Idrees who graduated 18 months ago studied mechanical and power plant systems engineering at Glasgow Caledonian University and his technical understanding, along with the training provided by FB Chain will help him find solutions for customers who are increasingly not only looking to replace chain but increase working life while reducing operating costs.

Darran Green FB chain Head of Sales said “Our Swedish heritage means that the Timber Industry is a key market for us and as the majority of the major UK forestry is in Scotland and northern England it is a key geographic area for us. The addition of a Glasgow based team member shows our commitment to supporting and growing our customer base in these markets and areas.

Idrees said “I am thrilled to be joining FB Chain and be a part of a business that has been growing and has the potential to grow on a yearly basis. The last few months have been very intensive with lots of training and traveling, FB Chain UK manufacturing site is impressive and seeing conveyor chain being made at FB Finland opened my mind to how many different ways we can improve a conveyor chain’s performance.”  

During his spare time, Idrees plays in a weekly football league at his hometown in Glasgow. He is also part of a campaign to stop IRN-BRU changing their recipe.
