Sales veteran joins UK-based vegetable handling equipment manufacturer
Tong Engineering, a United Kingdom-based vegetable handling equipment manufacturer, has added sales veteran David Wilson to its team.
Wilson has more than 33 years of experience in the agricultural and vegetable handling industry, according to a news release.
“I am delighted to be joining the Tong family,” Wilson said in the release. “The company is known for its commitment to excellence and innovation, and the new manufacturing facility in Spilsby is world-class. I have enjoyed a close association with the company during my time in the agricultural industry and it is a privilege to now be given this opportunity to provide expert advice to new and existing Tong customers whilst being part of the company’s exciting vision for growth.”
In 1999, Wilson joined Standen Engineering Ltd. as UK sales manager and progressed to sales director. Wilson later worked at Cheffins Auctioneers in the root crop side of the business.
“David brings a wealth of expertise and a fresh perspective to our sales department, and we are thrilled to have him on board,” Simon Lee, sales director at Tong Engineering, said in the release.
Tong Engineering recently acquired Terry Johnson Ltd., manufacturer of Swift Lift range conveyors and elevators.
“We have known David for many years, and his deep understanding of the ongoing needs of the vegetable handling industry makes him the perfect addition to our team,” Charlie Rich, Tong sales director, said.
