MelissagoodmanUK: Hampshire-based air conditioning distributor Hushon (UK) has increased its sales staff in a bid to expand its presence in the market.

The first appointment is Melissa Goodman (right) who joins the company from Daikin UK. Backed by 13 years of air conditioning sales experience, Melissa will look after sales in the central southern region.

“We feel that we have been underselling our products, in a very competitive market, over the past few years and we have now decided that the time is right to invest in consolidating and expanding our presence,” said Hushon’s Ben Johnstone.

“In order to achieve this we feel a greater field sales force is required and it is this that we are now addressing, initially with Melissa being the first appointment.”

Formed in 1987, Hushon(UK) sells its own line of packaged air conditioning equipment, currently mostly made for the company by Hitecsa in Spain. In addition Hushon offers its own-brand air handling units as well as being an official Toshiba air conditioning distributor.

“We pride ourselves on the quality of our pre- and post-sales and technical service,” said Ben Johnstone, “and we are sure that Melissa with further enhance this service to all the customers she has contact with.”
