MORPETH-based garage equipment supplier Gott Technical Services has expanded its regional sales team with the appointment of a new equipment and tooling advisor.
24-year-old James Pattinson, from Gosforth, has joined the family-run business as an personal sales advisor to independent garage owners based across the North East, Cumbria and Yorkshire.
Having previously worked as a salesman in his own family’s printing business, James brings a wealth of relevant skills and experience, but also shares Gott Technical Services’ understanding of a need for a personal service when selling any product.
Gott Technical Services equipment and tooling advisor James Pattinson said: “My new role at Gott Technical Services really appealed to me because of the attention to detail the company provides in caring for its customers’ needs.
“My job involves making personal visits to local garages, where I offer individual advice to each garage on what they require. This is different from some of our competitors who are often unable to provide a face-to-face point of contact.
“I’m really enjoying the variety of the role as I’m meeting garage businesses of different sizes across the North and advising on a wide product range that includes everything from individual spanners, to vehicle lifts.”
Gott Technical Services Director Ian Gott said: “There are many workshop and service managers who would like advice regarding the best solutions to aid their productivity and help them meet their health and safety obligations, so we want to be able to help them all as best we can.
“It’s quite normal in our industry for equipment providers to simply leave the client to choose a product from a catalogue or insist on purchasing online without any guidance, whereas we believe the personal approach is best.
“James is a specialist in garage products and he will meet clients and prospects personally to give advice on the best options available in the market place. This way we ensure we always provide the right product to the right person, no matter what size the business is.”
Gott supplies, services and maintains MoT and body shop equipment to the car service and vehicle repair industry and currently has more than 500 active clients whilst also operating as a consultancy in the public transport, haulage, local government and emergency service sectors.
