Former Victor Manufacturing sales director Andrew Gibson has now joined Unitech Group in a dual business development manager role for both Stellex Manufacturing and Corsair Engineering.
Gibson’s new role will see him targeting distributors, specifiers and national accounts to gain greater specification and sales for the innovative offerings of the two companies; Stellex primarily for its abilities on the bespoke countering front and Corsair with its bespoke ventilation offering as well as unique fabrication products.
He will also be involved in new product development projects currently underway at both companies.
Given his experience and standing in the industry, many manufacturers were keen to talk to Gibson following the news of his surprise departure from Victor.
Having considered several offers and following a series of meetings both off- and on-site at Stellex and Corsair, he accepted the offer to act as business development manager.
The boards of both companies stated they are pleased to have secured Gibson’s services given the intense competition for his services from other strong drivers in the industry.
Tony Chamberlain, MD of Stellex, commented: “I have known Andrew for many years and have always admired him and his achievements. It is exciting to be able to work with him to promote Stellex to a broader audience.”
Arun Sahajpal, MD of Corsair, added: “Andrew has been a key presence in our industry for many many years and it is a credit to Stellex, Corsair and the Unitech Group that we have been able to attract somebody of his calibre to our operation. We can’t wait to get started!’
Gibson himself said: “Stellex Manufacturing and Corsair Engineering are both well established companies in the industry with a reputation for quality and service. This is an exciting opportunity and one which I am very much looking forward to.
“Both companies have many excellent products and a reputation for providing an exceptional service to distributors and their customers.
“Having spent some time with Tony and Arun, their passion for the products they make is clear to see. Their plans for the future include several diverse and innovative ideas which I look forward to being involved in.”
