Kyal Machine Tools Ltd has appointed Kevin Jones as its new UK sales manager.
He joined the Market Harborough-based company last month and immediately visited the EMO
show in Hanover to investigate the new innovations from principal suppliers WFL Technologies, Weiler, Hembrug and Willemin Macodel.
Mr Jones has over 35 years of industry experience. He started his career as a shopfloor apprentice and progressed through several ‘prestigious machine shops’ before becoming an applications engineer with a well-known machine tool builder.
His next move was to machine tool sales, where he has spent over 25 years working with several leading machine tool builders.
Kyal Machine Tools’ managing director, Simon Pollard (www.kyalmachinetools.co.uk
), said: “I worked closely with Kevin many years ago, and his attention to detail, relentless work ethic and expertise in all facets of machine tools and the manufacturing industry made this appointment an obvious choice.
“He has joined the company to underpin our already impressive sales growth in recent years. He has years of experience in dealing with the bespoke demands of the aerospace, motor-sport, medical, automotive, defence and oil and gas industries, which are all key markets for our high-end brands."
