Transdek appoint chief for trailer business

Transdek has named Paul Avery managing director – trailers to drive growth in its e double deck trailer operations.

Avery joins Transdek from Montracon, the manufacturer of refrigerated, dry-freight and flat semi-trailers, where he was also managing director. Prior to this he worked from 1999 to 2015 at Schmitz Cargobull, the German trailer and truck bodies manufacturer, progressing from engineering manager to managing director.

Avery said: “I am very excited by the vision of Transdek founder Mark Adams, regarding changing the double deck and single deck markets offering a complete logistics solution. All of Transdek’s products deliver such a speedy return on investment for customers, through substantial operational cost savings. The company is an innovator, not a follower, and as an engineer this provides me with a very unique opportunity.”

Mark Adams becomes chief executive officer responsible for overall business strategy. Sales director Leon Butler has been promoted to the new position of managing director of Modular Loading Solutions.

Butler, who has been with Transdek for over 12-years and held a variety of roles in operations and engineering management, will focus on loading bay technologies and the double deck lifts business, which works seamlessly with the trailer operations to deliver an integrated logistics solution.
