Patol has extended its team of sales engineers for its range of fire safety equipment and systems with the appointment of Josh Risk.
29-year old Josh joins the Reading-based business as Export Sales Engineer and will be working on the full range offered by Patol, from its own-manufactured Firesense linear heat detection cable (LHDC) and Infrared (IR) conveyor heat sensors, through to the Securiton aspirating smoke detection (ASD) systems for which Patol is the distributor in the UK.
Josh has extensive experience in a customer-facing environment, having worked most recently for a major retailer of electronic products. Commenting on his appointment he said – “I am enjoying the training on the specifics of the Patol systems and look forward to taking this into the markets in which the company operates. It is clear that Patol has a global reputation for its knowledge and expertise in developing solutions for many different fire safety scenarios and I am relishing the challenges that my new position will bring.”
The recruitment of Josh follows the recent appointment of Jitendra Gupta to the Patol team in India. Jitendra joins Kannoth Mohanan and Saibal Sikder as a Technical Sales Consultant for the range of Patol products in what is a key market for the UK manufacturer. He comments – “I am delighted to be representing Patol in India. This is one of the most important export markets, highlighted by the fact that sales of the company’s LHDC and IR sensors have increased 10-fold in our growing power generation and industrial markets over the last decade.”
