Paul Burton visits the CEIA Factory in Italy for the first time

Paul is the most recent addition to the MDS family off the back of a fantastic 2018 for the company. He has been known to MDS for a while and we are delighted to have him join us as a Regional Sales Manager, focusing on the South of England.

In May 2019 Paul joined our Sales and Marketing Director, David Hale, on a visit to the CEIA Headquarters in Arezzo, Italy where he was able to meet the CEIA team face to face. While he was there Paul was able to join a full factory tour, allowing him to see how and where each metal detector is made as well as taking part in some product training directly from the team at CEIA.

“I can truly say I was blown away by the whole experience. From the reception on my arrival, right the way through every part of manufacture. From the testing of circuit boards (which are all designed and produced in house) to the bending and fabrication of steel metal (made from the very highest of standards). You can clearly see why CEIA are so great at what they do.

Understanding how the R&D of metal detectors for the military has led to the creation of technology used in the metal detectors for the food industry was fascinating.

What was so clear, is how everyone works as one team at CEIA, giving the most welcome feeling that I have ever experienced within my working career – I could see clearly how passionate CEIA are and how important it is for them, as a family owned business, to protect their business partner’s reputation in terms of inspection.”

Paul will be joining MDS at the PPMA Total show later this year, make sure you pop over to stand D14 to meet him.
