Andy is a valued team member, offering excellent support to key customers and colleagues
"I have worked in sales and manufacturing for twenty five years and joined The West Group fifteen years ago.
Being at the company for a number of years now, I have developed my knowledge of the fluid control industry. I have built some strong relationships with both customers and colleagues alike. During this time, I've seen the company evolve and grow its reputation as one that customers can trust.
I have progressed within the business and now work as an Account Manager within the CSD department. Every day is generally different at the company which means my role is varied and interesting. I discuss complex and detailed applications with key customers but also help mentor members of the CSD team. This helps my colleagues gain the knowledge and experience they need to offer customers the very best experience"
