The Dun-Bri Group has announced a key strengthening in its management team through the appointment of Andrew Strath as Managing Director. This appointment allows Dun-Bri to further align the Group and gain a stronger focus on its ambitious expansion programme.
Andrew, who first came to the Dun-Bri Group in 1996 has held numerous senior roles in management, his last position being Sales Director, before being appointed by the board.
Michael Roberts, who started the company in 1989, and went on to firmly establish the group as the UK’s leading distributor of commercial vehicle lighting and auto-electrical products, will take up the role as Chairman of the group.
In a recent interview about the continued expansion into different regions of the UK, Andrew said; "Strengthening our management team is an important step in accelerating Dun-Bri’s journey to become Europe’s largest commercial vehicle after-market product distributor.
We will achieve this through the launch of further subsidiary businesses and continued investment and development in our staff and facilities nationally and internationally."
The company recently launched the new subsidiary divisions ‘Dun-Bri Engineering’, a wiring harness manufacturer and ‘Dun-Bri Fit’, a nationwide auto-electrical fitting and installation service and plans to open a new branch office and warehouse of Dun-Bri Group later this year in Yorkshire.
Plans for expansion and product development for 2014 will be announced later this year.
