Process engineering company Jord International has announced that Greg Jones (pictured on left) will begin as its new CEO on July 15.

Jones joins the privately-owned, 400-person firm after 17 years at steel company InfraBuild, where he is Executive GM of Distribution & Processing, according to his Linkedin profile.

Jones will replace current CEO Angus Holden, who is to become Executive Chair and will “remain involved in strategic oversight of the business.”

“We know the coming decades will see massive changes and investment in the energy industry. Greg is well placed to deepen Jord’s impact as we pioneer new technologies required for the energy transition,” said Holden (pictured right) in a statement on Tuesday

“One of the things I’m most proud of at Jord is our entrepreneurial culture. I am confident Greg’s people-[oriented] leadership style is a good match to continue inspiring the team.”

According to its corporate brochure, Jord “designs, manufactures, commissions and services bespoke plant and systems” for industries including the energy and resource sectors, with process plants in active service in more than 100 countries.

Holden added that Jones will be only the fourth CEO at the company in its history 

“Jord’s story spans five decades and it’s a great example of an Australian-headquartered company delivering technology-driven solutions on a global scale,” said Jones.

“The industry is constantly changing and adapting. Jord has a nimble and innovative approach that has huge potential for continued growth.”

Among upcoming projects, Jord is preparing to break ground on a NovaCell plant at Tritton copper mine in central NSW, which will demonstrate a mineral processing solution with high efficiency, and which received a $5.68 million grant from the NSW Government Critical Minerals and High-Tech Metals Activation Fund – Stream 2.
