Keen motorcyclist understands the customer’s ‘need for speed’ in manufacturing

Electrical supply, repair and field service provider CP Automation has appointed Paul Butterfield as sales manager for the company’s power transmission products.  The new recruit plans to put his expertise to good use providing solutions across industry, with the converting sector a particular focus.

CP Automation is a specialist in the repair and replacement of automation equipment including electronic boards, PLCs, AC and DC drives. The company’s continued growth and increasing number of customers has created the need for this new appointment in the management team.

With almost thirty years experience in the electromechanical engineering sector, Butterfield started his career as an apprentice at William Lamb, a footwear manufacturer. He then progressed from apprentice engineer to a variety of sales roles within the industry.

In his new position at CP Automation, Butterfield hopes to introduce a range of gearboxes, motors and tension control devices for the converting industries, such as paper, film, foil and textiles.

“One challenge for us is to build long term relations with other European suppliers and thus increase the electromechanical portfolio of the company. Giving clients more options ultimately translates to a faster repair and maintenance service. There is always a need for speed in manufacturing,” concluded Butterfield.

Butterfield, a keen motorcyclist, is no stranger to speed; he enjoys riding his Honda FireBlade as often as the weather permits. When not flying through the scenery on his bike, Butterfield takes a more laid back approach and relaxes by hill walking in the countryside.
