Trio Motion Technology, the motion-first machine solution provider, has appointed Tom Alexander as new company President. The move concludes a transitional hand over period, with Chris Backhouse, Trio’s co-founder and previous Managing Director, stepping down from the role. Fellow Trio co-founder, Roy Bamforth, has also moved from his position of Sales Director to become a Non-Executive Director.
Tom Alexander has led Trio’s global business development since joining the company in 2019. He will also continue his joint role of Chief Strategy Officer for Motion Control at Trio’s parent company, Estun.

The new appointment is the latest in a series of planned developments and growth at Trio following its acquisition in 2017 by Chinese robotics and automation brand Estun Automation. Tom Alexander’s remit is to expand machine solution sales to OEMs and continue supporting the distribution network.
