Mackworth Strengthens Management Team

Further to substantial and ongoing investment towards our customers’ needs for the future, Mackworth Healthcare Limited today announced a major reorganisation and a new management team to take the changing requirements of the business forward. Managing Director Neil Smith has paired with Partner & General Manager Lee Reeves to bring a fresh view on the already well-established business. Neil & Lee will work closely with the existing Finance Director – Anne Pearson-Love & Operations Manager – Len Foley.

Neil told us “I’m very privileged to be working alongside such a professional management team. Lee & Len come with a wealth of experience in general manufacturing, operations, product management and procurement, whilst Anne has 30 years financial stability to bring to the party. With my own background specifically focusing in sales & marketing functions, I feel that Mackworth now has the balance of an experienced set of hands in every department to serve the growing requirements of our existing and indeed newly developing customer base.

The changes, formally effective from April 1, 2013, will fundamentally reorganise the company’s sales & operational functions, whilst committing one step further to developing a truly British manufacturing strategy.

The improvements in manufacturing will come partly by investment towards substantial recruitment and the procurement of new computer numerically controlled sewing machinery that specifically aims to improve quality and strengthen our competitiveness in the tail of the economic crisis. These developments will also accelerate and increase the production of innovative textile products, namely its slings & accessories division by strategically integrating the skills of the workforce.

Lee Reeves commented “After conducting appropriate market research, the feedback from the majority of our customers today, tell us that they require locally manufactured “synergy products” to that of a specific quality managed standard. These items need to be clinically capable of competing with the brand leaders of industry, been that of high quality and of course a good price”.

Mackworth’s new team have already commenced close working relationships with our current and indeed new suppliers to improve in all areas, whilst also recently obtaining ISO 9001(2008) accredited registration.  These ongoing developments have allowed us to meet most requirements as asked of us by our customers to date.

A completely new hoist and sling range will allow Mackworth to stretch further into the public sector and without conflict to our existing customers. Visit our website on for further details about this exciting new portfolio.

Our reorganisation is designed to transform Mackworth into a more innovative, integrated and agile global company with its next generation of leadership firmly in place. The changes will accelerate the transformation of the Company that began over 30 years ago. They will now make it possible for all of Mackworth’s divisions to work together to assume a position of leadership and, together with our customers, achieve great things.”

The new Board of Directors are completely committed to building on the success of its already rapid growth since the majority acquisition in November of last year.
