Members of The Materials Handling Equipment Association (MHEA) which has supported the interests of UK and overseas companies supplying and using powder and bulk handling equipment for nearly 75 years have elected a new President.
Paul Bancroft Sales & Marketing Director of Continental Conveyor Products who was elected President at the Association's recent AGM takes over the role from Brian Mackenzie who served the MHEA in that capacity for two years.
A well known figure within the materials handling industry, Paul has worked with a number of corporations including the Harsco Corporation (USA), Rolls Royce Industrial Power Group (Mining), Redler Limited and Clyde Bergermann. In addition, his extensive sales and marketing expertise has been recognised by being awarded both Fellow status and Companion status by the Institute of Sales and Marketing Management.
Commenting on his new role, Paul who is also an attendee member of APGUS (All Parliamentary Group for Underground Space) said "The MHEA supports many industries within the UK and it is a great honour for me to take over the reigns from Brian. He will certainly be a hard act to follow. I now hope to push ahead in endeavouring to make sure that the MHEA has a greater depth of presence in the industrial markets our members serve. In addition, I will strive to ensure that the MHEA and our members are the first port of reference with appropriate recognition with in our country's various Trade & Industry Departments as our capabilities cover both Domestic and International market sectors."
