Endress+Hauser Pyrotemp appoints new General Manager
Endress+Hauser Pyrotemp has appointed Ben White as the new general manager starting from 01 January 2015.
Ben White started his instrumentation career specialising in temperature back in 1988 and his started own company in 1994 called STS Instrumentation. After STS was acquired, he joined Endress+Hauser South Africa in 2003 as a product manager for the temperature products portfolio. He was tasked to grow the temperature business specifically in the engineered solutions field.
Ben's appoinment follows the decision by his predecessor Chris Gimson, who decided to go on semi-retirement and take up the challenging role as Training Manager at the Endress+Hauser sales center.
Ben and his family moved to Germany in 2006 where he worked for the Endress+Hauser Global Competence centre for Temperature. This centre dealt with general temperature support and temperature engineering solutions on a global basis. Ben was also responsible for technical support for temperature products mainly for the Oil & Gas and Chemical industries.
Ben played an instrumental role in providing temperature measurement solutions for Shell in their Hydrocracking & Hydrodesulphurisation reactors globally, which influenced Shell appointing Endress+Hauser as a preferred vendor for field instrumentation globally.
The experience he gained both in the local temperature business and global engineered solutions and projects business over the past 20 years plus, will certainly be beneficial to the local production centre in Benoni. Ben's experience also assists Endress+Hauser in becoming a prime temperature company to serve both the local and African temperature market requirements through the Endress+Hauser Sales Centre based in Sandton.
We welcome Ben and wishes him and his team great successes.
