Krone appoints new After Sales Manager for the UK and Ireland

Published: 26 October 2020 - Sarah Mead

With Krone trailer numbers in the UK and Ireland at record levels, German trailer manufacturer Krone has appointed a new After Sales Manager to oversee technical and customer support services for the UK and Ireland. 

Jonathon Bastow joins with a wealth of industry experience: after training as a student at the MAN dealer college in Bristol, he worked for many years as a technician with several leading transport businesses. 

Hill Hire trailer rental provided a grounding for his technical trailer skills, followed by a term as workshop supervisor for Ryder in west Yorkshire where he undertook various technical courses and qualified as a diagnostics expert. Later, he went on to become Head of Fleet Maintenance for a major waste operator with responsibility for multiple depots in the UK.

“I am delighted to be joining the Krone team,” says Jonathon. “With a network of 56 well established workshop and garage partners strategically located throughout the UK and Ireland, I am confident that every Krone trailer user will continue to receive the very best in technical support and customer service.” 

With an international manager’s CPC qualification, Jonathon has a close understanding of transport issues and many years’ experience in specifying trailer equipment, along with the maintenance and inspection programmes required to run a compliant and efficient vehicle fleet. Furthermore, his in-depth experience makes him aware of the challenges faced by transport and distribution companies across a wide range of industry sectors.
