The remit includes customer care and business development across Ireland with a particular emphasis on supporting and developing OEM business as well as delivering process control systems. Bürkert aims to grow into several markets aided by the recent release of new technologies, such as the FLOwave surface acoustic wave flowmeter, and Des will spearhead the company’s development in Ireland.
Des comes to Bürkert with 10 years’ experience within process engineering. He has extensive knowledge of process control and instrumentation with five years at the Dublin headquarters of established distributor, Manotherm. Prior to joining Bürkert, Des was a sales engineer at Atlas Copco covering the Republic of Ireland across the company’s Compressor Technique and Vacuum divisions.

There’s an extraordinary wealth of expertise within the company from application support to research and development to manufacturing, and I’m excited at the prospect of supporting our customers to maximise their applications.”
