Hi Saleem,
I suggest, you should capture the following details and present it to the management and then collectively find a solution:
No of applications received
No of candidates you have spoken to or approached for the position.
No of candidates who are not interested(if possible find out the reason for the same)
No of candidates who did not clear the interviews
No of candidates who were offered but rejected the offer( if the find out the reason why did rejected the offer,it would help your case)
Recruitment medias used(eg: jobsites, newspaper etc...)
I think if you put numbers in place, it will help the management uderstand the difficulty faced in hiring.
Meanwhile, you can also cross train existing employees in to sales.

At this point of time,
1. I think hiring consultant will be fine. just talk to your seniors.
2. Also if there are any particular training centre from where you have mechanical students.
3. Try taking references from the candidate who have declined or not ready to come for the interview. You can also implement referral bonus for the outsiders also.
4.Internal Employee referrals can be implemented.
5. Use varous networking sites ad try to get hold of candidates.
Please do let us know what approach you used and the results.
All the best

I am pretty you must have not left any stone unturned for finding suitable candidate. There are many methods of recruitment as posting in some social websites, job portals as naukri.com, walk ins, media, head hunt etc. What i feel the reason for you not getting appropriate candidate is that as mentioned by your company is new and that too a P.E.B. industry which is for sure must be a jargon to most of the candidate you have approached. My suggestion is to try to make them understand first what kind of indusrty you are in and preset yourself as a brand or a leader in new kind of industry.You may use some local and national newspaper n magazines to make your industry known to people, it will take few weeks to make your industry sound familiar as well as reliable in marktet and then start hunting again. I am sure then you wont be disheartened.
Happy hunting:-)
