JOST UK has appointed Lee Wilson as Area Sales Manager for the Southern region, supporting vehicle owners, fleet operators and body-builders with a range of OE and aftermarket components for commercial vehicles. Lee’s appointment comes as JOST UK continues to increase its product catalogue and invest in UK manufacturing

Since leaving the Army in 1989, Lee has worked exclusively in the commercial motor trade: initially as a driver and later working in logistics and sales. His sales experience includes ten years working for a leading vehicle manufacturer, where he first came into contact with the JOST range.

Lee comments: “The JOST brand is well known throughout Europe for its fifth wheels and landing legs. With the other brands in the group, such as ROCKINGER and TRIDEC, there is a strong stable of components which can help improve performance, reliability and safety. Of course the Edbro brand is particularly strong in the UK, and the manufacturing capabilities in Bolton helps to ensure a high quality of service to customers.”

“I’m excited to join the UK team at a time when the whole company is extremely busy. The area I’m covering has a lot of strong relationships already, so I’ll be working hard to cement our existing partnerships while also reaching out to new businesses.”

Danny Broomfield, Sales Director for the UK and Ireland, adds: “Lee will be replacing a well-respected colleague who retired this summer. His experience in the industry as a driver, logistics manager and sales man will help to ensure that the transition into the role is smooth. Lee is already well respected by everyone who knows him and I have no doubt that he will be a valuable addition to the team.”
