Introducing Chris Astley, Thorite’s New Capital Equipment Sales Engineer for the North West

Chris Astley has joined Thorite as a Capital Equipment Sales Engineer and is based at the Rochdale Sales & Service Centre, supporting customers in the North-West of England.

During any customer visit, a Capital Equipment Sales Engineer is likely to be discussing capital projects and systems with senior engineers and designers. Consequently, knowledge of the latest compressed air systems is vital, and Chris’ 30-year experience extends to the food, chemical and process industries.

On his appointment with Thorite Chris said: “It is great to be joining a company with such a strong, industry-wide reputation as Thorite. I am looking forward to building relationships with both existing and new customers and my new work colleagues.”

Chris lives in Heywood, Lancashire and spends his leisure time cycling, swimming, and walking along with regular cinema and theatre outings. More Information is available at, but please call 0800 0341 041 to obtain a hard copy brochure.
