Jungheinrich UK Ltd has announced the appointment of Jonathan Morris to the position of Sales Director – Corporate Accounts.
Jonathan has extensive experience of the materials handling and logistics industry and has held senior national and international sales roles with a number of key suppliers to the sector.
"I am relishing the challenge of developing Jungheinrich’s dominant market position as one of the UK’s leading suppliers of forklift trucks and other materials handling solutions," said Jonathan.
He added: "In many cases what differentiates one forklift supplier from another is the added value benefits that the company can bring to its client’s business and I am delighted to be working for a company that is capable of not only supplying a full line-up of products – from counterbalance and warehouse machines to full intralogistics solutions – but, importantly, has the infrastructure in place to be able to guarantee the highest levels of service."
Hans-Herbert Schultz, managing director of Jungheinrich UK Ltd, commented: "We are very happy to be able to welcome Jonathan into this extremely important role within our organization. It is pleasing to appoint someone of Jonathan’s calibre."
Married with three children, Jonathan has an MBA and lists rugby among his many interests.
Unlike the majority of materials handing equipment suppliers who sell and service their products through dealers, Jungheinrich has always sold and serviced its products directly.
Today, in Europe alone, Jungheinrich has over 600 sales consultants as well as more than 3,000 mobile service engineers.
