Polyco Healthline, the UK's market leader in designing, developing and supplying high-quality hand protection and disposable workwear is delighted to announce the appointment of Sarah Bridge as Commercial Director for Polyco Healthline’s Industrial unit.
Sarah brings with her decades of experience as a business leader with extensive expertise in the B2B sales environment.
Sarah first joined BM Polyco – one of the businesses which merged to form Polyco Healthline - in 2002 as the Professional Business Unit Director and in 2007 became the Deputy Manager Director. In 2015, she left to work for companies such as Supertouch, Granberg Group and Safety Technology.
Commenting on her recent appointment Sarah said: "I’m delighted to be part of the new Polyco Healthline and will be making every effort to meet our Industrial customers as often and as regularly as possible. The merger between Polyco and HPC Healthline and the birth of the new Polyco Healthline business has represented some change for our customers. I’m keen to receive feedback from all our distributor partners and end users to help us to tailor our Industrial business to best suit their needs for the future."
Leading on the industrial side of Polyco Healthline as Commercial Director, Sarah will be responsible for the growth and development of the company’s business in the supply of hand protection products to the Industrial marketplace through their network of distribution partners.
Using her market and commercial understanding of the business, Sarah hopes to accelerate growth for Polyco Healthline.
Neil Wilson, Managing Director said “We are delighted to have Sarah back in the fold. Her knowledge of our market and our products is second to none and we have already received positive feedback from customers and staff that she is back in our business.”
Sarah Bridge said: "Having spent nearly 30 years in the safety products industry I have a deep insight into the ever-changing requirements of the sector which is driven by the need to better protect those working in every part of the economy. Change can be driven by legislation, changing working practice and by the economic requirements of customers. My task is to ensure that we meet those challenges with our customers by providing solutions with our products, our technical help and support, our service and by knowledge sharing offered through the exciting new digital solutions available to us."
Replacing Steve Bussey, Sarah will be working with the existing industrial team establishing the sales strategy which builds on their new position as Polyco Healthline in the market.
Sarah added: "Our future development will be based firmly on Customer Focus and Innovation in product and services to make us the partner of choice whenever hand protection is required in the workplace and to continue to solve hand protection challenges wherever they may be."
