Steering system specialist, Pailton Engineering has appointed Stephen Moore as its new business development manager. Moore brings with him over 20 years of experience in mechanical and design engineering roles and commercial positions. Merging an engineer’s mind with sales proficiency, Moore is set to nurture and expand Pailton Engineering’s customer portfolio.
By trade, Moore was a qualified mechanical and design engineer of tools, forgings and aerospace parts. In 2004, he transitioned into the commercial side of the aerospace sector but hasn’t ventured too far from his engineering roots.
His new role in the land vehicle sector will involve maintaining and developing Pailton Engineering’s key accounts, many of which include well known military vehicle original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and bus manufacturers.
Moore will also source new business opportunities for Pailton Engineering and is open to speaking to any chassis design engineers in need of bespoke steering parts. This will be of particular relevance to the electric vehicle sector, which is celebrating and contending with a lack of standardisation. For customers who cannot find standard parts that will fit their design, Moore will discuss options with them.
“I’m slowly but surely understanding Pailton Engineering’s customers,” explained Stephen Moore, business development manager at Pailton Engineering. “This is a unique client base. These customers aren’t just ordering from a catalogue, they are discussing the geometry, weight and material options for their specific vehicle requirements.
“While it feels like a lifetime ago, my design engineering experience will no doubt come in handy as I navigate existing customer accounts and reach out to new prospects. My medium-term goal is to build great relationships with our existing customers and turn that into profitable business for Pailton Engineering.”
Pailton Engineering designs and manufacturers bespoke steering system parts for military vehicles, buses and trucks. Any OEMs that require this level of design flexibility, whether that be a non-standard number of serrations on a steering shaft, or novel mechanical memory in a steering column, are welcome to reach out to Stephen Moore at email@example.com.
