After an excellent level of sales in the UK in 2014, the SCM Group is adding a further area sales manager, Lee Gibson, to its direct sales team due to an increasing level of enquiries and orders for its wide range of woodworking and panel processing machines.

Lee, 48, has a wide range of experience and is a time-served wood machinist and has worked in sales at two UK tooling suppliers followed by a period at a rival machinery supplier.

Residing in the Manchester area, Lee will cover the North west area including Merseyside, Greater Manchester, Cheshire, Lancashire, Cumbria, plus Scotland and parts of the North east.

Lee comments: “I am thrilled to have joined the UK’s leading supplier of machinery with the greatest range of woodworking and panel processing machines including CNC machining centres, beam saws, edgebanders, wide-belt sanders and planer/moulders in my portfolio.”
