We welcome Steve Groocock to our new UK office
We are very happy to announce that we are expanding the Swedish OCS Overhead Conveyor System business to include the UK, where Steve Groocockis our new co-worker. He will be the Business Development Manager and responsible for the sales in the UK to all industries. We welcome Steve by learning a bit more about him and his plans for the UK market.
What is your background?
I’ve been in the automation industry for more than 15 years, so I would say I have an extensive experience of sales management. I know the industry well and I know about meeting specifications and exceeding expectations. My previous position was at the global company Bosch Rexroth where I worked as a sales manager.
What is your role at the UK office?
My main function is to market and establish OCS and the conveyor systems on the UK market. I do that by networking and integrating with the industry, which makes Leicester the perfect location. It’s situated within 30 miles from Birmingham where the main automotive industry is located in the UK. From here I can easily manage any exhibitions and other market activities – both local and nationwide.
What is your vision?
My vision is to have the OCS product established into the UK market so that OCS is one of the first choices for overhead conveyor systems. The goal is also to become a brand that is recognisable in the UK automotive OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) against our competitors, and to drive the brand into other well-established industries as a go-to product for new automation solutions. Alongside the expansion plans, I vision a small team of experienced personnel so that the UK can work as a standalone office and still utilize what the Swedish office has to offer, but with minimal reliance.
What are the key success factors for OCS in the UK?
The launch of the new webpage was a great milestone and has already led to a handful of inquiries. In each and every one of those inquires there is always at least one objective for either making the process leaner, the system more efficient and cleaner, or to conserve resources such as electricity for the process to be greener. With these unique selling points, OCS have some great opportunities of consuming market share. I feel very proud to be part of a company where those three parameters not only guide us co-workers, but actually set the guidelines for the entire company and how we do business.
