Hoist UK has announced the appointment of Colin Jones to their sales team as Technical Sales Engineer. Colin has been in the lifting industry for almost 25 years, having been previously employed by Chester Chain Co. where he started off on a temporary contract as a lifting equipment engineer, working his way through the ranks in various roles including site supervisor and works manager, until he became General Manager in 2013. He brings with him a wealth of knowledge and experience of standard & specialised lifting equipment, along with his formal LEEA (Lifting Equipment Engineers Association) qualifications.
“Having Colin join our team is a major asset for the company, as it is always difficult to employ a technical engineer with a proven track record in the industry” said Hoist UK Director Paul Jordan. “Colin has a vast knowledge of the lifting equipment sector, and he will be a real advantage to us as the company grows, especially assisting with specialist projects that we are working on.”
Jones said: “I have known Paul and the team for many years and I was happy to be given the opportunity to work for such a dynamic and growing company. Their technical approach to project based work and their depth of product knowledge that allows them to attract such high profile projects excites me. I am really looking forward to the fresh challenge, and particularly working on projects like ISO rated clean room systems, ATEX applications and to be working more within the entertainment industry.”
Louise Dickson, General Manager of Hoist UK added: “We are pleased to welcome Colin to the Hoist UK family; he has got a great personality and will be a real asset both on site advising clients and in the office mentoring some of our other staff that are new to the industry.”
