CO TYRONE based kitchen and bedroom design and manufacturer BA has appointed a new chief executive.

Former former Formica Europe boss Peter Rush will take over the role on March 1 2020.

The kitchen and bedroom door specialist, which was set up by twin brothers Brian and Kieran McCracken in 1990, now employs 263 people across sites in Cookstown, Doncaster and Rotherham.

Brian McCracken said the new chief executive comes with an impressive background.

“Peter has particularly strong experience of working across Europe and in the Far East having worked with a number of BA Components’ major customers and distributors in the UK,” he said.

BA Components was equity-backed in 2017 by Netherlands-based H2, a move which the company founders said has supported their development strategy, and boosted investment and product development.
