Jungheinrich UK Ltd has appointed Gary Bartram to the Very Narrow Aisle (VNA) team within its systems & projects division. Gary has taken up the position of VNA sales manager.
Steve Richmond, director of Jungheinrich UK Ltd’s systems & projects division, commented: “We are experiencing growing demand for our VNA storage solutions and Gary’s appointment not only reflects our determination to meet customer needs but also demonstrates Jungheinrich’s ongoing commitment to the development of talented people within the materials handling industry.
“As products, systems and processes become increasingly complex, it is more important than ever that we have the right people with the right range of competencies in place if we are to continue to meet the expectations of our clients and we believe Gary has the right skill set to ensure that we achieve this.”
Jungheinrich’s VNA range includes order picking trucks and Kombi trucks that can be equipped with RFID technology that enables them to be automatically guided to the right location in the right aisle at all times. Tests have shown that this feature can boost productivity within a warehouse by some 25 per cent.
