Meet The Harnessflex Distributor: Dunford & Pearson - UK

Meet Matt Lewis, Sales Director of Dunford & Pearson distribution - one of the longest serving members of our global distribution team. 


Starting with Dunford & Pearson nearly 25 years ago, Matt spent 3 years working on within their manufacturing division. During this time, he built specialist wiring looms using the Harnessflex product range, which Dunford & Pearson pioneered in the UK at the time as a cable protection solution for the heavy automotive and specialist vehicle sector.

Matt can recall how Harnessflex as a brand and company always found a way to “solve a technical application” whilst providing wiring looms, achieving the highest levels of cable and connector protection.  In the early days of Harnessflex, Matt also spent time with one of the brand's founding fathers Bob Rudd, an application engineer who managed a large portion of the early Harnessflex product development. Many happy hours were spent learning and laughing in equal measure. This practical experience and product knowledge has continued to evolve into the very highest level of technical product support, unrivalled in the industry and a value-add enjoyed today by all of Dunford & Pearson's Harnessflex customers. 

Since taking over the helm 20 years ago, Dunford & Pearson distribution business has continued to thrive under Matt's leadership. Growing the business tenfold and forging strong customer relationships, some of which have lasted the entire duration of his 20 year tenure, Matt has developed an increasingly loyal and ever-expanding customer base. This was made evident three years ago when Dunford & Pearson outgrew their previous facility, moving to a new custom built warehouse which today houses over 750 lines of stock.

In the last 20 years, Matt’s been witness to many industry changes including the growth of Harnessflex in the UK and globally. As brand awareness has grown over time, Harnessflex have continued to develop its presence in the heavy automotive and specialist vehicle sector at OEM level. This has coincided with the emergence of new technologies, including in recent years emission controls and electric vehicles, resulting in the development of specialised conduits and fittings. 

With a new year on the horizon, Matt is looking forward with Dunford & Pearson set to employ further sales resource and implement new strategies for the rest of 2020 and into 2021. These new initiatives will no doubt further strengthen Dunford & Pearson's position as a key technical distribution partner of Harnessflex in the UK. Matt, we salute you, and look forward to continuing the journey with you.
