UK company Andover Trailers has appointed Clive Jones to a new role as Head of Trailer Sales, responsible for the company’s range of heavy plant trailers and specialist trailers manufactured in Hampshire.
Jones takes on the position following the retirement of Sales Director Ivan Collins, one of the original founders of the company in 1985.
Managing Director Tim Wright commented, “Clive has spent over a decade with Andover and his knowledge of the heavy haulage trailer market is second-to-none. He’s ideally suited to taking on this strategic role within the business.”
Jones will be based at the company’s head office and production site in Andover, but will spend significant time visiting customers across the UK and Ireland developing new contacts for the company. He is also tasked with promoting the fast increasing market for Goldhofer products in this area.
Collins, who lives in Andover, is now looking forward to enjoying his retirement with his wife, three daughters and six grandchildren after spending 52 years representing Andover in the UK trailer-building scene.
“I would never have imagined when I started at Taskers [of Andover, ed.] as a boy that I would have finished where I have. The support of my colleagues, customers and friends along the way has been fantastic.”
