New area sales manager
29 September 2021
MITSUBISHI FORKLIFT Trucks dealership Alto Handling (incorporating Bristol Forklifts) welcomes Rachel Bury as the new area sales manager for the South West.
With 15 years' experience in the sector, Rachel brings a wealth of knowledge gained from working for key names in the industry such as Still and Linde, as well as independent dealerships.
“This was a great opportunity to join Alto and become an important part of a growing business,” said Rachel. “I’ve always tried to make a difference everywhere I’ve worked and I’m looking forward to continuing that here and helping the company develop even further.”
“From the very first day I arrived I’ve been incredibly impressed with the setup here. Alto is a great company in its own right, and holds itself to the highest of standards, but being supported by the nationwide Mitsubishi Forklift Trucks dealer network brings so many extra benefits for the customers. For example, on the rare occasions when one of our engineers may not have a key part, being in the network means that part can be with us quickly and the customer has minimum downtime.”
As for the trucks themselves, it’s been the quality, value, and depth of the Mitsubishi Forklift Trucks range that has been most readily apparent to Rachel.
“Sales is all about finding the right fit for the customer. It’s about understanding their very specific needs. Having a range that’s this complete and covers so many uses really makes it that much easier. Learning that a number of these trucks have won awards for their forward-thinking design and innovation was not surprising in the slightest.”
Rachel’s appointment is part of ongoing plans to grow the MFT presence in the area and better serve the materials handling needs of businesses from Cornwall to Bristol.
“Having worked right throughout the South West during her career, Rachel’s experience and expertise will prove invaluable in extending Alto’s reach across the region.” explains Paul Shock, Sales Director of Alto Handling Limited and Bristol Forklifts.
“She knows the people, the types of industries, and the particular challenges faced by businesses in the area, so I can see that we’ve gained a real asset for the team.”
