New Strautmann product manager and sales specialist joins Opico

Opico has appointed James Swan in a new position as Strautmann product manager and sales specialist.

Mr Swan will support the opico Sales team and dealers across the UK, further reinforcing the level of expertise and technical knowledge on the Strautmann range of machinery, including trailed and self-propelled vertical auger diet feeders, forage wagons, and rear discharge muck spreaders.

On his appointment James said, ‘This is an exciting move for me.
