Head of global business development John Lines has joined Hill Engineering for the second time

The United Kingdom-based developer of the Tefra hydraulic quick coupler has recruited John Lines to head up a major drive to further develop its growing sales business.

John has extensive experience in the excavator attachment business including a previous role with Hill as sales and marketing director nine years ago.

In that time Hill has continued to develop attachments and the company said it now requires a dedicated focus to capitalise on to take it truly international, and to break into new, emerging markets through OEMs (original equipment manufacturers) and end users.

“Our portfolio is now in great demand in many key global markets and I will be working hard to support the efforts of the entire Hill team to satisfy the needs of our worldwide customers and partners.”
