Familiar face welcomed back to the SMI team

Thermal insulation specialist Seymour Manufacturing International (SMI) has continued its expansion by welcoming a familiar face back to the team.

Adrian Fisher has rejoined the Shropshire-based company as a warehouse fitter and engineer – picking up where he left off back in 2009.

“I spent two happy years with the business from 2007 before leaving to continue my work in the warehousing and logistics business elsewhere, but I’m delighted to be back,” said Adrian, 53, from Ketley in Telford.

“The company is ahead of the game in terms of the products it creates – it always has been. And they make their workers feel genuinely valued, as if they are part of the family.

“Even while I’ve been away from the business, I’ve been spreading the word about the value of SMI products, and sharing their stories on social media.

“SMI’s products don’t just save companies money on their energy bills, but they are helping to protect the environment at the same time. I’m absolutely thrilled to be back.”

SMI, based at Sutton Maddock, is a world leader in thermal insulation for protection of food, chemicals, agricultural and home delivery products, serving a diverse range of sectors from supermarkets and pharmaceutical companies to blood banks, and the Ministry of Defence.

The amazing thermal properties of its trademarked lightweight Tempro product have been validated by the BRI Research Association and the Building Research Establishment.

Brian Seymour, SMI’s founder and managing director, said: “We are delighted to welcome Adrian back into the fold. He is a great advocate of our products, which have been scientifically proven to cut energy loss by 25% in chillers and an amazing 33.3% in freezers.”

Customers using SMI’s new Back-Stop family of insulated flexible barriers for chilled or frozen vehicles, say they reduce the loss of temperature from the back of vehicles by as much as 60%.

The Back-Stop family has the ability to revolutionise the food haulage industry, according to Ruskim Seafoods, one of the companies involved in the testing process.

Adrian’s appointment is just one part of a major restructure of sales operations at SMI, which is currently looking to further expand its network of overseas distributors in the manufacturing, and refrigerated services industries – particularly in mainland Europe.
