Andrew Thompson joined Lion Containers in March 2015 in a Senior Sales capacity. Andrew has worked in the optometry industry for 21 years, even running his own opticians for 13 years. This previous experience has provided Andrew with superb sales and business knowledge which is well applied to his role at Lion Containers. Andrew is based in the Lion Containers head office in Cannock.
Since working at Lion Containers, Andrew has made a real impact with his sales experience and managed a number of high profile and significant container jobs. Andrew was the project manager for Lion Containers' largest ever custom built container, a unit which was 10000mm long x 3300mm wide x 3300mm high and designed and tested to withstand 14T of weight. This was Andrew's favourite Lion moment to date, his only comment on this was “It was huge!”. Andrew's favourite container modification however was the football stadium bar designed and delivered by Lion Containers.
Outside of work, Andrew enjoys spending time on the golf course with his son and eating out with his family. His pet hates are bad manners and being late and if he was not a container expert, he would be travelling around the world supporting his son on the professional golf circuit.
