AB Systems is meeting growing demand for its award-winning materials handling and process cooling services with the appointment of Milton Shelley (pictured) to the role of Sales Director. A highly experienced and well-known figure in the food processing arena, Mr Shelley is charged with delivering technical sales services to AB Systems’ wide client base, a role which includes working closely with the company’s engineers to deliver bespoke ancillary solutions to manufacturers across the UK.

A specialist in materials handling and PET projects from conception to completion, Mr Shelley brings a wealth of valuable experience and expertise to the AB Systems team. He joins the company fresh from an eight-year position as Technical Sales Manager for UK-based materials handling and conveying equipment manufacturer, Jenco, where he specialised in the food and powder areas. Prior to this role, Mr Shelley carved a notable and extensive career in plastics processing and materials handling in South Africa, where he worked with companies such as Conair and Nissei ASB, as well as a host of leading names in the plastics, food, pharmaceutical and chemical industries. He also served as National Chairman for the Plastics Institute of South Africa for three years, after which he was awarded Fellow of the Institute for his commitments to the South African Plastics industry.

“AB Systems is dedicated to engineering excellence, so it was important for us to secure a Sales Director with technical expertise as well as great business acumen. Milton fits this description perfectly, with extensive international experience from hands-on installation and commissioning of systems to industry advisory and thought leadership positions. He is going to be a valuable asset to our growing client base, and we are so pleased to welcome him to the team – candidates like Milton are a rare find,” said Jeff Day, Managing Director of AB Systems.

Mr Shelley is equally as delighted to have joined the rapidly expanding company: “AB Systems is a highly ambitious firm that’s growing through a genuine dedication to service excellence, engineering expertise, and innovative, out-of-the-box solutions. Their approach and ethos are really refreshing, and I’m excited to take AB Systems’ offering out into the market,” explained Mr Shelley.

Despite having joined AB Systems only recently, Mr Shelley has already secured a major new contract for the company, with several more in the pipeline.

“Milton hit the ground running. He gets what AB Systems is about, and is fantastic at translating the benefits of our approach – saving time, energy and money, improving system performance and efficiency, and removing the administrative burden of dealing with multiple suppliers – to customers. In fact, we’re projected to expand our engineering team imminently in order to deal with incoming requests from Milton’s hard work. We’re very excited for the future of AB Systems,” concluded Steve Payne, Director at AB Systems.
