We’ve recently expanded the EGO Power+ team in the UK with the addition of two members of staff to help continue to establish our position in the market.
Vincent Brauns joins us as product manager. Vincent has the specific task of developing new products to extend the EGO reach across Europe.
“I shall have an integral role in the new product development programme for both domestic and professional markets through our European and UK dealer channels. Enhancing the service elements of our products will provide an added bonus for our dealers,” said Vincent who joins EGO from Andreas Stihl.
“It is tremendously exciting to be in at the very start of our journey with EGO. Innovation runs right through every strand of our business and there is little doubt that cordless technology will become the leading power source in both the domestic and professional sectors in the near future.”
In the UK sales are handled exclusively by Henton & Chattell through its 150
0 strong dealer network. To support them, EGO has appointed product specialist Ian Boler. Ian’s role will focus on the dual areas of seeking new retail customers and also supporting existing stockists of the EGO range.
In the past he has undertaken similar work on behalf of Bosch professional power tools. His experience in the area of cordless lithium-ion technology will be of huge benefit. Ian is convinced that the environmental and efficiency values of the EGO brand will strike immediate chords.
“The more I use the products the stronger my conviction that EGO will become the major brand for cordless garden products in Britain. Consumers and trade customers are increasingly motivated by environmental claims for products and ours do genuinely tick all the boxes,” says Ian.
Steve Roskell, the UK and European marketing director for EGO, describes the two appointments as “significant additions in our thrust to become a major force in the sector for cordless garden products.”
