Ben Hayes appointed as area sales manager for Herrenknecht


Ben Hayes has started a new role as Herrenknecht area sales manager and head of sales for Asia Pacific. 

The company is known for manufacturing large-diameter tunnel boring machines (TBMs), but also focuses on smaller-diameter trenchless installations with its pipejacking and horizontal directional drilling equipment (HDD). 

Hayes, a degree qualified Civil Engineer who first joined the sales team in Thailand 13 years ago, will manage the sales team for the Asia Pacific area for its Business Unit Utility Tunnelling.

“The product lines I will be responsible for are small diameter TBMs, microtunnelling equipment, HDD equipment, shaft sinking equipment and some specialised pipeline installation products known as Direct Pipe and E-Power Pipe, as well as supporting all Herrenknecht group brands where I can,” Hayes said. 

While he will still be involved in his previous front line sales role, Hayes said he’s looking forward to steering the long-term strategy.
