After more than 20 years with Pyroban, Rob Vesty, Sales Manager for the UK and Ireland, will shortly be retiring from the company.

Rob has been an integral part of the Pyroban team and is well known throughout the materials handling industry across the UK and Ireland. Rob’s passion for the industry as a whole has been clear to see by all who have worked with him and we (the Pyroban team) thank him for all of his hard work and dedication over the years. He will retire from the role at Christmas 2020.

“For the last 20 years I’ve worked with so many great people and made some brilliant friendships both at Pyroban, and with my contacts at the OEMs, dealers and end users,” says Rob. “I really love this industry and have enjoyed visiting all sorts of different customer sites whether it’s a sweet factory, whisky distillery or high security MoD facility. It’s been a fascinating journey working for a wonderful company that has a simple goal of helping to protect people’s lives. I’m certainly going to miss it.”

In anticipation of Rob’s absence, his duties have been fully handed over to a new team. If you have dealt with Rob in the past, you can expect to hear from a new Sales Manager shortly (if you haven’t already). During this unusual time where COVID-19 and Lockdown are affecting supply chains, our team is still here and ready to answer any questions.  Please read our latest update here.
