Manchester-based equipment distributor UK Equipment Direct has outlined plans to expand its sales team as it looks to grow the business.

Azhar Siddique, managing director of UK Equipment Direct, said: “At the moment we employ 14 people and we are looking to grow that. We have currently got advertisements out for project managers and also business development managers, which are mainly inbound.

UK Equipment Direct manufactures and supplies a range of catering equipment and refrigeration solutions across multiple trading industries. It is also involved in export sales.

In a tweet earlier today, the company said interested parties could get more details on the sales vacancies by emailing
