Barnsley-based Experia, the sensory equipment specialist, has appointed Peter Saunders as Managing Director as the business looks set to expand.

Barnsley-based Experia, the sensory equipment specialist, has appointed Peter Saunders as Managing Director as the business looks set to expand.

Peter will lead the business, which last year celebrated its 10th anniversary, as it grows its product range and increases its market presence following a turnover of £1.8million in 2015, which the company aims to increase by 20 per cent this year.

Experia designs, manufactures and installs sensory equipment to aid sensory development and works with schools, hospitals and specialist care centres across the country to create multisensory environments to enable users to develop their sensory skills. These include the company’s exclusive product, the Multisensory Interactive Learning Environment (MILE), a multi-sensory learning experience which can be tailored to the needs of the individual regardless of age or ability.

The company is also the preferred supplier for leading sports charities The Lord’s Taverners and Wooden Spoon, which give disadvantaged and disabled young people opportunities to participate in sport.

Before joining Experia, Peter held senior positions in the manufacturing and engineering markets and is regarded as an expert in analysing business and process performance to enhance outputs. His roles spanned the UK, Europe, Turkey and The USA. As Managing Director of Experia, Peter will oversee the company’s growth and continued expansion across the UK and internationally, building upon its presence in the American market and increasing orders from the Middle East.

Peter Saunders, Managing Director of Experia, said:

I am very pleased to be appointed Managing Director at Experia and to be working in a market I care passionately about. I am looking forward to the challenge of leading the business through the next stage of its growth and development.

Working with the team to deliver potentially life-changing opportunities to our clients and in an industry with such a strong social conscience is extremely important to me, both professionally and personally, and I don’t think I could have been presented with a more exciting opportunity than this.

Jessica Brown, Occupational Therapist, said:

I have had the pleasure to be involved with Experia for many years as an Occupational Therapist. Not only as a user of their multi-sensory equipment with the children I have worked with, but also as an advisor to help them better the equipment and uses of for their users. It is a dedicated company that thrives on getting things right for all that use their equipment. It is not just about selling a product for them, but crafting the best product it can to then share with their users!

Experia is the UK’s number one designer, manufacturer and installer of sensory equipment, creating products to assist those with sensory development. The company works with health professionals, teachers and parents to create tailored packages to enable individuals to develop their sensory needs.
