SunRace Sturmey-Archer has expanded its team further with the appointment of Patrick Kos as Sales Manager in Mijdrecht, where the European sales and distribution office is located, effective from 1 October.
Kos will mainly focus on the north and west of Europe. With this, SunRace is taking the next step towards increasing its market share in the European market. Kos has previously worked for YongLi, a Chinese manufacturer of conveyor belts, where he was also employed as Sales Manager.
This comes following the appointment of Ruud Bokhout as General Manager earlier this year.
After taking over from his predecessor Alan Clarke, Bokhout has focused on significantly increasing market share in Europe. In addition to investments in production capacity in Taiwan, investments are also being made in the European team.
SunRace is increasingly seen in the market as a high-quality alternative to the established brands in drivetrain components and is making considerable progress. Increasing interest is also noticeable in the gear hubs of Sturmey-Archer. With the current growth in the market, there are plenty of opportunities for the component supplier with headquarters in Taiwan.
