The joint venture retains the Maxxium UK name, and its head office, based in Stirling, will have a management team made up of staff from across the Beam and Maxxium organisations.

Supporting Hew Pennell as managing director are:

Peter Sandström, marketing director ;

Mark Riley, commercial operations director (Beam);
