Smith joins the team with a decade of experience in business development and technical product support in the electrical industry.

Commenting on the appointment, Spelsberg managing director Chris Lloyd, says: "We've appointed Chris to meet the growing needs of our customers in the South West. His technical knowledge will allow him to develop our existing partnerships with OEMs and installers, while his understanding of the wholesales and contractor market will help us to open new doors."

The appointment has been made as Spelsberg continues to grow its business in the UK. The firm provides support to OEM's, installers and designers with a range of standard solutions and a complete customisation and installation service.

As part of his role he offered expert product support to customers, helping to specify bespoke solutions for their applications.

"I believe that success in our industry is won through building partnerships with customers based on a simple philosophy of quality, flexibility and reliability,” Smith comments. “I want to offer a quality solution from a product range which offers the flexibility to ensure I have what the customer really needs; then I want to make sure I can reliably deliver the order on time and to specification,” he concludes.
