Due to the ongoing development of its export markets, Balmoral Tanks has strengthened its international sales team with the appointment of Alexander Harvey into the role of regional sales director for the Far East & Australasia.
Alex comes to Balmoral with 10 years’ experience in bolted sectional tanks and has spent a significant amount of his career in that region as well as working throughout Europe, Africa and the Middle East. With a high level of technical knowledge in renewable energy and wastewater treatment, Mr Harvey also offers considerable experience in distribution chain establishment and management.
Company export sales director, Simon Scott, said: “We are confident that Alex will be a great asset to Balmoral’s international team and our global customers will undoubtedly benefit from his industry and market-specific knowledge. We look forward to fast-forwarding the growth curve with Alex on board.”
Mr Harvey said: “This was an opportunity that I couldn’t resist. Balmoral Tanks is recognised for the quality of its products and its innovative approach to the market.
“There is a fantastic team in place from design and engineering through to manufacturing, installation and technical services. With that kind of support it’s my ambition to take the company to new and exciting places in the very near future.”
This latest commitment complements the company’s construction of a 60,000sqft fusion bonded epoxy tank manufacturing facility in Thurnscoe, South Yorkshire. Due to open its doors in Q4 2017 the new plant will offer a state-of-the-art epoxy coating line, in-line shot blasting as well as the latest laser cutting and fabrication technologies.
