Fine Tubes, a leading manufacturer and global distributor of precision tubes for critical applications, is delighted to announce the appointment of Adrian Salle in the new role of sales manager.

Having worked in more than 40 different countries, he is also highly accomplished in leading teams that are both multi-disciplinary and multi-cultural.
Commenting on his new appointment, Adrian said: "I was very much impressed by the technologically advanced products manufactured by Fine Tubes at the headquarters in Plymouth. With the support of the new owners, the company has great potential for growth. I’m excited by the prospect of helping Fine Tubes build on their already impressive customer base and selling the innovative products to new markets."
"Living in such a beautiful part of the country within close proximity to the ocean was an obvious attraction to moving to Plymouth."
Brian Mercer, global sales and marketing director of Fine Tubes, added: "As the business extends its reach to the global market, we have been excited to see how our offering of high specification products combined with service and supply flexibility has engaged with the needs of our customer.
The appointment of Adrian Salle brings us significant amounts of global professional experience which particularly includes Australasia, China, Middle East and Latin America.
