Ring Carnation expands team with vehicle conversion specialist

Date: Wednesday 26 October 2022

Aftermarket technology specialist Ring Carnation has expanded its UK sales team with the appointment of David McKinless as specialist sales manager for vehicle conversion.

David’s role will be to provide sales support to existing customers, while also seeking out unexplored sales areas, and engaging with new customers.

David joins Ring Carnation from a Spanish vehicle conversion and manufacturing company where he oversaw a bus and coach sales operation.

“There’s a real dynamism at Ring, a general sense of optimism and positivity that emanates throughout the business, which also extends to our customers making the role extremely fulfilling,” David said.
“Vehicle conversion is an area I have always been involved with since finishing my apprenticeship in a conversion company, and my new role offers many synergies enabling me to use my vehicle conversion experience, but crucially without the negative effect the legacy of the Covid pandemic has inflicted on the bus and coach industry.”

With David’s appointment, Ring Carnation continues to address the challenge of the shortage of motor electricians in the aftermarket sector, by increasing its technical support offering, minimising installation time for customers.

Richard Morley, director at Ring Carnation, said:

“We’re delighted to welcome David to the Ring Carnation team. His knowledge of the vehicle conversion sector will be a real asset to the company and our customers.
“Ring Carnation is continually developing new products to serve the vehicle conversion sector and we recognise how important it is to liaise with our customers and provide technical insight in our role as trusted advisors.”

Ring Carnation manufactures robust and reliable electrical management solutions – proven in the toughest environments – for all types of specialised commercial vehicles.
