Getting to know Wesley

Wesley Thompson joined us in 2019 to head up the Horticulture division.  A highly driven and experienced Sales Engineer, Wesley previously worked in the industrial steam generation sector for ten years, looking after customers and building relationships with new clients.  Now a core member of the INDO commercial team, Wesley is responsible for developing horticulture sales and supporting controlled environment growers to ensure their particular crop requirements are met with INDO’s superior light technology and innovative systems.

What Wes likes about the lighting industry

From the off, working within horticulture lighting industry has been really exciting.  It is great to see the potential that INDO has within this sector, and even more so as the product range expands. The technology is fantastic and definitely strikes a chord with customers when they hear about it and then see the product quality for themselves.  I’m really excited to be involved in this side of the business and see it grow (excuse the pun!).

Things he’s pretty proud of…

  1. Starting within a new industry and increasing sales 60% across a 5-year period.
  2. Securing large projects with blue chip companies such as Rolls-Royce, JCB and Birdseye.
  3. Quickly becoming responsible for running a technical branch for one of the companies I had just started working for.
  4. Building long-lasting working relationships with many customers
