AMHSA appoints new secretary

The Automated Material Handling Systems Association (AMHSA) has appointed Dave Berridge as secretary to take over from Graham Watts.

Berridge has over 25 years’ experience in the material handling industry, including being a member of the AMHSA Council for the past three years and is chairman of MHE/14, one of British Standards Institution’s committees responsible for safety in handling and storage automation.

AMHSA president Peter Lerigo said: “We are delighted to welcome Dave to this new role and we have every confidence in his ability to conduct the affairs of the association efficiently and continue the good work of his predecessor, Graham Watts, in raising the profile of AMHSA.

Graham became secretary almost 20 years ago when AMHSA was in decline; with help from a series of presidents, he built the association’s membership up to about 50 companies and made it a very effective networking group. We’re very grateful to Graham for all his hard work over the years and we wish Dave every success as he steps into his shoes.”
