Peter Hartley joins Yamato

Peter has a range of experience in production line and packaging. He joins Yamato from Dimaco, a vision inspection company, where he was responsible for service, design and technical support.

Prior to working for Dimaco Peter worked for 31 years in a number of senior roles at Lock Inspection Systems.

He said: “I started at Lock Inspection Systems as an apprentice working through various departments including quality control and a period as service manager. Latterly I worked as operations director, a role I held for several years, the latter as part of the Loma – Lock Inspection Group following the acquisition by ITW.

“I will be assisting the Yamato technical support team to demonstrate that Yamato has a responsive service and can specify and quote for customers’ requirements, accurately and quickly. I am also looking forward to the new factory where new production principles can be introduced as we strive for class-leading delivery and efficiency.”

Commenting on Peter’s appointment, Yamato commercial operations manager Andrea Spencer said: “We are delighted to welcome Peter to the Yamato team. He brings a wealth of experience in technical support with him.

"He will be assisting Mark James with developing specifications and quotations for metal detectors and checkweighers, either in combined production line solutions or as individual machines.”

Family man Peter has been married for 25 years and has two children. In his spare time he enjoys mountain biking in the Yorkshire Moors and restoring and driving classic cars.

“I’m currently in the final stages of restoring an Austin Healey 3000 which replaces a Triumph TR4. I like to get them into good, but not necessarily concourse, condition so that I can enjoy driving them as intended.”
