Aventics is pleased to announce the appointment of Brian Hurley as General Manager Aventics UK. He will be responsible for the expansion of the pneumatic engineering company in the United Kingdom. Heading a growing team, one of his first projects was to lead the relocation of Aventics UK into the new facility in Milton Keynes.

Formerly part of the Rexroth Group, Aventics established a new company and brand in 2014 and is now independently operating or active in over 40 countries around the globe.

“Brian Hurley is a seasoned industry expert and we are very pleased to have him on board. He brings a sharp business acumen, strong leadership skills and hands-on know-how in pneumatic, fluid and electro-mechanical engineering to our company,” says Paul Cleaver, CEO of Aventics.

Before joining Aventics, Brian Hurley was with both globally and privately owned companies, including Gates Hose & Connectors, KV Pneumatics, and Parker Hannifin. He held a number of senior leadership positions for more than 14 years, and was a managing director and general manager since 2008.

“I am excited to join Aventics especially at this stage, whilst we are launching our new valve series ES05. Due to its clever design and simplicity, this series will be a true game changer for our sales partners around the world. It will enable them to react quickly and independently. Aventics is one of the world’s leading pneumatic engineering companies. It is a new brand, but with long tradition and over 150 years of pneumatic history “Mr Hurley says.
