De Sangosse appoints new UK technical manager

De Sangosse, a European leader in the molluscicides, micro-nutrients and spray enhancers based near Newmarket, has appointed Jon Williams as technical manager.

Jon will take up the role in the New Year when he will work alongside the technical director before succeeding to the role permanently at the end of 2018.

As technical manager, Jon will be central to supporting new product registration through the design and commissioning of field and laboratory trials required by the UK and EU regulators. He will also be a first point of contact for UK customers needing product advice and technical support.

He joins De Sangosse from Greenvale AP where he has served as import technical manager with responsibility for ensuring the company’s network of overseas growers supplied product to the expected quality and volume in accordance with relevant customer specifications. Before joining Greenvale AP, Jon held a series of technical positions with Syngenta and its predecessor companies.

De Sangosse managing director, David Cameron welcomed Jon’s appointment.

“Jon brings valuable technical expertise and experience to De Sangosse and will be an asset to the company and our customers. His experience in new product development and, more recently, in liaising with multiple retailers and the Animal and Plant Health Agency (APHA) will be invaluable to us as we seek to introduce more innovative solutions to the market.”

Jon studied at Reading University where he gained a BSc (Hons) in Soil Science and at Harper Adams where he received a post-graduate diploma in crop protection.
