Ace Aquatec has expanded its North America team with two new senior appointments making the new Canada office the company’s fourth international base outside the UK in addition to Australia, Chile and Norway.
The new division will be led by Ace Aquatec regional manager, Sam Bowman, who previously held senior management positions at Mowi and Cermaq. Mr Bowman joins Dr Jenny Bouwsema PhD, director of scientific research, and fellow new recruit Adrian Hulme, product engineer and design consultant.
“Over the last year, we have taken the decision to grow Ace Aquatec’s presence internationally by making our technology and research knowledge more accessible to fish farmers across the globe,” said Nathan Pyne-Carter, chief executive at Ace Aquatec.
“We’re continuing to see the growing demand for more productive, ethical and sustainable methods of fish farming, so expanding our team in North America was the next logical step in our strategy,” he added.
Sam Bowman, regional manager, added, “We are a nation known for providing some of the world’s best quality fish so it’s great to be working alongside Ace Aquatec who have an extensive background in providing some of the best aquaculture technology in the world.”
Last year, Dundee-based Ace Aquatec announced the opening of its Chile and Norway divisions as part of its global growth strategy.
