AIMS looks to expand global markets with new Sales Director

October 29, 2013

Advanced Interactive Materials Science Limited (AIMS), based in Peterborough, UK, has appointed a new Sales Director to promote the company’s unique Sagittite® range of hard wearing nickel based alloys to a growing global customer base.


Paul Young joins AIMS as Sales Director

Paul Young, 53,  joined AIMS from Baker Perkins and has over 35 years’ experience working with the company’s target customers. “I have joined AIMS at an exciting time, with so much opportunity for us to build on at home and abroad. Sagittite® has a growing reputation in the marketplace as a hard wearing and corrosion resistant solution for machine manufacturers, supplying customers across the globe,” stated Young.

AIMS was founded by inventor and technical director Geoffrey Archer 15 years ago, who developed the Sagittite® range using powdered metal chemistry and incorporating it with the process of Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP).

“Our near-net shape capability, which uses powder to form a solid structure and enables components to be manufactured without the need for second stage machining, offers a great opportunity for sales growth. At the leading edge of manufacturing technology, the technique enhances the saving of energy, materials and labour costs, whilst allowing complex structures to be made from this family of metal matrix composite material,” added Young.

In 2012 additional capital was obtained from private investors to enable AIMS to develop its business further. “Since the injection of capital and additional business resource we have been able to build on the foundations of developing and patenting world leading technologies and opening up new business channels,” stated Archer.
