OMS Appoints James Buston as Client Solutions Executive

UK-based specialist measurement technology company Optical Metrology Services (OMS) Ltd is pleased to announce the appointment of James Buston as the company's Client Solutions Executive.

Based at OMS' UK office in Bishop's Stortford, James will be responsible for seeking out new business and potential applications for OMS technology, on a global basis. The role will include sales, marketing and business development, as well as attending a variety of international trade fairs and exhibitions.

Prior to his new role, James spent six years working for a UK-based laser cutting & marking company, initially as a laser technician, but more recently as Technical Sales Manager. Despite very difficult market conditions, James helped his previous employer achieve outstanding sales growth over the last couple of years, personally achieving sales in excess of £1 million this year.

James also has experience in exhibition management, technical training and in providing teaching laser applications and theory to both academic and industrial clients.

James Buston commented: "There are lots of similarities between laser cutting and marking technologies and laser-based pipe measurement systems. I look forward to helping OMS achieve significant sales growth by developing new markets for its products and services."

OMS is a specialist measurement technology company that provides measurement services and precision measurement systems to the oil and gas industry. A key focus for the company is in the dimensional measurement of oil and gas pipes or other similar structures such as aero engines, process industry tubes or manufactured cylindrical objects, where dimensions are critical.
