May brings exciting changes for us at Addfield Environmental Systems Ltd as this new month also bring across new leadership. Following many years of continuous growth alongside regular expansion Operations Director Derek Carr is stepping up to take over the position of Managing Director as Steve Lloyd will now be taking the helm as Chief Executive Officer.
Addfield has successfully been supplying agricultural incinerators to the farming sector since its initial inception in 1982. However, it is since being taken over by CEO Steve Lloyd in 2007 that the company began to flourish. Now exporting to more than 110 countries and leading the industry in supplying not only agricultural but medical, aquacultural, and specialist bespoke incinerators alongside pet cremators. Gaining some of the worlds’ most prestigious customers along the way including the NHS, UNICEF, MSF along with many of the worlds largest Farming and Pet Cremation suppliers.
A key component of this growth since 2010 is Derek Carr who has risen through the ranks joining the company as General Manager in 2010. Derek had an immediate impact on the business rising to the role of Production Director in 2015 and then Operations Director in 2018. Derek helped in overseeing the day-to-day operations of the company whilst Steve Lloyd focussed on developing and expanding the High-capacity division which has since become a free-standing business in its own right now known as Addfield Projects.
This development is a great opportunity for Addfield to continue its unprecedented growth within its chosen markets.
“I am very proud of the team here at Addfield, I recognise our growth is down to a clear vision of building the most robust, reliable and thermally efficient incinerators on the market. Every business will have challenges and competition, we have grown because we have direction and a team that accepts this ethos. This is shown with our growth, repeat business and investment into the industry through innovative designs. Starting as the General Manager in 2010 with three team members the journey has been a tough but a rewarding one, I thank Steve for trusting me and the management team with his business, we have a clear plan on growing the business and we are excited to implement these changes in the coming months.” Derek Carr – Managing Director at Addfield
“It has always been the natural progression for Derek to take over the Managing Director’s role within the Addfield Companies. He is well respected and held in very high regard by all our employees, customers, and partners around the world. Derek has played a leading role in the growth and development of Addfield over the years, without him we would not have achieved the level of success that we enjoy today. His continued dedication and commitment to the business its employees and partners makes him the perfect fit to oversee the day-to-day operations and continued growth of the Addfield businesses. I feel proud to be handing over control to such a capable and dedicated young man who has developed and honed his skill base right here at Addfield. I believe my role & responsibilities have naturally evolved into more of the CEO role. I will now be spending the majority of my time refining the development of our business and its departments, working on production efficiencies, profitability, and working closely with the board of Directors on the brand direction.” – Steve Lloyd – Chief Executive Officer Addfield.
