Making use of its own state-of-the-art laboratories in Germany, the RAVENOL range of products are among the most advanced in the world and have been impressively demonstrated for many years in the top levels of international motorsport.


Although our current UK focus is on the Automotive sector, our extensive product portfolio also covers the Marine, Motorcycle, Commercial Vehicle and Industrial Markets.

The foundations are firmly in place and the scope for rapid expansion is there.

The overall responsibility of the role of the Technical Sales Executive / Business Development Manager is to generate business and increase sales by building partnerships, whilst increasing our brand profile in the UK. You will be responsible for defining and implementing a coherent business development strategy and be able to embrace our company culture, processes and procedures whilst looking towards future substantial growth within the business. You will ensure our reputation is maintained for high quality design, products, customer service and attention to detail in a friendly, efficient manner.
