Rygor Appoints Dedicated Unimog Manager
The mighty Mercedes-Benz Unimog is in a league of its own, so it’s no surprise that when it comes to suppyling this prestigious vehicle, a dedicated expert is who you need.
Rygor Commercials is one of the select Mercedes-Benz Truck franchised dealerships in the UK to supply and maintain the Unimog and is delighted to welcome to its team, Matt Cleave, as its new Unimog Sales Manager. The company created this new role within the business to offer a value-added, expert service level for customers interested in the Unimog.
Matt started his career as a machinery engineer, working his way up through dealerships, with roles in service, parts and sales, giving him an expert, rounded view of the entire industry and proving that he truly knows commercial vehicles, inside and out.
“I grew up on a farm, so I was always aware of the Unimog from an agricultural perspective,” Matt said. “Throughout my career I have worked with a range of vehicles, but the Unimog, being such a specialist product, was something I always wanted to work with, which is why I was attracted to this role at Rygor.”
Matt is based out of Rygor’s Heathrow branch, but is committed to being out visiting customers and arranging Unimog demos to give customers a real-life experience of utilising this one-of-a-kind vehicle within their business.
“It is a fantastic product to be able to supply. Versatility is at the heart of the Unimog as it has a solution for an almost endless range of tasks, for a wide variety of sectors. One of the best parts of my job is getting out, learning about people’s businesses to understand what they need and how the Unimog can help them achieve this. Whether it’s agriculture, roads and highways, utilities, construction or many other industries, the Unimog is so capable, cost effective and adaptable,” Matt added.
John Keogh, Rygor Truck Dealer Principal, said: “We’re proud to be one of the select Dealers in the UK who has the expertise in-house to offer the Unimog. With so many options and attachment configurations available, the Unimog can be intricately individualised to specific business needs, so this single point of contact for our customers is essential for convenience and consistency. Customers who are looking for this unique type of vehicle need to know that the person looking after them, really knows their stuff and in Matt, they can feel sure of this.”
