Posted: 12 Oct 2015 05:00 AM PDT

Professor Sir Jim McDonald, one of the UK’s leading engineering academics is to lead the Group’s newly created Technology Advisory Board. 

The board, which includes highly regarded experts from a variety of disciplines, will ensure Weir continues to be at the leading edge of technology development in its chosen industries.

Commenting as the board held its first meeting, Weir Group Chief Executive Keith Cochrane said:

“The Weir Group was founded in 1871, at the height of the last industrial revolution, by pioneering engineers who invented new ways to make their customers more efficient.  Today, the rapid pace of technology development brings significant opportunities for a global engineering Group which has innovation at its core.

“Our technology board, under Sir Jim’s leadership, has been specifically chosen to ensure Weir benefits from expertise from a range of backgrounds, both academic and industrial, and uses that knowledge to continue to succeed in an increasingly complex and connected world.”

Professor Sir Jim McDonald added:

“I am delighted to be leading Weir’s advisory board at such an exciting period of technological development and innovation.   Throughout my career I have seen the benefits of different disciplines and industries working together and sharing insights. 

“The most successful technology and engineering companies are always looking to learn and that will be the main focus of the board’s work: ensuring the best ideas, wherever they are from, are available to Weir’s engineers and its customers.”
