HENLEY-IN-ARDEN, England--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Bal Seal Engineering, Inc. has announced the opening of its new sales office in Henley-in-Arden, England. Located just south of Birmingham in the heart of England, the office opened its doors in October 2014 with the purpose of providing local support to the region.
“The region is a strong economic driver in Europe and a very important market for Bal Seal Engineering,” says Wayne Young, the company’s sales director for Europe, adding that medical, defense, and energy are among the key market segments for Bal Seal in the UK and Ireland. “Opening a Bal Seal office in this region is part of our expansion strategy. It supports our continued growth and confirms our commitment to this market and these customers,” says Young.
Mark Billing, Bal Seal’s new territory sales manager for the UK and Ireland, will be based in the Henley-in-Arden office. “Billing brings a wealth of experience in sales and marketing to the position as well as a strong technical background in products aimed at the power generation and oil and gas markets,” says Young. “His previous experience in applications for machined components and assemblies required understanding the language of engineering, which is a perfect match with the Bal Seal sales model.”
Young notes that Bal Seal has already achieved significant sales growth in Europe, and that the opening of this office supports the company’s growing customer base. Earlier this year, the company opened a sales office in France, which followed the opening of sales offices in Germany in 2013 and in the Czech Republic in 2012. Each of these offices will work closely with Bal Seal’s European headquarters, which is located in Amsterdam, The Netherlands.
