To build on this new customer journey, an experienced and dedicated Sales Manager, Derek Dutson has joined the team to provide customers with technical support and knowledge as well as provide live demonstrations of tools as required.
HK Wentworth’s Managing Director Ron Jakeman commented, “This represents a great opportunity for us and we are delighted to share our status as sole distributors for the UK and Northern Irish market. We are pleased to be able to build on our existing relationship and to expand the Hakko brand presence and are very positive for the future.”
