LKE Group has appointed Jon Wells to develop its Floor-to-Floor concept of one-touch material handling solutions.
The group is concentrating on the British and the Irish markets providing systems to minimise handling, reduce damage, increase productivity as well as optimising space utilisation and traffic flow.
Wells, who was previously the industrial manager for Hoppecke Batteries UK, will concentrate on the aviation, railway and road industry sector, using his experience as an aircraft engineer in the Royal Navy working on Sea Harrier squadrons.
The Floor-to-Floor (F2F) concept works on the principle that once a component is manufactured it is loaded into a trailer system designed specifically to suit the application and is not touched until it is used in the assembly of child parts or final assembly of the complete unit.
It is now established in the aviation industry and is under scrutiny in the automotive and technology sectors.
