Tong welcomes new Sales Manager to drive growth

Tong Engineering is pleased to announce the appointment of David Wilson as the newest addition to its dynamic sales team. With a proven track record of sales leadership and a wealth of experience in the agricultural and vegetable handling industry, our new Sales Manager is poised to help drive Tong sales throughout the UK and overseas.

David joins Tong with over 33 years of industry experience, which originally started at G&J Peck Ltd in Ely, initially in parts, then as Area Sales Representative selling agricultural equipment to the local farming community. In 1999, David joined Standen Engineering Ltd as UK Sales Manager, where he progressed to Sales Director. Laterly, David worked at Cheffins Auctioneers, in the root crop side of the business, as an Associate and regular Auctioneer.

Commenting on the appointment, Simon Lee, Sales Director at Tong Engineering, expressed enthusiasm about the new addition to the team. “David brings a wealth of expertise and a fresh perspective to our sales department, and we are thrilled to have him on board.” Similarly, Charlie Rich, Sales Director at Tong Engineering added “We have known David for many years, and his deep understanding of the ongoing needs of the vegetable handling industry makes him the perfect addition to our team.”

David joins Tong Engineering at a crucial juncture as the company embarks on a progressive path of growth, with the recent acquisition of Terry Johnson Ltd, manufacturer of the Swift Lift range of conveyors and elevators.

“I am delighted to be joining the Tong family,” says David. “The company is known for its commitment to excellence and innovation and the new manufacturing facility in Spilsby is world-class. I have enjoyed a close association with the company during my time in the agricultural industry and it is a privilege to now be given this opportunity to provide expert advice to new and existing Tong customers whilst being part of the company’s exciting vision for growth.”
