Sheffield-based handling equipment specialist, Mechan, is strengthening the service it offers to new and existing customers with the appointment of a new sales person.
Richard Mangham joins Mechan’s sales team to extend its capacity and help accommodate increasing demand for the firm’s heavy lifting products in both the UK and overseas markets.
In his role at Mechan, Richard will be working alongside the existing sales team to promote the firm’s standard and bespoke cranes, as well as its extensive range of rail depot handling equipment.
Following a 20-year career in the manufacturing industry, Richard has a broad understanding of the production and installation process. He worked most recently as a technical sales engineer for Rotherham company, Carl Stahl Evita, where he was able to develop his skills and put his experience into practise, advising customers on solutions to their specific lifting requirements.
Richard Carr, Mechan’s managing director, said: “Having worked his way up through the manufacturing industry, Richard’s wealth of practical knowledge gives him a thorough understanding of our product range. No two Mechan projects are ever quite the same and I believe Richard’s expertise will further enhance the skills of our talented sales team, enabling him to provide new and existing clients around the world with exactly the right equipment for their very specific needs.”
