Exide Technologies (CMP Batteries) has made two new appointments to strengthen its service to customers. Richard Jones has been appointed as Senior Key Account Manager and Jon Wells takes up the role of Technical Projects Manager. Both will be based at Exide Technologies' traction battery manufacturing plant at Over Hulton, Bolton.
Richard Jones has many years' experience within Industrial Sales – having spent the last 16 years as a Key Account Manager for Henkel Loctite – working extensively with the MoD, the railway sector and nationalised industries – all sectors that will be relevant to Exide. Richard will be working on key accounts, particularly with OEMs.
Jon Wells has worked for one of Exide's customers for the last seven years – at Norco. His knowledge of the battery industry will be invaluable as he works in a management role helping major customers to develop large materials handling power projects – particularly battery changing systems as used in major warehouse operations for the likes of Tesco and Sainsburys.
