|A body for Cincinnati...|
He’s at it again. Not content with having taken up mountaineering without warning and devising the fried chicken lunchtime pressure switch sales system, David Almond, PVL’s Head of Sales and Marketing announced a couple of weeks ago that he was popping out for a curry. Three days later we got a text message from India saying that he had tied up a new UK and Ireland sole distributorship for the superb range of ATEX and flameproof switches manufactured by Orion in Pune. Our reply asking what had happened to the curry produced a predictable reply. “I ate it”.
The next message announced that he was on his way to the USA and had bought six new shirts with his company credit card. It seemed that he was on to yet another important distributorship and wanted to look his best without finding a laundry first. A lengthy phone call to Ohio the next morning established that David’s new friends were Transducers Direct, whose unique range of pressure transmitters can each be programmed at the point of sale to provide any of a spread of pressure ranges and input and output specifications. In about the time that it takes to munch a bagel, PVL had become the sole UK and Ireland distributor for Transducers Direct, and had arranged for PVL to have the full programming software to customise the range of transducers.
David permitted himself one his occasional awful plays on words. With memories of eating popcorn while watching ‘Working Girl’, he announced that he had ‘A head for business and the body for Cincinnati’. You have to know the film to get the joke, it seems.
David is back in the UK buying Kentucky Fried Chicken buckets for quick sales lunches, and his Mercedes once again smells like a takeaway. Steve Moorey, our Managing Director, suggested that David should get a diesel so that he could do a deal with KFC to buy in the used cooking oil to fuel the car. He remarked that it wouldn’t smell any different.
Jokes aside, the PVL web site team is hard at it putting the products of two new major distributorships on to www.pvl.co.uk, and the PVL engineering team (01892 664499) is up to speed with the programming of a whole range of transducers to meet customers’ next-day needs. Give them a call and tell them how being able to order transducers and transmitters to your precise specification for next day delivery will help you. And remember to get up to date with www.pvl.co.uk – it’s changing every day at the moment.
