Tsubaki, has expanded its sales force in the UK with the appointment of two new area sales managers. Richard Shand and Billy Dawson will be responsible for developing Tsubaki’s relationships with established customers and distributors in their area, as well as nurturing new business.
Richard Shand, area sales manager for the South, joins Tsubaki from a leading bearings company and says his knowledge of both the food processing and aggregate handling sectors will be of immediate benefit:
“I understand how important it is to end-users that the components specified in their equipment are fit for purpose. Whether the application demands corrosion resistance, food-safe lubrication solutions or the robustness to withstand heavy shock loads, Tsubaki’s comprehensive range of engineered solutions has an answer. I look forward to working closely with both the OEM and MRO markets to ensure that end-users are benefitting from the performance improvements we can deliver.”
Billy Dawson, area sales manager for the Midlands, brings with him expert knowledge of lubrication solutions for industrial plant and machinery as well as a strong background in both engineering and business:
“Tsubaki’s history of innovation and engineering excellence has positioned it as a market leader for industrial drive and conveyor chain. The Lambda lube free chain series and Neptune anti-corrosion chain series are both examples of engineered solutions that improve the overall environmental and economical efficiency of industrial applications.”
Greg Sharp, Tsubaki’s country manager for the UK, adds, “Richard and Billy are joining the company at an exciting time. They both have a great deal of technical knowledge, plus breadth and depth of experience and a desire to always do their best.
