RB: How did you get into the industry?
IG: I started working at Britcom as a storeman in January 2008 and moved over to sales six years ago. I enjoy meeting customers and developing relationships.

RB: What is the outlook for your sector of the market over the next 12 months?
IG: There will be a rise in demand for Euro-6 products as operators look to comply with the Ultra Low Emission Zone. The UK market is tough but if you have the right stock and supply it to a high standard, there will be opportunities.

RB: How is Britcom different from other companies?
IG: We offer a one-stop shop to the whole spectrum of the commercial vehicle industry. We not only sell vehicles, we can extend a tractor unit to a rigid, build a body and have it painted, all under one roof. Our Chassis Engineering Services division offers bodybuilding, wheelbase extensions and reductions, tractor to rigid and axle conversions, caravan trailers and transporters, and trailers.
