As a result, the following people from ECP (UK) will be joining DCC (Europe) Ltd. after the transition and will continue operating from the Manchester area:
• George Hughes: general sales manager, Europe.
• Andy Fenlon: sales manager, UK.
• Kevin Smith: technical sales and product manager, Inks.

In addition, Bruce Howie has joined DCC as senior R&D chemist, and will be relocated to Toronto, Canada.
