Sally Sillis is Schaeffler Industrial Services & MRO Manager

Schaeffler is appointing Sally Sillis as Industrial Services & MRO Manager at Schaeffler (UK) Limited. In this newly created role, Sally is responsible for all industrial services and MRO (Maintenance Repair and Operations) in the UK and Ireland.

Supported by the Schaeffler Technology Centre (STC) and the regional sales engineers, Sally is responsible for the sustained growth of industrial services provided to plant operators (MRO) and plant manufacturers (OEM). These services include bearing failure analysis, online and offline condition monitoring, bearing mounting/dismounting, bearing reconditioning, customer training and consultancy. Expected growth will also come from increased sales of hardware, including condition monitoring systems, bearing fitting and maintenance tools, and lubrication equipment.

Based at Schaeffler UK in Sutton Coldfield, Sally will coordinate between the STC and the UK sales team, reporting to Leigh Hopkins, Industrial Sales Director at Schaeffler (UK) Limited.

As Sally comments: "I'm excited to be taking on this newly created role. With its unique combination of expertise in bearing failure analysis, vibration monitoring, fitting and maintenance of bearings, as well as its own portfolio of condition monitoring equipment, Schaeffler UK is uniquely positioned to offer service solutions to more customers in the UK and Ireland across a wide range of industry sectors such as power generation, mining and quarrying, rail, wind energy, paper, steel, food and pharmaceuticals. I'm particularly excited about the recently introduced FAG SmartQB, a unique, easy-to-install solution for the monitoring of electric motors, pumps and fans. When changes occur in the behaviour of the equipment, a simple text message is displayed on the touch panel screen to explain the potential cause of the defect. It's a user-friendly but extremely powerful monitoring solution."

Sally joined Schaeffler UK in 2005 as Product Support Engineer, where she was responsible for technical support for MRO and OEM customers in the rail industry. In August 2011, Sally was appointed Industrial Manager at Schaeffler South Africa Pty. Based in Johannesburg, Sally was responsible for all direct sales to customers in the region, gaining invaluable experience and expertise in the mining and quarrying, energy, steel processing and power generation sectors. In October 2016, Sally moved back to the UK where she worked in a technical role in the Schaeffler Technology Centre (STC) in Sutton Coldfield, until her appointment as Industrial Services & MRO Manager in January 2017.
