McArthur BDC expands management team and appoints new regional sales representative

Scunthorpe, Lincolnshire: 17 October 2023 – Following the recent acquisitions of DMI Mechanical Engineers and McArthur BDC Ltd, McArthur BDC is expanding its management team with the appointment of Stephen Scott as sales and marketing manager and Pete Robertson as finance director. Harry Henderson replaces Scott as regional sales representative for the north of England and Scotland.

“As the company enters its next stage of growth and development it is important to ensure that we have the right people overseeing how we all successfully move forward and maintain our market-leading position within the post-harvest equipment sector,” said John McArthur, managing director, McArthur BDC

In his previous role as a part of the McArthur BDC sales team Scott, who now heads up sales and marketing, has gained a deep understanding of the post-harvest requirements of both farmers and commercial grain operators. Before joining McArthur BDC his previous agricultural experience included holding the position of sales and technical manager for a company specialising in post-harvest storage systems.

“I have learnt what good customer service looks like and the value it delivers,” said Scott. “The McArthur BDC team has many years of experience around all things grain handling and has unrivalled grain handling expertise. We are able to quickly understand a customer’s individual requirements and then design and work with our partners to successfully install post-harvest solutions that not only meet customers’ expectations but exceed them.”

Scott added: “As we move forward our sales and marketing strategy will focus on driving continued growth in our market share and highlight the huge value of our team’s depth of experience and expertise across the post-harvest sector.”

Pete Robertson joins McArthur BDC to strengthen the management team as an experienced finance director. With previous expertise in the food industry, he has worked closely with farmers and has extensive knowledge of the agriculture sector as a whole.

Moving into a new role, which became vacant as Scott took up his management role, Harry Henderson has been appointed as McArthur BDC’s regional sales representative for the north of England and Scotland.

Henderson has been with the company for some time and, as an engineering technician working across McArthur BDC’s entire range of post-harvest equipment, has gained invaluable experience in understanding the specific harvest challenges faced by farmers north of the border and throughout the rest of the UK.

“These key additions to our team will ensure our continued growth in both existing and new markets and importantly, support the launch of exciting and innovative new post-harvest products planned for 2024,” concluded John McArthur.
