Darlac, the cutting tools experts, are delighted to announce the arrival of two more agents to cover the South West and also Wales and the border counties.
Peter Balacki covers the South West region for Darlac. He has 20 years industry experience, 15 years of which were as a buyer and then management of Backdown Garden Centre. More recently he has been a sales agent representing Briers and Doff.
In his spare time Peter likes watching sports, used to play football but now is content with gym visits. He also claims to study “a bit about physics and space”.
Chris Gage is the Darlac agent for Wales and the border counties – an area which has never previously had on-the-ground representation from the company. He has over 20 years of sales roles in the industry including spells at Woodlodge and La Hacienda. Chris is a rugby man in his spare time with 29 years playing experience at Ross on Wye RFC but is now retired from playing but very good in the clubhouse!
Commenting on the appointments, Darlac MD Tim Jeffries, said: “This continues a process aiming to give Darlac national sales coverage and follows the appointment of the Denholm Agencies last year to cover Scotland, Ireland and the north of England and more recently Richard Bedingfield in Central England. Peter and Chris bring fantastic experience to the company having been in the horticultural trade for 20 years. Our sales network continues to expand at a real pace and these appointments will help us ensure that we give the best possible service to our stockists.”
