Alfa Laval Appoints First UK Marine Division Manager

By Joel Davies -

Alfa Laval has announced the appointment of Tristan Matthews to the role of Head of Marine Division for the UK & Ireland as the company commits its support to sustainability in shipping.

Alfa Laval is a provider of heat transfer, centrifugal separation and fluid handling solutions in the areas of Energy, Marine, and Food & Water. Alfa Laval’s technologies are dedicated to purifying, refining, and reusing materials, promoting more responsible use of natural resources.

This strategic appointment represents the appointment of the first dedicated Marine Division Manager in the UK and Ireland region by Alfa Laval. In the new role, Matthews will hold responsibility for driving partnerships with UK customers in the marine industry with a focus on sustainability, decarbonization, future fuels and alternative technologies.

Matthews originally joined Alfa Laval in 2016 as a Marine Sales Engineer for Alfa Laval Marine Service. His preceding role was Business Unit Manager – Marine Capital Sales, UK & Ireland. Prior to that, Matthews was responsible for the PureBallast Ballast Water Management System (BWMS) technology in the UK and Ireland.

Matthews commented: “Having worked in the marine industry throughout my entire 27+ year career, starting with an apprenticeship at age 16, I have incredible passion to always search for better ways to help our customers and will lean on my broad range of experience to achieve that. I believe the drive for sustainability and decarbonisation is the right thing for our industry to do. Having been through a few transformational changes in various parts of the marine industry in my time, myself and my team are looking forward to helping our customers reach this dynamic and ever-changing industry.

“The changes facing the marine industry now are nothing short of transformational. These are not decarbonisation trends, but new directions. Alfa Laval continues to support our customers, as we have through the last 100 years with the best knowledge, advice, and equipment. The unique aspect of the marine industry is that the assets are moving, and this is where our combination of a global brand, physical local presence, combined with our ever-increasing digital presence means we can coordinate support like never before. We can already provide connected solutions to our customers, host hybrid physical/digital meetings, and provide 24/7/365 support for our products – and this is only the beginning”.
