BCAS appoints new president

15 February, 2017

The British Compressed Air Society (BCAS) has appointed James Maziak, managing director of Maziak Compressor Services, as its 56th president. He takes over the role from Andy Jones, managing director of Mattei Compressors, who has held the position for the past two years. Maziak will continue to ensure that the society evolves to meet the needs of both its members and compressed air end-users.


A Board member for the past five years, and chairman of the Distributors’ Committee for the past four, Maziak’s business has represented different manufacturing brands over the years; giving him a broad range of experience within the industry, from manufacturing and distribution to the end user.

Maziak said of his appointment: “It is a great honour to take on the BCAS presidency, and even more so as I am only the second distributor member to become president in its 85-year history.

“The next two years will see momentous change as the Brexit process starts. In the face of this, BCAS has a great responsibility to continue to deliver value to its members as the only technical trade association representing the compressed air industry in the UK. Most importantly, we need to ensure that the end users of compressed air see the value of dealing with a BCAS member.”

Vanda Jones, executive director for BCAS, commented: “We are finding that customers are demanding more efficient and innovative compressed air solutions to help meet their environmental obligations and reduce cost of ownership. In this energy- and cost-conscious environment, BCAS fills an increasingly important role; not only in supporting its members’ interests but also in advising manufacturers, distributors, service agents and end users on best practice and changes to legislation.”
