ELOKON Group has announced the appointment of Gavin Tull as the company's new Sales Manager, UK. He brings a deep knowledge of the deployment of safety and assistance systems within the materials handling sector, having worked for materials handling organisations in both the USA and the UK. Tull will continue to advance the international growth of ELOKON as a leading supplier of safety and assistance systems. He will also support the strategic development of the ELOKON group of companies by providing UK customer feedback to the ELOKON engineering team.
Gavin Tull was responsible for EMEA sales for eight years at Hyster-Yale Group, before moving to a role focused on the use of AI, intelligent sensors and machine learning, to help protect people working in close proximity to forklifts and mobile plant. "We are thrilled that Gavin Tull is joining ELOKON at this time. He brings with him a significant amount of sales experience and leadership qualities that will positively impact and support our growth strategy for the UK market," says Alexander Glasmacher, Managing Director of ELOKON Holding. "He will be a key figure in expanding our UK footprint and in hiring and managing UK based service technicians, to enable us to even better support our strong UK customer base."
From its base in Germany and subsidiaries in the USA, UK and Poland, ELOKON has enjoyed substantial expansion in recent years, thanks in particular to its growing portfolio of safety and assistance systems targeted at forklift trucks, automated guided vehicles and mobile robots. "ELOKON is the de facto global thought-leader in the development of innovative, high-quality safety systems and solutions for intralogistics. We are only at the beginning of what will be possible with the technology now available to us and anticipate strong demand in the coming years,” said Gavin Tull.
