Equipment manufacturer Loma Systems has appointed Ian Hogg as its new regional sales manager for Scotland.

Loma said Hogg brought a wealth of food industry sales experience to his new role, having previously spent more than 12 years at Stevens Traceability Systems, initially as area sales manager for north-east England and Scotland, and latterly as national account manager for large accounts and area manager for Ireland.

“I’m excited to join a well-established, quality driven business like Loma,” said Hogg. “The company’s inspection equipment, which includes metal detection, check-weighing and X-ray systems, is second to none, and always backed up with first-class service delivery. Plus, being permanently based in Scotland will ensure that customers continue to receive the high level of service they have come to expect of Loma.”

Loma’s sales and service director Ian Craig said: “We’re delighted to welcome Ian to our UK team. Scotland is an important market for us, where we have seen increasing demand from all aspects of the food industry, and I am confident that Ian has the skills and knowledge to help both existing customers and new ones.”
