New managing director for Linde Material Handling East

Published:  13 May, 2015

Linde Material Handling has appointed a new managing director to lead its UK East business.

Simon Manasseh joins Linde East with more than 30 years’ regional, national and international experience, aiming to further grow the company’s market position in the region.

Commenting on his new appointment, Mr Manasseh, said: “From the first impression of Linde East what we’ve got is really special as a business. There’s an experienced workforce of 150 people and the facilities are unique with our own customer demonstration area and training centre. Linde East has 100 field-based engineers who can order the parts they need to be delivered overnight meaning that they can respond efficiently to repairs the very next day.

“I was inspired to join Linde as it is the number one material handling brand in Europe and it is both inspiring and challenging to be part of a company with such a strong reputation and history. My aim at Linde East is to maintain our market-leading position in the region and to drive sales to achieve further growth while ensuring that we deliver excellence in customer service.”
