Chesterfield manufacturing firm promotes former apprentice to sales account manager

Sam Sibert has been promoted to the role of Sales Account Manager for Chesterfield precision manufacturing company CBE+.

Sam, who lives in Chesterfield, previously worked for the company’s precision engineering division as a shop floor machinist. He started with the business five years ago and completed his apprenticeship there before becoming fully qualified as a machinist. 

Fabio Cosenza, Business Development Manager at CBE+ explains:

“We recognised that Sam had that essential understanding of machining components and could combine this with good customer relationships, to become a key member of the sales team. This is a busy and exciting time for our business as we continue to develop new opportunities in the aerospace and automotive sectors and Sam will play a key role in this.”

Sam Sibert said:

“I’m really enjoying my new role as it is great getting out and meeting customers and being able to demonstrate what our capabilities are and how we can deliver the best results for them. What I enjoy most of all is seeing the whole process from the initial enquiry to the product being machined and ready to be despatched, it gives me a great deal of job satisfaction.”

CBE+ is based on Williamthorpe Industrial Park in Chesterfield, in an 80,000 ft2 facility that was originally the base for BG Engineering, a leading subcontractor of precision machined components, which it acquired back in 2017. CBE+ brings together the best in precision machining, electroless nickel plating, gear and artificial lifting equipment along with metal testing.
