Distag QCS are a rapidly expanding business in the industrial components sector. We distribute and manufacture engineering components for supply to Manufacturers and Distributors throughout the UK and Ireland.
The company’s products are structured in four closely related divisions:
Mechanical Power Transmission – Open Drives, including belts, chains, couplings, pulleys, bearings, etc.
Hydraulic Components – Hose, fittings, flexible and steel assemblies, valves, pumps, and cylinders.
Agricultural Trailer Parts and Accessories – axles, suspensions, braking systems, drawbar components.
Bespoke Products – offering design and production service from drawings or samples, complete outsourcing solutions.
An exciting opportunity has arisen for a hardworking, committed, and ambitious individual to join the fast-growing Business Development team at Distag QCS.
The successful candidate will support our existing customers and develop new business, working closely with the Internal Sales Team and our Product Line Managers to grow the business in your designated area. They will have sound sales experience, preferably within one of our four product sectors. The position might suit a candidate who has worked successfully in an office-based, or service focussed, sales position, and is looking to progress.
We have a reputation for excellent customer service, and the successful applicant will be comfortable working in a customer facing environment and have the necessary acumen and personality to build strong relationships with our customer base, both from the office and in the field. The ability to grow in a selling role, and the desire to grow in a dynamic sales environment, are also prerequisites. They will also need to have sound IT skills with the ability to use our CRM system effectively, be an excellent communicator, a strong team player, and able to use their initiative, working in a highly entrepreneurial environment.
While the last few years has taught us that a considerable amount of communication can be carried out remotely, via Teams, telephone and email, when needed, we still believe there is no substitute for meeting customers, particularly new prospects face to face. The chosen candidate must be prepared to travel, to visit customers when needed, and will need to stay over some nights when their schedule requires.
We are looking for a genuinely committed individual , who will relish the prospect of joining a dynamic, rapidly expanding business, with a unique offering in industrial distribution.
