Leading trailer component and running gear supplier, BPW, has appointed Richard Brodie as Sales Engineer for Scotland. On his appointment Richard said, “It’s exciting to be a part of the organisation, a leader within the transport industry, and I look forward to building on the existing strengths of the Company’s sales team.

Richard, who took up his position in June, has over 30 years experience working within the commercial vehicle transport industry. His appointment follows the retirement of Alan Guthrie who worked for BPW for 16 years.

Neill Groves, BPW’s UK Sales and Marketing Director said, “Alan joined us in 2001 covering Scotland and the North of England. In the late 1990s BPW had seen dramatic growth in its UK sales market. As our customers in Scotland had come to expect an excellent service, we needed a ‘locally based’ sales engineer who could provide additional customer support. Alan accepted the post and soon became the ‘BPW go-to man’, supporting our customers in the north of the UK”.

“Although Alan will be sorely missed, we are very excited at the appointment of Richard, and the depth of experience he brings to further develop BPW as a partner to the transport industry”, Neill further commented.

Richard Brodie said, “From the feedback I’m getting BPW’s success in Scotland is not only due to the quality of the product, but also from the all important ‘support’ received when required. My goal is to maintain and further improve the first class service BPW already offers its customers”.
