Business Booming: Sovex Appoints National Service Manager

Prenton, United Kingdom, September 16, 2009 --( Rapidly expanding Sovex continues to dominate the UK conveyor market. Phil Roughley, an engineer with over twenty-five years experience in the parcel handling industry, joins the company as National Service Manager. Sovex not only manufactures conveying equipment, but also offers operational maintenance contracts tailored to suit specific customer needs. Phil is now responsible for growing this area of the business.

Conveyor systems range in size and complexity, from small businesses with just a few machines, to major parcel handling companies that use hundreds. Operational maintenance contracts from Sovex help manage these systems, and allow companies to concentrate on primary business activities. They include regular service visits from experienced engineers to keep conveyors functioning properly, and 24-hour callout support.

Initially trained as a mechanical engineer, Phil previously worked for a major logistics and international courier company. In his new role at Sovex, he will manage customer accounts, direct the company’s team of engineers, and develop contract solutions to suit a wide range of applications.

Phil is delighted to be at Sovex and anticipates the future; “I was attracted to Sovex because it is a vibrant, swiftly growing company that is taking the UK by storm. Service engineering is one of my strengths and I am looking forward to developing this side of the business. The aim for next year is to develop a proactive management style that enhances the level of customer support. This will attract potential clients!”

Sovex is enjoying unprecedented growth, having recently agreed an operational maintenance contract with DHL to service conveying equipment at approximately 130 UK based depots. A vigorous recruitment drive has seen the addition of Phil Roughley, Steve Nuttall, Ian Jarvis, and Steve Stanbridge – all highly experienced engineers. They will work alongside existing staff at Sovex to take the company forward in 2009.
