SATRA hires new head of engineering
David Billington brings more than three decades of experience in advanced technologies.
Following SATRA divisional manager of engineering Peter Allen’s recent retirement, we are pleased to announce the appointment of David Billington as his successor. David has an extensive track record of improving business and manufacturing operations, and in his new role he will be responsible for the general management and operation of SATRA’s engineering and test equipment business units, providing our multi-disciplinary customers with market-leading solutions. Having over 30 years of experience in the designing and manufacturing of advanced technologies, David has held a number of senior industry positions during his career. These have helped him to gain an in-depth knowledge of production processes, operations and distribution, in addition to the direction of cross-functional multi-site teams, including offshore units.
“Having an electronics design background and a passion for innovative product design, I believe that there is an opportunity to grow SATRA’s test equipment business with market-leading solutions which meet the demands of our customers and support the requirements of SATRA’s membership,” he said.
