posted by -
ABAX is looking to increase its workforce in Peterborough by around 30 people in September 2017.

This will support the success of ABAX’s existing telematics product line up and new product introductions set for release this autumn.

ABAX has operated in the UK since 2011 and currently employs 50 people at the Allia Business Centre, ABAX Stadium, London Road, Peterborough. This is where the roles will be based.

Recruitment days will be held in the forthcoming weeks for the positions of In-House Sales Executives, Partnership Managers, Field Sales Managers and Customer Account Managers.

Candidates can request more information from ABAX UK Office Manager Janice Meakin by emailing jme@abax.co.uk

The recruitment follows today’s (June 6 2017) announcement that Investcorp, a leading provider and manager of alternative investment products, has completed the transaction of ABAX for 1.8 billion NOK (approx. £165m).

Investcorp plans to support ABAX’s international growth both organically and by add-on acquisitions, further expanding its customer base into new geographies as telematics solutions become increasingly relevant in the automotive industry.
