Bob Holt to spearhead Strongs sales operation

Published:  23 February, 2015

Following a period of expansion, Tamworth-based company Strongs Plastics Products has appointed Bob Holt as sales manager.

In this newly created position, Mr Holt will be responsible for developing all future sales of the company’s popular co-polymer products to customers in the UK and Europe, including vehicle bodies, battery boxes and packaging equipment, as well as bespoke plastic fabrications.

Having worked in the transport industry since leaving school, Mr Holt joins Strongs Plastic Products from major commercial vehicle manufacturer Isuzu Truck UK, where he held the position of fleet sales manager for the past four years. Prior to his spell at Isuzu Truck UK, he was employed by specialist vehicle manufacturer Terberg DTS (UK) as national accounts sales manager.

James Strong, director at Strongs Plastic Products, said: “As market leaders, Strongs has been the first to introduce new materials and techniques in the field of co-polymer vehicle bodies and this has been reflected in our considerable success in recent years. With the addition of Bob’s proven pedigree within the commercial vehicle and logistics/distribution sectors, we will now be able to push forward even further, as demand for our products continues to grow in the UK and overseas.”
