Neal Foster – New Senior Sales Manager for Hillstone Loadbanks

Editorial in WIP magazine

Neal Foster (41) is the newly-appointed Senior Sales Manager for  Hillstone Loadbanks, the UK-based company which has established an international reputation for its design, manufacture and rental operations involving  AC & DC load banks to customers  in Europe, the Middle East and in Asia.  

Paul Smethurst,  Managing Director of Hillstone Products, told WIP:  "Neal Foster is a professional who brings with him a wealth of knowledge about loadbank technology and a unique understanding of the engineering aspects of the business. We are very pleased to have on our team."

Neal himself has 25 years' experience in mechanical and electrical  engineering and began his career as a mechanical engineer for a small engineer firm in Suffolk, before joining the Royal Navy as a marine engineer. A former Lead Engineer with Stiell Facilities Ltd,  where he was responsible for the electrical infrastructure of a large telecommunications company's data centre, he went on to work with Emerson Network Power as the UPS Technical Supervisor, before being promoted to Technical Service Sales Manager, gaining a wealth of experience in testing of UPS and data Centre. He has worked closely with clients on IST, Black Building Testing, Commissioning and SATs, for both new installs and maintenance.

Comments Neal: "This appointment is a new challenge for me in a field where I have worked for most of my professional life. Today's load banks - in particular - have a key role to play within data centres, being used for testing black starts generators, UPS systems and standby batteries, in addition to HVAC. Hillstone has rightly earned an international reputation for reacting quickly and efficiently to requests for rental equipment, thanks to our own fleet of vehicles which provides an unparalleled nationwide delivery and installation service to meet the requirements of our data centre customers.”
