Scanstrut appoints new design director
Outdoor marine equipment manufacturer Scanstrut has appointed Nigel Smith as design director in a newly created role.
Smith started his 30-year career with design consultancies before moving into the recreational marine industry, working for Spinlock and, more recently, Lewmar where he held the role of head of design for ten years.
Many of Smith’s products have gained patents and prestigious design awards, such as a British Design Award, a variety of DAME category wins, and numerous Pittman Innovation Awards.
“Scanstrut has always presented themselves in a highly professional manner with a strong customer focus,” says Smith. “They have been on my watchlist for many years. They consistently design, manufacture, and deliver innovative products, beautifully presented and backed-up by an agile, young, and dynamic team, I’m very excited to see what we can achieve together.”
Scanstrut CEO, Tom Reed, comments: “We’re delighted to have Nigel join our talented team of designers and engineers. His experience, industry knowledge and passion for developing innovative, high-performing products will fit perfectly with our ethos and ambitions here at Scanstrut. He and George Bowles, our head of design, will be working closely together to deliver our new product roadmap and the results will be very exciting to see.”
