Gebhardt-ECS has appointed Stephen Baker, one of the UK’s most experienced specialists in the automated materials handling industry, as sales director.
The appointment follows the merger of Nottingham-based European Conveyor Systems with Gebhardt Fördertechnik, a leading German designer and manufacturer of intralogistics equipment and systems. A key responsibility for Mr Baker is the promotion of the full range of Gebhardt-ECS equipment, including shuttles, mini-loads, ASRS cranes and conveyors, in the UK and Irish Republic.
His 24 years’ experience includes implementation of many fully automated intra-logistics systems in the UK and overseas, while working for SSI Schaefer, Dematic and Siemens Logistics and Assembly Systems. Roles have spanned system planning and consulting, strategic solution and product development, and sales and sales management. He has a BSc Honours degree in mechanical engineering from Brunel University.
ECS represented Gebhardt in the UK and Ireland from 1992, and the two businesses built up a close relationship offering complementary equipment ranges. Gebhardt-ECS has retained the existing UK personnel in order to ensure experienced local project delivery and support for customers.
