Paxton Promotes Blair Bowen to Divisional Director of Manufacturing

Paxton has promoted Blair Bowen to divisional director of Manufacturing to oversee the exciting expansion of their manufacturing operations in the coming years.

Adam Stroud, CEO at Paxton said, “Having started with Paxton a year ago, Blair has already become an important and integral member of Paxton’s senior management team.

“It has been a busy year for our manufacturing team, spearheading advances in efficiency, introducing plastic injection molding, and making positive cultural improvements.”

Currently Paxton’s manufacturing facilities operate to meet ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 standards, ensuring they operate to the highest level in both quality and environmental responsibility. Under Bowen’s guidance, the factory has broken production records, hitting a new high of $8.9 million worth of products made in a single month. There are several big projects planned for Bowen and his team in 2023, including further increases in manufacturing efficiency, facility expansion, and continuous team development to enable future promotions.

Blair said, “We are investing in new technology and new machinery, which will bring us even more efficiency. We are working towards producing our first injection molded parts. This will improve our self-sufficiency on products that we manufacture such as readers and cabinets, Blair said.

“Company and team culture will also be a key focus area at our manufacturing facilities. We are looking to create a robust and inspirational training strategy this year to ensure we keep investing in our people.”

Prior to joining Paxton, Bowen spent 12 years working in a blue-chip large corporation environment. He sees Paxton as a growing organization with the potential for personal development.

“I came to Paxton to gain and expand responsibilities and range of skills,” Bowen said. “Being promoted to divisional director is an incredibly rewarding step on this journey and reaffirms the reasons I joined.”

“We are pleased to see Blair moving further with his career goals. We look forward to the team’s continuing effort in manufacturing and delivering world-class security products,” Stroud said.
