A Warm Welcome to Our New Team Members

As part of our continued growth, Shayne Ford and Louise Blunden have recently joined the Protolan team.

Shayne Ford joins us as Senior Project Manager, bringing with him over 30 years’ experience in the beverage industry.  He has spent the last 27 years with a major drink supplier in the UK and international market, while having many roles as an Engineering project manager, operational factory management, and transformational business project delivery, in both the UK and international setting.

Coming from a background in Electrical / Electronic Engineering before PC were on every desk. I share my house with my wife of 20 plus years and daughter 19 doing a mechanical engineering degree and the dog (Thor) . In my spare time, my passion is vehicles having a number of Land Rover Defender to name a few and I’m in the process with my Daughter doing a nut and bolt renovation of a Triumph Spitfire from 1972 which she has purchased. Really pleased to have joined Protolan and looking forward to working closely with members of the team.

Louise Blunden has joined the team as a Project Engineering Manager, with over 20 years of process engineering and project management experience gained as a Chemical Engineer within the food and chemical industries. She is looking forward to working with the Protolan team in delivering food manufacturing excellence for a range of projects.

Both are dog lovers, so will fit right in with our pet mad team!


Shayne and Louise will be hitting the floor running, supporting us on major food manufacturing projects for our clients.

Welcome aboard to you both.
