Joanne Zalesinski, 600 UK Educational Sales Representative with Harrison Alpha CNC lathe

Joanne Zalesinski has become 600 UK’s primary Educational Sales Representative.  The education sector has traditionally been a strong area for Colchester and Harrison and Joanne comes on board to consolidate and further expand 600 UK’s significant presence in this key sector, supporting the future of British engineering.    

Joanne’s background was initially at Pratt Burnerd International, where she started working ten years ago in 2004. Initially Joanne was involved in production planning and manufacturing support roles, but more recently has been working in customer service roles for workholding, lathes and lathe spares.  

Her new role is to promote Colchester and Harrison training lathes plus other products and services required, including full Workshop Re-fits, to the education sector and to be the main point of contact with training facilities, schools, further education colleges and universities.   

Joanne commented “It’s a real pleasure to be taking on this role to boost 600UK’s educational profile even further.  I am looking forward to helping our customers improve and update their existing educational workshop capabilities in particular, through the supply of Colchester and Harrison lathes, which are recognised as being the benchmark educational lathes in the market today which we fully support from our Heckmondwike manufacturing base.”

Howard Bamforth, 600 UK Sales Director said “It is great to see that we have an outstanding candidate who has progressed in our UK manufacturing facility in Heckmondwike, West Yorkshire to make an immediate impact on our selling operation.  Joanne has a wealth of experience with Colchester, Harrison and Pratt Burnerd products and is ideally suited to help our customers with their future purchasing decisions.”   

“We see the Education sector as both an important sales opportunity for 600UK but also a way to help with the Engineers of the future. We have a unique capability to help training establishments, not only through our quality machines but with the extensive product support and back up we can offer, which include tours of our manufacturing facility in West Yorkshire.”
