Truckman, the UK’s leading 4x4 accessory manufacturer and supplier, has strengthened its production and distribution capabilities with the appointment of a new Operations Manager.

Experienced manufacturing specialist, Bharat Patel joins the West Midlands-based company with three decades’ experience in industry, including a period in the automotive sector.

Bharat takes on the role after the position became available following the unexpected death of Operations Manager Carl Bowcock who sadly passed away earlier this year and is much missed by his colleagues at Truckman.

From its extensive facility in Dudley, Truckman designs and builds hardtops for pick-up trucks, which are OEM approved by the leading manufacturers, including Toyota, Ford, Volkswagen, Mitsubishi, Nissan and Isuzu.

As Operations Manager, Bharat will support the continued development of Truckman’s processes and procedures to enhance production efficiencies and levels of productivity. Bharat’s skills in budgeting will benefit cost efficiency at Truckman as he can provide processes to reduce expenditure where possible.

He began his career in Quality Assurance progressing through positions, covering a range of disciplines. He spent 12 years with Qi Van Systems where his roles included, operations, production design, sales, logistics, customer service, after-sales and procurement.

Bharat Patel said: “I am thrilled to have joined the team here at Truckman. With more than 30 years of experience in industry, I have gained expert skills in planning, design, operations and value added services, which I believe will drive performance output and increase efficiencies in operations.”

Mike Wheeler, Executive Chairman of Truckman, said: “As the demand for our hardtops increases, we are always looking for ways to meet the growing customer requirements by recruiting expert industry professionals. I am delighted to welcome Bharat to the team as I am confident he will bring an invaluable set of skills and experience to our already highly-talented team.”
