Dales are delighted to announce Andy Purdy’s appointment as Managing Director with Karl Prosser becoming Chairman, both effective from 1st January 2023.


Andy Purdy, Managing Director

The Board and Shareholders are delighted that Andy accepted the appointment as Managing Director. It was decided that it was the right time to offer Andy the role of Managing Director due to his success as Operations Director since 2014.

Andy completely understands the workings of Dales, having worked in various Technical, Sales & Production roles throughout his time with us. Andy joined Dales Fabrications Ltd when Frank Dales was still Managing Director and has seen many changes since then. Andy’s loyalty and commitment to Dales is unquestionable with nearly 30 years’ service.

As Managing Director, Andy is responsible for the day-to-day running of the company, and we are certain he is the right person to take the reins from Karl.


Karl Prosser, Chairman

Karl Prosser has accepted the role of Chairman.

Karl has been involved at a leadership level with Dales since his appointment as Company Secretary back in 2009 and facilitated the company’s successful growth since his appointment as Managing Director in 2013,

The role of Chairman is a consultative role, involved more with strategic goals with less time spent on the daily management of the company.
