Formally studying mechanical engineering in the petro-chemical industry, Robert moved into the powder-handling field in the late 1980’s, where he continued his academic studies in management, health & safety and election to both the IoD and Chartered Management Institute.

Michel Podevyn, Chairman of Spiroflow Group, comments, “We are delighted to have Robert Hudson join us as MD of our UK operation. Cathy Podevyn has done an excellent job of running the business for the past 3 years but is eager to get back to concentrating more of her time on the Sales and Marketing activities. I am optimistic that with Robert on board and Cathy able to devote more time to her sales role, we can move an already successful business forward to realise its full potential for the benefit of everyone and, in particular, the great team that we have at Clitheroe - without whom we would not be where we are today. In addition to my position as Chairman of the Group, I shall continue my role as CEO of our US operation Spiroflow Systems Inc.
