Christeyns has appointed Victor Kiely as a technical account manager to strengthen its Irish team, headed up by Jerry O’Brien, operations manager, Ireland. Kiely will be field based and will provide support across all of Ireland. He is currently undertaking a six week induction course at Christeyns head office in Bradford.
Christeyns has seen significant growth both in its UK and Irish businesses over the past three years, with turnover in Ireland up by 50%. The firm is also developing partnerships with a number of specialist distributors that serve the small laundry and dry cleaning market.
Dave Aveyard, operations director at Christeyns, said: "We want to build on our success in the commercial laundry business to date and leverage the significant number of opportunities we have in the pipeline arising from both technical advancements in equipment systems and innovative chemical developments.”
The Irish sales team will support Christeyns growth strategy as the firm looks to increase turnover and sales across all its business sectors in both the UK and Ireland.
