Jungheinrich UK Ltd has announced the appointment of Mike Young as its Systems & Projects Division’s new UK Business Development Manager.
Mike specialises in the design and implementation of fully- and semi-automated intralogistics systems and, over the course of a 20-year career, has held senior positions with a number of leading materials handling equipment suppliers.

The creative thinking of the equipment supplier can prove to be the key to an optimal warehouse process and I look forward to working with Jungheinrich’s many clients to help develop the optimum systems for their business."
Steve Richmond, director of Jungheinrich UK Ltd’s Systems & Projects Division, commented: "In the future the most successful companies in the materials handling industry will be those that can offer a total solutions capability to their customers, whether that be a manual, semi of fully automated system. The Systems & Projects operation is a key area for growth and development for Jungheinrich and Mike’s appointment further underpins our commitment and investment in this area of our business. Mike is a fantastic addition to our team and I know he will enjoy significant success with our organization".
