UFI Filters has appointed a seasoned industry professional, Ian Jackson, as UFI Aftermarket UK & Ireland Business Development Manager. Ian has over 20 years experience in the automotive sector, mainly in procurement and business management with motor factors, including over 10 years with Automotive Parts & Distribution in Swindon.
Welcoming him to the team, Karl Ridings, UFI’s Aftermarket UK & Ireland Sales Manager, said: “Ian’s experience and background is a perfect fit for us as we strengthen our position in this marketplace. His in depth knowledge of what motor factors really need is particularly important.”
Luca Betti, Director of the UFI Group Aftermarket Business Unit, said: “We are fully on track to win a 10% share of the UK Aftermarket, the ambitious target we set for ourselves last year in our three year growth strategy. The Redditch distribution center and our new sector-leading service quality standards have been well received. Now, increasing our presence on the ground, is a logical next step for us in the highly fragmented UK and Ireland aftermarkets.
