SCHMITZ CARGOBULL APPOINTS NEW IRELAND SALES MANAGER

Schmitz Cargobull has appointed Paul Ó Ceallaigh as its new dedicated Sales Manager for Ireland, who brings nearly two decades of experience in the Irish transport industry to the business.

Ó Ceallaigh will provide a dedicated point of contact for operators in Ireland looking to expand or replace their trailer fleets.

He will also work on extending Schmitz Cargobull’s pan-European Service Partner network in Ireland, ensuring operators have easy access to repair and maintenance for their equipment by approved technicians.

Alan Hunt, Managing Director, Schmitz Cargobull UK and Ireland, says: “Paul brings deep understanding of the Irish market and his experience will benefit all of our existing customers, as well as new fleets.”

Ó Ceallaigh says: “Schmitz Cargobull offers state-of-the-art trailers, but the company is about so much more than that. The full service support on offer is unlike anything else in the industry, and genuinely helps cut lifetime running costs for operators.

“I’m keen to help grow our network in Ireland to make it even easier for fleets to make the most of our services and our smart trailers.”

Ó Ceallaigh previously worked for IVECO as its heavy truck sales specialist in Ireland and has had roles with Volvo Truck & Bus, Arrabawn Co-op and the Irish Government’s Department for Transport.
