The growing popularity of the Schunk range of toolholding, workholding and automation solutions on the Emerald Isle has now noted the Milton Keynes company adding to its sales team with the appointment of Barry O’Connor

Based near Dublin, the appointment of Mr O’Connor will be a statement of intent from Schunk, as it dedicates an engineer to Ireland to increase the company’s market reach whilst enhancing the service and supply chain for existing customers.  

In previous posts, Mr O’Connor has worked as a toolmaker and maintenance fitter prior to turning his expertise to machine tool sales and power tool sales. The ambitious Mr O’Connor has completed two bachelor degrees in electronic engineering and information technology, which subsequently led to a change of career direction as an electronic technician. With a well rounded career, Mr O’Connor has a diverse skill set that perfectly fits the extensive range of Schunk products for automation and machine tool applications.

The new addition to the Schunk team will bolster the company’s outstanding reputation for delivering product and application innovation for the manufacturing industry. If you are an existing Schunk customer, or if you are a manufacturing business in Ireland that has a workholding or automation requirement, please contact Mr O’Connor for further details.
