Ian Wilson BEng MSc
Managing Director and Lean expert, Ian Wilson, started his career in the automotive industry over 40 years ago by completing a Toolmaking apprenticeship. He then moved into Production Management in a number of differing industries, each a progression in terms of responsibilities and accountability. During this period, Ian gained a Bachelor of Engineering degree in Mechanical Engineering to add a professional qualification to his growing experience and knowledge. During a career spent wholly in Manufacturing, he has gained vast experience and has held senior managerial positions within various industries.
Since 2003, following successful completion of the prestigious Masters Degree in Lean Operations at Cardiff University, Ian has been primarily working on the government sponsored Manufacturing Advisory Service contract which provided consultancy services to a diverse range of manufacturing companies. Ian also spent two years working on Commercial consultancy projects with large multi-site organisations, where his results driven, hands-on approach has enhanced the performance of both people and processes across all areas.
In 2016, with over fifteen years’ experience of implementing continuous improvement methodologies across a wide variety of industrial sectors and a proven track record of achieving results, Ian decided to take the massive step of setting up his own business. IW Process Solutions Ltd was borne and through it, Ian continues to deliver transformational advice and support to manufacturing companies of all sizes.
