Bob Williams moves on

Filed under: Latest News — EHN Team @ 2:48 pm

After 37 years in and around the hire sector, Bob Williams, UK & Eire Sales Manager at Altrad Belle, has left the company. Today, June 30th 2020, is his final day in the post.

Starting his career at Chesterfield-based Errut Products in July 1984, where he sold the company’s surface preparation and compaction equipment, Bob enjoyed a good early grounding in the hire business – perhaps even more so, given that Ray Caulfield (Trime) was his MD for many years.

His time at Errut Products saw Bob representing the company across the Middle & Far East, before he took on the role of UK National Sales Manager. People of a certain vintage might also recall Errut Products’ concreting & compaction training courses at its Chesterfield headquarters, although rumours suggest that the legendary Chesterfield nightlife had much to do with their popularity. Bob readily testifies to this, since he ran the majority of courses!
Errut Products was acquired by Belle Engineering in 1990, which led to Bob becoming the group’s UK & Eire Sales Manager. Holding this position throughout, his responsibilities increased following Belle’s acquisition by the Altrad Group in 2009.

Bob’s enduring enthusiasm for exploring new sales channels has long been complemented by Altrad Belle’s R&D capabilities. Many major hirers, and the wider hire industry have seen numerous products that Bob and his sales team have successfully launched and promoted.

Always a staunch supporter of all aspects of the hire industry, Bob has been at the forefront of his group’s involvement at every hire industry and customer exhibition, as well as being instrumental with the group’s support of the industry’s representative body, the HAE.

With semi-retirement now on the horizon, it looks like the nation’s rainbow trout should be getting worried as more fly fishing is definitely on the agenda. Bob also plans to spend quality time with his family and friends, however.

Speaking of his momentous decision, Bob said: “After 37 years, I am extremely grateful for all parts of my journey in a what is a tremendous industry; but I feel that the greatest gift that I have been given is to work for a company and in an industry that has provided me with so much enjoyment and so many great memories.”

A prominent and popular figure in the hire industry, Bob has always been a friend to the magazine – and to the Executive Hire Show, in particular. After nearly four decades of service, some well-earned downtime is most certainly due. In the meantime, our very best wishes are with him in all his future endeavours.
