MVIS & Bartco UK | Promotion announcement keeps culture going
Promoting from within is something that MVIS and Bartco UK is extremely proud of.
Understanding that its team is at the forefront of the company’s fast-growing business, MVIS and Bartco UK is always looking for ways that it can offer personal and professional development to all of its workforce.
With this being said, the group is proud to announce that former Technical Development Supervisor, Tom Hooton has been promoted to Research and Development Manager.
Joining the business in 2014, Tom has not only grown within the company, but has also been instrumental in ground-breaking changes.
Whether it’s developing new solutions, such as the Original Bartco HD Compact unit, or finding ways of improving the company’s Intelligent Transport Units and integrations with MVIS’ warehouse team, the company knows that Tom is always at hand to pass on his knowledge and experience to any department, having time and appreciation for all of his co-workers.
Tom began his journey with the group as Technical Support and has continuously developed within his role over the past 7 years. Seeing this new promotion as a way of further investment in his career, Tom has taken on a level 5 apprenticeship in management to see himself excel in this new managerial role. His initiative, determination and ability to think outside of the box has seen Tom develop his knowledge in using CAD software and with this has developed new, bespoke solutions like MVIS’ most recent solution, the works Egress, soon to be available for hire through MVIS Ltd.
Holding his on-site cards such as his CSCS and Highways England Passport, Tom has a hands-on approach when it comes to understanding the entire range of the company’s units and this means that he has been able to improve and develop some of the most technically advanced solutions with Bartco UK, with an example being the highly versatile SIP unit.
Over the past year, Covid-19 has not stopped Tom and the rest of the team from going above and beyond to provide the best for customers. Back in June 2020, the latest version of the HD Compact VMS Unit, providing additional benefits such as solar power and a new highly extended maintenance-free run-time. This project was overseen by Tom and the Technical department.
After speaking with Tom about his new job role, he stated:
“I am very grateful for the opportunity and am looking forward to the challenge that It will bring. I also appreciate the trust that has been put in me as this company has been so good to me, putting trust and giving me opportunities that I will forever be grateful for.
“This is my proudest achievement to date in my career and I can’t wait to prove myself in the role.”
