Ian Drinkwater, Applelec managing director, said: 'With our field sales staff located around the country, Applelec will be focusing on one-to-one support for customers working with the SloanLED range. Applelec has been using SloanLED systems within the fabricated signage and lettering we manufacture for many years which means we have a solid understanding of the products and how to get the best from them.'
Applelec will be stocking all SloanLED products for signage which will be available in kit form, with modules available to purchase individually or by the carton, as well as within fabricated signage manufactured by Applelec. Applelec will be supplying the range with SloanLED's industry-leading warranties, which includes a five year warranty on most products.
Applelec is currently recruiting two new members of staff to support existing sales teams with the new distributorship, with dedicated staff set to work on SloanLED product sales. Applelec will shortly be offering training activities for customers looking to understand the SloanLED range.
