BSS Industrial has strengthened the team behind its specialist brands through the appointment of four National Sales Managers; Nick Croft for Austin Stroud, Lee Bellamy for Pegler & Louden, Chris Gaunt for Manor Plastics and Paul Crowe for AMS Pumps.
Industrial brands have been developed to provide customers with a single source solution for specific technical product ranges including pumps, plastics, industrial valves, carbon steel and stainless steel. The team will be tasked with supporting the regional sales teams through their specialist product and technical knowledge. They will also be expected to market the BSS
Industrial brand whilst growing the product range and service offering.
All four appointments are backed by extensive industry experience. Lee Bellamy started his career with BSS
Industrial 20 years ago and now returns after holding the roles of Area Sales and Key Account Manager at Flowserve. Lee has extensive knowledge of process valve and actuation products and industrial markets. Chris Gaunt started his career in the stainless steel and high nickel alloys market, before moving into the plastics sector with Capper Plastics, followed by several management positions within the Wolseley Group. Nick Croft began his career with BSS
Industrial back in 1985, returning after spending eight years at a mechanical engineering contractor. Paul Crowe has also been with the leading distributor for a number of years, most recently as a Senior Area Technical Engineer concentrating on the end user and process markets.
Lee Tebbatt, Brand Sales Director, said: “Having a team of National Sales Managers with such in-depth product knowledge will be a huge boost for each of the brands. With over 50 years combined experience, we’re looking forward to some fresh input and strong direction for the brands as they continue to grow in terms of the products and expert service they offer.”
All four National Sales Managers will be based at the BSS
Industrial Distribution Centre in Bulwell, Nottingham.
