GNB Industrial Power (UK) Limited, a division of Exide Technologies, has appointed Vic Worthington to the newly created position of Contract Manager – Motive Power to reinforce its sales team and strengthen the links between sales and service.

With over 20 year’s experience in the materials handling industry Vic is ideally suited to this new role, which has been created to help support and manage substantial installations from the sale to the completion, and after-service.  Vic’s core responsibility will be to ensure all projects are fulfilled on schedule and on budget, and that all customer requirements are met.

“We work very closely with our clients and are constantly looking at ways we can improve our systems and even further enhance our customer relations,” explains Nigel Darke, Managing Director of GNB Industrial Power (UK) Ltd.  “It is because of this that we identified a need for a Contract Manager to help supervise new projects through the whole process – from sale to conclusion.”

Vic will be responsible for a portfolio of key customers, as well as guiding clients through the installation of Battery Transfer Systems.  He will be involved in a variety of projects to help companies save both space, with double and triple-tiered Systems, and time, with the system taking only two minutes to remove a discharged battery and a re-charged battery to be put in its place.  Vic will also manage retrospective installations, alongside coordinating complete turnkey solutions.

“Having worked in materials handling for many years, I know GNB Industrial Power is the company everyone in the industry respects.  Its reputation for product innovation and exceptional customer care precedes it, and they are just a few of the reasons I am delighted to be joining the team,” comments Vic Worthington. 

Nigel concludes, “I would like to take this opportunity to welcome Vic to GNB and I am confident he will be instrumental in helping us build an even more successful business.”
