Following on from the company’s reorganisation earlier this year, customer-facing technical expertise has been bolstered with the appointment of Chris Gordon and Angela Hatfield as key account managers, covering the whole of the UK, and Paula Rose as area sales manager, following 10 years at Cromwell.
The business has also boosted its PPE, site service and business development divisions, both regionally and nationally. Dharmesh Devabhai joins as PPE specialist, bringing with him a wealth of experience in keeping people safe in the workplace.
Amber Bloore has joined as site service co-ordinator, with the remit of supporting vending contracts and additional services across the country. Additional site service co-ordinators are also currently being recruited. Gary Quinney has also joined the business as senior technical support – bids and tenders.
Finally, Sian Fletcher has also joined the Birmingham-based subsidiary as finance manager, a position that was previously based in Germany, as part of Hoffmann Group’s continued commitment to the UK market.
Investment has also been made across other areas of the company including increasing the size of its vehicle fleet and switching to hybrid vehicles
The new appointments come as part of Hoffmann Group UK’s business reorganisation, which was implemented earlier this year to provide its growing customer base with a more bespoke, effective service through bolstering the number of experts available to advise and consult with clients.
Hoffmann Group UK also has major expansion plans in place for 2021. Specifically, there are plans in place to increase headcount further to support the launch of Connected Manufacturing, a smart software solution for an efficient manufacturing organisation. Looking further ahead, the company has plans in place to double in size by 2023.
Tim Paddison, managing director at Hoffmann Group UK, commented: “Our first year of operating in the UK has been, considering how challenging the past few months have been for the industry, an extremely successful one.
“We have grown rapidly, and even implemented a complete reorganisation of how we operate in order to provide a better service for our customers during these unprecedented times. As a result of this, we are now in a fantastic place to push on and support manufacturers through whatever challenges the coming months may bring.
