Here at Weldfast, it’s not all about the products we sell, it’s about the people too! In this series of blogs we are going to introduce you to our team. Our second blog is dedicated to Mark Taylor – Area Manager / Translas Product Manager.

What is your full name?
Mark Taylor

What is your job title?
Area Manager/Translas Product Manager

How long have you worked at Weldfast?
Since January 2021.

From arrival in the morning to when you leave in the evening, what does your typical working day look like?
Visiting Distributors within my region, taking phone calls/placing orders/supporting Translas with demonstrations, product support, and quotations, looking after all pricing structures for Translas, and product support for Area Managers and internal sales staff.

What do you enjoy most about working at Weldfast?
Being trusted to do my journey planning and management of my area and freedom to promote the Translas product. It’s refreshing to be part of a family run, no nonsense company and speak to the owners openly.

Demonstrating, taking orders and looking after my distributors.

If you could swap job roles with anyone at Weldfast for a month, who would it be and why?
Member of the Warehouse team, as that is the role when I started in the industry.
(A month may be too long though 😉)

What do you enjoy doing outside of work?
As a keen motorcyclist, I enjoy being out riding my bike and watching bike racing. I also like to get away with my partner to different places in the UK in my touring caravan.

Tell us something we don’t know about you.
I have just completed my 41st year in the welding distributor industry.
