Spur gears expert Chris Challis


R. A. Rodriguez is well known for supplying precision engineering components in the UK but for some brands its scope is greater. For bearings’ manufacturer Kaydon and gear manufacturer KHK, the company also exports to countries in wider Europe. This increased trade has prompted R. A. Rodriguez to appoint a new Export Sales Engineer who will support the Export Sales Manager, David Hey.

Taking on the position is Chris Challis, who has an excellent knowledge of gear sales from his previous role. Chris has a degree in Aerospace Technology and Management and has a demonstrated history of working in the engineering field throughout his career. This experience has provided Chris with strong administrative and customer service skills, which he will be able to utilise in his new role in Rodriguez’s growing Export Sales team.

“This role is a brilliant opportunity for me to build on my experience in gear sales, whilst broadening my knowledge of engineering components and export sales,” says Chris. “Every day is different. I get to assist customers from a variety of countries and work as part of a dynamic team.”
