Scanwel Group Announces new CEO


We are delighted to announce the appointment of Adam Bartlett as the new CEO of Scanwel and Palatine Precision.  Adam is a highly experienced leader within the Ultra High Vacuum industry, bringing a range of skills across engineering, operations and sales, with relationships across Europe.


Adam commented: “I am delighted to be joining a business with the ambition and opportunity of Scanwel and Palatine Precision.  The existing focus on quality and customer service and a committed, talented team of colleagues provide the ideal foundation for the future growth of the business for the benefit of our customers, people and partners.”


David Freeman has stepped down from his role as Managing Director with immediate effect, remaining as a shareholder of the business.  David joined Scanwel in 2019, successfully overseeing the move to new manufacturing facilities in 2020, the acquisition of Palatine Precision in 2021 and significant investment in the growth of Scanwel’s sales team and manufacturing capability.


Everyone here at Scanwel and Palatine Precision wish David all the very best for the future and express their sincerest thanks for his leadership since 2019.
