Abrasive consumables supplier Abracs has announced the appointment of Martin Brennan to the position of business development and key accounts manager in the Irish region. He will be responsible for growing Abracs’ share of the Irish market, spearheading a new drive to raise awareness of the 25-year-old company’s product portfolio and unrivalled customer service record.
Abracs, headquartered in Yorkshire, supplies abrasives and accessories to wholesale distribution channels throughout the world. A proactive approach to developing products for many different industries and markets, combined with a commitment to market leading distributor support services, a next day delivery service enabled by its huge UK stock holding, and a loyal customer base are key elements that have consistently helped to drive the company’s growth.
Mr Brennan has a wealth of experience in the Irish abrasives market having previously worked for some of the top manufacturers and distributors, including Marcrist, Saint-Gobain and most recently Tyrolit. His appointment signals the start of a significant investment programme in the Irish market to propel Abracs to become the supplier of choice for abrasive consumables and associated products in the region.
Abracs managing director Robert Jeffery said: “This is a key appointment for us, as Martin is a well-known industry figure with long-established relationships and a reputation to match. We are delighted that he has signed up to join the Abracs team and look forward to supporting his activities to generate increased awareness about our fantastic range of products and services for merchants and other distributors.”
Commenting on his new appointment, Martin Brennan said: “In over 25 years working in this sector, I have rarely come across a team with such vision and commitment for transforming the way we do business. Their approach is a breath of fresh air and I very much look forward to contributing to their continued success and growth, particularly in the Irish region.”
