Waples takes over as BITA president

Tim Waples, CEO of Doosan Industrial Vehicles UK, has succeeded David Rowell as president of the British Industrial Truck Association.

Waples formally received the badge of office at BITA’s recent AGM.

Tim has previously acted as president of the association from 2010-2012, and has 30 years’ experience in the industry.

“It is a real honour to be asked to take up the post of President, especially for a second time,” said Waples. “I would like to pay tribute to my predecessor and all his hard work, and during my time in office I will look to build on this work particularly in the area of statistics, as BITA is the only official source of UK industrial trucks statistics.”

“I’ll also be looking to further develop the Oxford Economics Market report which I know so many members find invaluable to their planning and budgeting, as well as developing and strengthening our relationship with the FLTA.”
