Alan Takes The Reins

1st May 2019

Alan Johnson has been appointed Director for the UK Palfinger distributorship, following Mark Rigby’s retirement in March. With more than 30 years’ experience in the lorry cranes sector, Alan joined the company in 2017 as Development Projects Manager before becoming General Manager in May 2018. “Since joining the team in 2017 I’ve worked on a broad range of projects which have given me the chance to build a strong interface between departments and people, many of whom I knew already from my time in previous roles in the industry.” “Becoming the General Manager of Palfinger UK in 2018 gave me additional exposure to the commercial elements of the business and importantly some great opportunities for increased involvement with customers and suppliers.” “I’m looking forward to working with my colleagues, our customers and suppliers to ensure that we remain a reliable, innovative business and the first-choice partner for customers across the UK. It’s a fact that one of the biggest strengths of Palfinger UK is our people. Additionally we have great resources at our disposal to add value to customers across the UK, as well as a fantastic core product from the global market leader, Palfinger.”
