UK-based OEM, Transdek, has named Neil Marsden as Sales Director following growth and demand for double deck lift and loading bay equipment.
This appointment follows a busy year for Transdek as it continues to expand its client portfolio, which now includes John Lewis & Partners, DFS and AF Blakemore.
Transdek manufactures double deck lifts and modular loading bay equipment as well as double deck trailers. Earlier this year, department store franchise, Boyes, specified a fixed double deck trailer with 1,830mm-high roll cages for urban deliveries.
Marsden brings with him a wealth of experience within the industry having spent six years working as Sales Director within the loading bay sector, and an additional sixteen years in sales and operations roles for Kone Elevators, Schindler Lifts and Hydratec Lift Services. Marsden, according to Transdek, has an unrivalled insight of customer requirements and pressures, from new build to retrofit projects and the growing need for efficiency savings.
Primarily responsible for Transdek’s lift and loading bay products, Marsden will help drive new sales, develop customer relations and ultimately, strengthen the company’s customer base. He joins a recently restructured senior management team, in which Sales Director, Leon Butler was promoted to the new position of MD of Modular Loading Solutions.
“I’m delighted to be joining the Transdek team as Sales Director,” said Marsden. “Working in the industry for many years, I’ve always admired Transdek. They have an excellent reputation within the industry and always pave the way for new concepts and innovative products.
“It’s an exciting time to be joining the business. The market for fixed double decking has been steadily growing so it’s great to have an unrivalled range of double deck trailers and lifts to offer to existing and new customers,” he said.
Leon Butler, Managing Director of Modular Loading Solutions, said the Sales Director position is vital for the business as it enters an exciting period of growth.
“[The position] requires someone that can sell technical products and solutions to all levels of the customer base from CEO down,” said Butler. “Neil brings 25-plus years of experience within our industry which gives him an all-important appreciation of the growing pressures within our sector. This insight, combined with his commercial and business acumen, make him the ideal candidate for this pivotal position.”
