New Thorite Key Account Manager for North East

New Thorite Key Account Manager for North East

Wednesday 19th March 2014

Thorite, the UK's biggest independent distributor of pneumatic products and process systems, has appointed Ken Stuart (54) to the position of Key Account Manager for customers based in the North Yorkshire, Teesside and Durham areas.

Ken brings over 30 years of both pneumatics experience and local knowledge to his new position, having worked as Sales Engineer for the Linden Group for 12 years, supplying pneumatics, hydraulics and general engineering products throughout the North East. He was also General Manager for Whitfield & Partners for 18 years, covering three depots which supplied pneumatics to industry in the same region.

Speaking of his future role with Thorite Ken said: "There are huge opportunities working for the company which covers all aspects of the fluid power industry, from the basic compressor to complete industrial processing systems, enabling me to offer customers a complete pneumatics package. There are very few organisations which can offer this range and I'm looking forward to expanding our product range for existing customers and bringing the benefits of Thorite's in-depth expertise to many new ones."

Ken is a father of two and lives in Guisborough in North Yorkshire. Walking, live music and expanding his knowledge of foods from around the world comprise his chief leisure interests.
