We are pleased to announce that as of June 3rd 2019, Mirko Alighieri has joined our leather blade producing group; adding further sales and market development skills to our growing team.
Mirko has nearly 30 years of experience working in the leather industry, having grown up in Italy’s leather producing hub, Santa Croce sull’Arno in Tuscany. For the last 20 years, Mirko has worked as a chemist in technical sales specialising in leather finishing products, working not only as a technician, but also in an international sales capacity. His main focus has been the global leather market, working in India, China, Bangladesh, Pakistan, Thailand and Turkey amongst other areas. He has particularly enjoyed being able to use his creativity in order to help realise to perfection his clients’ designs.
Since buying Hardy in 2015, and with the acquisition of Zanogen in April 2018, the group has had great success with its growth strategy. So, when an opportunity to add another experienced talent to the team came along, the management team reacted quickly; proving again that our unwavering commitment to be the number one shaving and fleshing blade producer supplying the global leather industry.
Peter Oxspring, Managing Director of Hardy UK Ltd. adds, “We are very pleased to have Mirko as a valued member of the Hardy UK team. His business ethic and customer centric focus are very much in line with the Hardy philosophy of bringing value, performance and service to every customer. We look forward to Mirko building on the strong results already established in our growing markets across Europe, Africa and Asia”.
Mirko is looking forward to combining his own and Hardy’s experience within the leather business thus providing a complete professional service for our clients.
