Paul Berrow has become managing director of Translift, the company behind the Bendi forklift truck, as part of a management transition process following the acquisition of the business by a combination of existing management and a private equity investor.
At the time of the buyout, Neil Dickinson became managing director and a shareholder in the business, with Berrow as sales director. As a result of the latest changes, Dickinson has become executive director focusing specific projects and supporting continued execution of the strategy.
Rob Bull, currently financial controller, will be appointed as the finance director. Stephen Astbury will step up to the role of sales director.
The business has continued to work closely with Landoll, Translift’s partner during the past 15 months and worldwide producer of the Bendi. In a move designed to offer increased support to Translift and their European dealers, Landoll has established a European Hub based in the UK for trucks and parts.
