Middleby Corporation has promoted Chris Jones from managing director of Lincat to group managing director.

As of yesterday (1 October), Jones has taken over the reins of Imperial Machine Company (IMC), Britannia and Lincat, following the departure of Steve Witt last month.

He said: "It's been a fantastic first year at the helm of Lincat and I'm immensely proud of everything that we have achieved.

“My next challenge is to grow sales and profits at IMC and Britannia, through the development of new products, the expansion into new markets and an increase in market share.

“I'm excited about my new role and what the future holds for IMC and Britannia."

European managing director of parent company Middleby Corporation, Najib Maalouf, commented: "Middleby and I are thankful for Steve's contributions. He was instrumental in introducing leading solutions such as the Waste Station, in developing new markets for IMC and in consolidating Britannia with IMC. I will miss him and wish him well.

"Middleby has heavily invested in and will continue to support IMC as it scales its food and solid waste management solutions.

"Under Chris Jones, Lincat has made great strides. I am pleased to see a marked progress in all organs of this company and look forward to the introduction of its innovative equipment."
