Thorite appoints new National Contracts Manager

Friday 14th December 2012

The UK's biggest pneumatic products and process systems distributor, Thorite, has appointed Gary Vann (46) as its National Contracts Manager. This appointment represents a major Thorite investment in Gary's personal business skills development, supported by the company’s commitment to the aims of the Investors in People scheme, reflecting the importance of this key sales role.

Following an intensive 3 week training programme, which provides both hands-on and theoretical experience in each of Thorite's business departments, augmented by regular on-going sales skills training, Gary will be responsible for developing and expanding Thorite’s innovative "20:20 Vision Total Air Management Programme".

This provides real financial benefits to industrial air users by reducing purchasing costs through single-source supply and stock buy-back, with additional inventory savings from advanced stock management. A further key aspect of "20:20 Vision Total Air Management Programme" which Gary will be promoting is improved production line efficiency: Thorite's own engineers conduct production line surveys aimed at achieving reduced downtime and maintenance.

The resulting efficiency improvements provide increased productivity and reliability, with lower carbon emissions, whilst ensuring compliance with all current legislation. Users can also enjoy typical reductions in electricity consumption of 30%, through leak reduction, pressure control and the utilisation of the latest energy-efficient compressor plant & equipment.

Gary joins Thorite after previous experience with Beko Technologies and 8 years spent with AE Industrial. Married with two children, he lives in Welton, near Hull in East Yorkshire and is a keen musician who enjoys playing drums in a local rock band.
