Bruce Wilson Appointed Senior VP, Ametek Ultra Precision Technologies

Mr. Wilson was named an AMETEK Vice President and General Manager in 2004, following the acquisition by AMETEK of Taylor Hobson.

“Bruce has a tremendous record of achievement at AMETEK. He has been extremely successful in building our Ultra Precision Technologies businesses into a significant growth platform in this attractive and technologically sophisticated market,” states David A. Zapico, AMETEK Chief Executive Officer.
Mr. Wilson served as Chief Executive Officer of Taylor Hobson from 1999 until its acquisition by AMETEK. Prior to that, he served as Managing Director of Datapaq, Ltd. from 1992 to 1999.
Mr. Wilson holds both Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degrees in Engineering from the University of Cape Town, South Africa, as well as a Master in Business Administration degree from Cranfield University in the United Kingdom.
