Deritend Industries has appointed Stuart Hutchinson as General Sales Manager for the Deritend/Deritend RMB and Deritend H&K business units, specialising in maintenance services, electromechanical repairs, asset management and engineering projects. Hutchinson joins Deritend from a global engineering and manufacturing group based in Scotland.
Group CEO Richard K Hale comments: "This is an important strategic role for the group, allowing us to develop a clear and dynamic structure for the sales force after recent acquisitions have added significant resources to the service portfolio."
Deritend and Deritend RMB Operations Director Alex Meiklejohn says: "Stuart brings with him a wealth of sales management experience with electromechanical engineering businesses operating on a global basis; we are looking forward to him playing a vital part in moving the business forward."
With its headquarters in Wolverhampton and serving customers throughout the UK and internationally, Deritend now has fourteen engineering service centres employing over 300 skilled personnel with sales of more than £30million pa.
Hutchinson comments: "I am pleased to be joining a company that is so obviously moving forward; the expertise on offer from the group in supplying both on- and an off-site mechanical and electrical engineering service is world-class, with a high focus on customer care. I hope to enable the Deritend Industries organisation to increase the level of services we supply to certain key customers in strategic market sectors as well as developing the huge potential in new business areas via our national sales team and cross-selling the group capabilities in our blue-chip national accounts and European network."
Following on from the acquisition of RMB Engineering in 2007 and M&E services contractor H&K in 2008, Deritend Industries is pursuing an ambitious acquisition programme designed to maintain its position as a leader in plant maintenance, repairs and facilities management to an ever-increasing customer base seeking increased efficiency and cost reduction, giving total asset management.
