Matthew makes it the third generation to join Thorite

Wednesday 19th November 2014

With the appointment of Matthew Vaughan (23) to the position of Internal Sales Administrator at Thorite's Huddersfield Sales and Service Centre he becomes the third generation of his family to work for the UK's biggest independent distributor of pneumatic products and process systems.

Richard Vaughan, Matthew's father, is the current Thorite Marketing Manager. He joined the company in 1988, co-incidentally at the Huddersfield Centre, in the same role as Matthew, but is now based at the Bradford head office. Matthew's grandmother, Brenda, was employed by Thorite from 1956 to 1981, latterly as secretary to then Managing Director Teddy Wright, great grandson of the company's founder.

Matthew already has extensive customer service experience, having worked for various companies since leaving University including emergency customer support for Kone Lifts and customer service and sales at PC World. His new responsibilities will involve providing pneumatics solutions for Thorite's existing customers and building relationships with new clients in the Huddersfield area.

Matthew is single and lives in Wilsden near Bradford. His main leisure interest centres on motorsport, both as a competitor, sharing drives in his father's very successful Thorite-sponsored hillclimb car, and reporting. He is the official correspondent /photographer covering all rounds of the MSA British Sprint Championship and his reports have been printed in the leading Motorsport News magazine. Writing, playing and listening to music runs his passion for high speed activities a close second.
