The Directors of International Syalons (Newcastle) Limited have great pleasure in announcing that Mr. Ian Denton and Mr. Nick Fecitt have been appointed Directors of the Company with immediate effect.

Ian, who joins the Board as Operations Director, started his career in research. He was appointed as Quality Manager when the Company was formed and was responsible for the Company becoming one of the first in the UK to achieve ISO 9001 status. He was appointed Operations Manager in 2005 and has been instrumental in driving the Company forward and establishing its present position of leadership in sialon ceramic engineering, through continually improving standards and customer service. Ian will continue to be responsible for all aspects of sales and production.

Nick, who joins the Board as Technical Director, is another founder member of the Company's staff and, leading his research and development team, has been highly successful in developing the Company's wide range of Syalon ceramics through material technology and process design. He is internationally recognised as one of the world's leading experts on sialon ceramics and maintains relationships with a number of prestigious research establishments, so as to maintain the Company's position in the forefront of advanced ceramic engineering.

Managing Director, Tony Mitchell, says "We are extremely fortunate to have Ian and Nick on the Board to continue the Company's growth through innovation and customer service. Most of our customers are already aware of and benefit from the problem-solving skills that are available through Ian, Nick and their respective teams. This is our way forward."
