starting in his new position, Turner said: “Having started off fixing circuit boards on the shopfloor over twenty years ago, it has been a great journey for me personally here at Northern Industrial.

“Our role is to help companies worldwide keep up and running and avoid costly downtime and manage stressful breakdown situations as quickly as possible. Our new operations in continental Europe and the Americas mean we can offer our customers faster solutions and I’m looking forward to working with our colleagues across the globe to help keep the world running.”
