Vert Rotors appoints new head of R&D

12 December, 2017

Edinburgh-based company Vert Rotors, manufacturer of very small but powerful air compressors, has appointed Geoff Kermode as head of Research and Development.

Kermode, an expert in the design, development and implementation of high-value manufactured products, has joined the company to drive Vert’s technology towards a range of significant applications with clear potential benefits across a wide range of industrial sectors.

He brings with him valuable experience from his time at Bosch Rexroth, where he managed multinational projects and delivered substantial improvements to their hydraulic motors. Latterly, he worked at MacTaggart Scott & Co, where he led projects on bespoke high-precision equipment for specialised naval applications.

Kermode commented: “Vert Rotors pushes boundaries every day, and we have an exciting range of blue chip companies knocking at the door. It’s a strong team, and I look forward to helping them produce compressors in the most robust, safe and cost-effective way.”

Vert Rotors has developed a new kind of conical screw compressor that is more compact and powerful than any other device of this size. Their compressors operate at extremely low levels of noise and vibration, while remaining incredibly powerful. The company’s range of air compressors is designed for aviation, space, medical and other high-performance applications where dimensions and weight are crucial considerations.

Olly Dmitriev, CEO at Vert Rotors, said: “We are delighted that Geoff has joined the company. He understands the significance of our industry-first technology, and shares our passion to innovate and shake up the long established and somewhat stale compressor industry.
