THE COMPANY - Field Sales Manager – Industrial Automotive / Distributors / Aftermarket

Established over 50 years with 500 staff and £65m turnover, my client is a multinational manufacturer of automotive and industrial equipment, including welding equipment but also battery chargers and car body repair. They were bought out 20 years ago, and under their new ownership have been the most innovative, fastest growing manufacturer in their market in Europe. Growth has come from superb new product development and manufacturing efficiency. They already supplied the UK market but this full UK subsidiary has consistently achieved 25%- 30% growth year after year and is on target to do this again in 2017. They have a good sized field sales team across 3 divisions which is growing.
