DARLINGTON, UNITED KINGDOM — Vortex Valves Europe announced on March 14 that it has appointed Jonathan Kerr, of JK Process Equipment, as its new technical sales representative for the Southern U.K.
Kerr has over 15 years experience in the dry bulk solids handling market previously working with Braby Storage Silos, Guttridge Conveyors and Cuccolini Vibratory Screens.
“Jonathan brings a vast range of dry material handling experience to the Vortex team,” said Travis Young, Vortex’s vice-president of Global Business Development. “His past work in silo design, pneumatic transport and conveying will be of great benefit to our Southern client base.” JK Process Equipment will develop and increase Vortex’s customer base in the Midlands and Southern UK while focusing on customer satisfaction and application specific product selection.
