Swisslog (UK) Ltd is delighted to announce a further strengthening of their organisation with the appointment of Andrew Manship as Managing Director and Head of its Europe2 Region.
Andrew’s promotion has relocated him from Sydney, Australia to the UK, where his new position carries multiple responsibilities. In addition to his roles as Managing Director of UK and Ireland and Head of Swisslog’s Europe2 Region, Andrew will oversee the business units in Belgium, The Netherlands, Australia and New Zealand. He brings with him a wealth of experience, having previously held the positions of Managing Director for Swisslog Australia and New Zealand, Sales Director for Dematic in Northern Europe and Head of Operations for Siemens Electronics Assembly Systems.
Andrew replaces Pieter Feenstra, who has been promoted to lead Swisslog’s Healthcare division throughout Europe. This restructuring of experienced leaders demonstrates Swisslog’s drive to invest in its future and augment existing strengths to reinforce its market leading position.
On his appointment, Andrew said: "I’m very much looking forward to the opportunities of my new role. Swisslog has strengthened its core business well despite the wider economic downturn. It is now an exciting period where we look to capitalise on that strength as the first green shoots of recovery are beginning to show through in our focus industries."
