Jonathan Long, Friedheim's NEW Technical sales manager - Converting Division


The Carton and Corrugated industry in the UK has seen some leaps and bounds lately, with orders coming in on a nearly monthly basis for our Duran folder gluing machines. Friedheim International has taken note and has expanded its Converting Division with the arrival of Jonathan Long our new Technical Sales Manager – Converting Solutions. 


Mark Bristow, Managing director says, “Jonathan has over 20 years of experience in the Converting industry working throughout the industry in both service and supplier capacities.  He’s worked with manufacturers throughout the world and has garnered an impressive reputation. He is friendly, approachable, skilled, and above all has a technical knowledge that will allow him to understand our customers’ exacting needs regardless the size of the operation.


With the growth of sales for Duran and Kama in recent months, it was obvious that the demand for our range of Converting equipment was on the rise, so we started looking for an individual to match the quality manufacturers we represent” 


In the past Jonathan has worked in both a technical and a sales capacity, servicing the Converting industry as well as a number of other industries. His experience and success has been achieved by offering high value technical sales solutions to these companies, in environments which are both extremely challenging and demanding.


Jonathan says, “I am very excited to join such a reputable and well established company such as Friedheim International. Our product range of machinery and ancillary equipment is highly comprehensive, thus putting us in a very strong position to be able to offer solutions to companies from small to medium enterprises and multi-nationals alike. Combined with the backing of our excellent sales, service and spare parts organisation, will help tremendously to cement and develop partnerships with both our existing and future potential customers”
