Equipment specialist, SAF-Holland Australia, has appointed a new Area Sales & Service Manager in New South Wales, effective this week.
Joey Coles has accepted the role and reports to SAF-Holland Australia Sales Director, Stephen Vranesic.
“I am excited to be joining a team passionate about the transport industry,” said Coles. “The team – led by Managing Director, Mario Colosimo, and Sales Director, Stephen Vranesic – understand the industry and what it takes to keep our customers on the road. Our global aim says it all ‘We will be the ultimate supplier of excellent components, systems and services which drive the success of our fleet customers in the global commercial vehicle industry.”
In his newly appointed capacity as Area Sales & Service Manager, Coles will actively service New South Wales customers, promote SAF-Holland products as well as build and maintain strong customer relationships.
“I have 15 years of experience around fifth wheel couplings and understand what our customers expect,” said Coles. “I have valuable relationships within the transport industry throughout New South Wales and service is one of my main priorities. Having these relationships will allow me to build on the SAF-Holland Group brands including Neway, V.Orlandi and York.”
As for geographical areas of focus, Covid-permitting, Coles aims to visit regional New South Wales in the coming months and check in with fleets and trailer builders operating in metropolitan Sydney.
“SAF-Holland’s ELI-te fifth wheel technology, and air release, for example, enhances driver coupling efficiency and safety – I will be encouraging its uptake among fleets throughout New South Wales,” said Coles.
“Other products in the SAF-Holland range, such as SAF INTRA and YORK axles and suspensions, Mark V landing legs, V.Orlandi couplings, Holland Kingpins and pintle hooks provide our customers with a one stop shop.
“I understand the cost and frustrations with having a vehicle off the road and aim to minimise this for all of my customers throughout New South Wales.
“I’m proud to be a part of a team that is passionate about the transport industry and understand what our customers require. I look forward to helping promote the SAF-Holland brand and working closely with our customers.”
