The drinks industry logistics company FFG Hillebrand has undergone a restructuring following an internal review of the business.

In a statement today the company said that within its operations department it had created two new management positions with Phil Jones appointed deep-sea operations manager and Ian Saward appointed European operations manager.

"Following a review of our internal structure, the new appointments have been made to ensure we are able to properly service not only the current volumes, but also the projected future growth; considering that our business has doubled in the space of four years, and is expected to achieve double-digit growth in 2003," said Tom Yusef, Chairman, FFG Hillebrand.

Jones joins FFG Hillebrand from GCA-Matsolex while Saward, who has been with the company since 1983, was previously supervisor in the Italian Department.
