Rope and Sling Specialists (RSS) has named Sean Maslen as regional sales manager for southwest UK.

Maslen will be responsible for promoting RSS’ range of equipment and services in the region. According to RSS, he has nearly 30 years of experience in the below-the-hook marketplace, having worked for some of the industry's largest companies.

Across the UK, RSS currently has offices in Heathrow, London; Aylesford, Kent; Rotherham, Yorkshire; Warrington, Cheshire; Grangemouth, Scotland; and Bridgend, Wales and has plans to open a seventh depot in the near future.

Steve Hutin, managing director at RSS, has previously been vocal about the company’s plans to expand its coverage in the UK to 10 sites; the southwest region is among a number of areas of primary interest, said RSS.
