Ahead of the MACH exhibition RK International Machine Tools has made a key sales appointment with the announcement that machine tool industry specialist Sandy Berry is joining the Erith-based company as regional sales manager for the Midlands.
Starting his career in engineering as a toolmaker, he moved into the machine tool sector, initially as a service engineer, before embarking on his long career in sales, with the past ten years spent in the grinding sector selling a broad range of grinding technology. It is this experience that he brings to RK International Machine Tools.
“I have known RK International as a competitor for many years, so appreciate the strength of their product portfolio. Given the diversity of their grinding equipment, as well as metal cutting machines, this is a great opportunity for me to make use of the contacts and experience that I have accumulated over the years,” he says.
The MACH 2018 exhibition will be a fantastic opportunity to rekindle some of those contacts and embark on this new chapter for Sandy Berry. Based in Leicestershire, he will be responsible for sales across the Midlands and will also be supporting customers in the north of England.
“We are pleased to have gained Sandy as a colleague here at RK International Machine Tools. His specialist understanding of the grinding sector will mean that he can hit the ground running and maximise his extensive experience within that sector. Sandy will be on our stand at MACH 2018 and this will provide customers old and new to tap into his detailed knowledge,” says Simon Rood, director and general manager, RK International Machine Tools.
