He will take day-to-day control of Kelkay's production facility, ensuring the company's quantity and quality targets are met. He'll be responsible for the company's programme of continuous improvement in manufacturing efficiencies and will introduce new key performance indicators.

Wilson will also implement an advanced, ISO 9001 compliant, quality control system.

He joins Kelkay from paving, block paving and concrete paving specialist, Marshalls, where he worked for nine years. During this time he held the positions of production manager and site manager, managed 200 employees and helped his site win numerous health and safety awards.

Kelkay managing director Antony Harker said: "We're delighted to welcome Jonathan to Kelkay. He's enjoyed great success in our sector and brings skills that will improve performance at individual and team levels. With Jonathan now on board, Kelkay is well placed to sustain its recent fantastic growth and advance to another level."

Kelkay recently made a £1 million investment in new machinery to complete the commissioning of the Pollington, East Yorkshire plant.
