John Cownley: celebrating twenty years at Solving UK

Solving Ltd was founded in 1999 as a subsidiary of the Finnish parent company, Ab Solving Oy, and John Cownley joined at the same time to look after all our activities in the UK.

In the 20 years since then, many interesting projects have been completed and Solving Finland is very happy still to have John on board. He also seems satisfied with his role and gives this insight into his time with us so far:

“Having already been in the material handling industry for many years when I joined Solving, I felt confident that it was the right move. Scandinavian manufacturing, and Finnish engineering in particular, is renowned for innovation, quality and development.
The products coming out of Ab Solving Oy were familiar to me and although it took some time to take the plunge, I was sure that representing a Finnish product in the UK would be a mutually satisfying experience.

It has worked out even better than I could have expected. For someone dedicated to mechanical and electrical engineering combined with the world of material handling, I can’t imagine a more rewarding industry to be in or a more satisfying company to work with than Solving!”
