Bisalloy Steels Armour business manager Justin Suwart today announced the appointment of Darren Walsh to the position of sales manager – armour protection, Bisalloy Steels.

Mr Walsh most recently held the position of Key Segment Manager of SSAB Australia – APAC, and his engagement further strengthens the experienced Bisalloy sales team.

"Darren brings with him over 30 years of steel industry experience with a proven track record in driving development of new customers and applications for quench and temper performance steels in Australia, NZ and, more recently, throughout Asia, and it is exciting to have him join Bisalloy Steels at a time when we’re actively pursuing growth across all these regions," Justin Suwart said.

Mr Walsh’s in-depth knowledge of quench and tempered steels across a diverse range of markets especially defence applications, and his proven sales management expertise, will make him a valuable addition to the Bisalloy team.

"Darren’s understanding of defence applications and associated markets means he is ideally credentialed for managing customer relationships and driving growth for our BISALLOY® Armour and Protection steel grades," Suwart said.

With Bisalloy Steels continuing with its growth strategy in Australia and internationally, Suwart feels they have acquired the right man at the right time.

"Darren’s expertise in identifying and developing new customers, markets and applications for performance steel will form a fundamental basis for delivering on our business strategy. His experience in leading and developing strong sales teams will also be vital in ensuring our customers will continue to receive a superior level of sales and service support," Suwart said.
