Hylec appoints Chris Shore as South Western Area Sales Manager

Hylec-APL, the specialist supplier of electrical components and enclosures, has appointed Chris Shore as South Western Area Sales Manager from July 1, 2021.  Chris joins an expanding team at Hylec as the company reports robust sales across its entire product portfolio.

Shore is responsible for UK sales from Cornwall in the South-West across to Hampshire in the South, North and South Wales and up to Cheshire and the West Midlands.  He joins Ed Lightfoot, Northern Area Sales Manager and Jake Pitcher, Southern Area Sales Manager in the Hylec sales team headed by Sales Director Steve Robbins.

Shore comments: “I’m delighted to be joining Hylec at the beginning of this exciting period of growth. We are stocking high levels of product across our entire portfolio to assist customers during the present phase of high demand and to help offset production delays due to material shortages.  Across the next 12 – 18 months, we forecast strong sales as the industry emerges from the pandemic and I look forward to meeting with existing and new customers at contract manufacturers, OEMs, multi-nationals, lighting companies and designers.”

Shore joins following twenty years with a leading electronic components distributor, where his experience included worldwide purchasing and sales.

Outside of work, Shore, 42, enjoys football and coaches a youth team.
