Growing sales and focus on customer support demands that our sales management be reinforced and centred in Rugby, England.

We are therefore delighted to announce that Steve Nixon is to become our International Sales Manager.

Based in Rugby, he will take full responsibility for all our Sales and Marketing activities worldwide, working alongside Stephen Bernhard, Peter Wood and Steve Wilson.

Steve is well acquainted with the US market having spent several years in Florida. He will work closely with Gary Ray and the US team, with Steve Wilson and the Pac. Asia team and with the existing team in the UK and Europe.

“We are a close-knit company and Steve has always been very highly thought of by the whole team. Everyone is very excited about this development and the impact that it will have on streamlining our business and opening up new channels”, said Stephen Bernhard.


We are also pleased to announce that Paul Wilcox has been appointed to the team in the new role of European Territory Manager.

Most recently, Paul has been focusing on Spain and southern Europe.

He now moves into a wider European role following Steve Nixon’s promotion to International Sales Manager.

With a background in greenkeeping, more than a decade developing customer relationships and an unparalleled depth of experience of the industry Paul has worked with Bernhard grinders across the globe, from the West coast of the USA, as product specialist in Australia to tours all over Asia and special projects in Japan.

Steve said, "Paul's experience is an asset to our customers and distribution partners, and I am delighted to announce this increase in support for our growing European market."
