SANY strengthen sales team in Scotland
Eric Reid joins as regional sales manager for north of Scotland, including Highlands and Islands
SANY Scotland, the direct sales and support route for SANY excavators in Scotland, are taking steps to provide greater coverage for customers across the country by recruiting a number of new regional sales managers, the first addition to the team being Eric Reid, who joined the business on 18 November.
With many years of experience in the construction equipment sector, Mr Reid (pictured) brings a wealth of knowledge and contacts from the north-east of Scotland. In his new role, he will be responsible for all sales enquiries across the north of Scotland, including the Highlands and Islands.
‘Since launching our direct sales route earlier this year, we have seen a huge increase in demand for the SANY range of excavators,’ commented Lyle Sibbald, general manager of SANY Scotland.
‘Unlike other manufacturers, we are not suffering from long lead times and have ample machines in stock. In order to make the most of this opportunity, we are investing in more people to provide excellent coverage across the market.
‘Eric is a great addition to the team and will provide customers in the north of the country with higher levels of support.’
In June this year, SANY opened their first premises in the UK. Located in Coatbridge, just off the A8, the building acts as the head office for SANY UK & Ireland, as well as the depot for SANY Scotland.
Over the coming weeks, the company will be adding more sales, service, and support members to the team as operations ramp up in 2022.
