Due to the very sad loss of our friend and colleague Darren Bradwell (General Manager) – P&V now has to begin to go forward and we are delighted to announce that Mr. Steve Harper has been appointed as General Manager and will be taking up the position with immediate effect.

Steve has worked for P&V for 27 years, beginning his trade apprenticeship at the age of 16. Alongside his College tuition, working in the Tool Room and other sections, he gained practical experience in his chosen trade but also the overall workings of the P&V factory, finally finishing his apprenticeship as “Apprentice of the Year”

In 2008, he began training to take over the role of Product Manager, involving periods of work at some of P&V’s Distributors, gaining wide knowledge of the working conditions for the tools that P&V produce.All this experience has been put to good use in many markets Worldwide and developing good contacts with many Customers, helping to develop the business to its current levels. He then became Head of Engineering in June 2018.

With his contacts with our Customer base and his knowledge of our products and facilities, Steve is a logical choice to succeed our departed friend, Darren.
The role of General Manager is a demanding job and we know that Steve will respond to the challenges and we wish him all the best for the future.
