Tristone Flowtech

Tristone Flowtech is a market leader in fluid transfer technology; an expert in designing, engineering and manufacturing flow technology systems for Engine and Battery Cooling, Air Charge and Air Intake. The brand is known for supplying all major car manufacturers and offering innovative solutions in the most sustainable way.

It is the company’s vision to set the bar of quality and sustainability within the industry, believing that their process of inventing, producing and optimising is ever-evolving. Their adaptive approach requires collaborative working and a deep understanding of their customers’ needs. As a result, it has been our mission to help them find the best pioneers, leaders and forward-thinkers to help them achieve these goals.

Over the years, we have worked in partnership with Richard Dawson, the Senior Vice President of Engineering and their HR department to source and retain the right talent in order to drive the business forward. Challenges come thick and fast in the tech and engineering industries. Therefore fast-acting, reactive people with the passion to invent is paramount to survival and success.

We were asked to identify and recruit a Senior Executive who could develop a start-up operation located in a remote facility based in Detroit. Working closely with the Tristone Flowtech team at every stage; not only to come up with the ultimate shortlist, but to present a credible case to influence the right executive to accept an opportunity with zero footprint in a remote region.

Discreet research led mapping, identification and approach search assignment culminating in the presentation of a qualified shortlist of motivated, capable and interested talented executives. Working collaboratively and consultatively has helped us create the right recruitment strategy at the highest executive level. In such sensitive environments, we knew we had to provide a dedicated account manager to ensure that communication was always seamless

“This has been an outstanding piece of work. As expected, we’ve never had a bad hire with Quantum. Tristone has a long relationship with Quantum which is testimony to the many successful recruitment assignments that have been completed during this time. Quantum is not only seen as a Search and Selection company but more as a partner supporting our international growth. In building this partnership, Quantum have taken the time to understand our business environment, company culture and the strategy that we are following in terms of market penetration, technology and globalisation. This means that we are rarely confronted with a potential candidate that would not “fit” into the Quantum community and enables us to focus more on the candidates experience, skills, motivation and aspirations.” – Richard Dawson, Senior Vice President of Engineering

A fantastic Senior Engineering Manager was hired within the agreed timescale and four years on, that candidate has been promoted to Managing Director for the company’s North American engineering facility.
