Trained to provide a Champion service

Friday 25th February 2011

Two of Thorite's Key Account Managers, Dave Beckett and Kevin Johns, have completed a period of intensive training to become Air Tool Champions, enabling them to advise customers on the correct air tool choice and best working practices.

The training was carried out at Thorite's head office, combining "hands on" experience with a wide range of related subjects including operational features, compressed air requirements, potential applications, relevant markets and industries, legislation and safety.

Dave, who is based at Thorite's Bolton Sales & Service Centre, is available to service customers in the Bradford, Huddersfield, Rochdale, Bolton & Blackburn areas.  Kevin works from the Leeds Centre and responds to enquiries from customers in Leeds, Sheffield and Doncaster, as well as the North East.

The training course was masterminded by Clive Halliday, Thorite's Process and Vacuum Manager, who said: "Dave and Kevin are now very much in demand to provide their wide ranging understanding of air tools to any customer who requires their specialist advice.  As the choice of air tool products grows the related legislation also increases, for example customers now have to consider the implications of dust inhalation from the use of the tools and whether to install centralised or de-centralised extraction systems.  Fortunately both our new Air Tool Champions are fully versed in this type of information and can ensure that customers not only select the most appropriate tools for their requirements, but also safeguard the health and safety of their operating staff."
