Colmec appoints Finnish sales manager
Swedish tyre distributor and retreader the Colmec Group now operates in Poland, Denmark, Iceland, Norway and Finland, where it established a new service and sales organisation in May 2013. The company reports it has now taken the next step towards building up a full sales and service organisation there by appointing a sales manager for the Finnish operation.
Markku Asikainen is the new sales manager for Colmec Oy. The company says Asikainen has extensive tyre business experience and previously worked as a regional sales manager in Finland. “Markuu’s good knowledge of the market and tyre business will be a valuable addition, and together with country manager Sami Ojamo, for achieving long term relationships with both customers and partners in Finland,” said Colmec owner Peter Eckerström.
