Darlac, the cutting tools experts, are delighted to announce the appointment of Damian McEvoy as Technical Lead to strengthen the firm’s in-house product development capability.
Damian has a long working relationship with Darlac, having worked the horticultural shows circuit selling direct to consumer since 2013 and as part of the retail sales team over the same period. With solid product range experience tucked under his belt, this move is a natural progression from sales to a technical role that will support Darlac’s continued growth and expansion plans.
Of his new role, Damian said: “I have always believed Darlac deserved to be recognised as one of the leading brands in the category, as our commitment to quality and tool integrity have always been a priority. As someone who uses the tools on a daily basis, I also speak from experience when recommending the right tool for the job!”
Chris Owen, General Manager for Darlac, said of the appointment: “This is a key engagement for Darlac. Damian brings a wealth of experience of the tool category, backed up by his decade-long professional gardening experience using Darlac tools. He really knows his stuff. We are committed to a process of continuous development of quality garden tools. Our national sales coverage has grown at a stunning rate over the last 12 months with some key distribution deals that have expanded our market share. Our customers have come to expect the very best from us, and with Damian in position we intend to continue to deliver on this.”
