Harvard Engineering, world leader in the design, development and manufacture of energy saving solutions for the lighting industry, has appointed an operations director in order to continuously improve the company’s processes, whilst simultaneously managing performance within all aspects of day to day operations.
Andrew Winter has more than seventeen years experience working in the manufacturing sector. A graduate Manufacturing Engineer, Andrew previously worked for Pentair (formerly Tyco Flow Control), where he led the Global Supply Chain.
