Lifting Solutions of Thurnscoe has appointed a new Sales Engineer for the southern region of the UK. Greg Fardell has worked his way up in the industry over the past 10 years and has joined the company with the aim of helping Lifting Solutions become the UK leader in the supply and inspection of material handling and lifting equipment.
Greg was previously employed with Morris Material Handling Ltd. The father of one went from being a temporary cover in the summer of 1997 to semi skilled fitter and finally senior sales engineer (internal), taking night classes for two years and graduating with an HNC in business and marketing. Now, he’s ready to “move onward and upwards and begin a fresh challenge with a new and strong company”.
He says: “Lifting Solutions has great facilities and management, with excellent knowledge and talent throughout the company, enabling them to deliver on almost any application or solution. Knowing you have this back up - and the ability to say ‘yes’ to your customer no matter what the enquiry - is satisfying and rewarding for us all.
“I know I can develop further and progress within lifting Solutions. Creating a new southern customer base for the company and new relationships from scratch will be a challenge, but it’s one I am looking forward to and that I believe I can rise to.”
In his free time, Greg is kept on his toes by his 17-month-old son. But whenever he can, the Shepshed resident indulges his passion for sports, representing the England Bowling Association at the international level and playing football for Bardon Hill and Long Whatton football clubs.
