Jed Soar has joined Maxam Tire International as applications and field service engineer. His appointment at Maxam follows that of Mark Turner, who from the start of June has held the position of senior product marketing manager – agricultural tyres.
Sailun Tyres (Europe) has appointed Janis Amolins as its business development manager for East Europe. Amolins will be responsible for the sales and development of the Sailun Jinyu Group’s portfolio of four brands for Europe: Sailun, Jinyu, Black Lion and Rovelo. He joins the Sailun team with immediate effect.
Sailun states that it has boosted sales growth and market share “in many European countries” since the introduction of its new car and truck tyre distribution strategy in 2011. The cornerstones of this strategy, which the manufacturer describes as “relatively simple” with “several key interlocking components”, including the full range of Sailun car, truck and bus, summer, winter, and all-season tyres will be demonstrated on the Sailun stand at Reifen 2016: Hall 7, stand 7D20.
