By Euan Youdale25 January 2023
Time Manufacturing is opening a new Versalift customer support, manufacturing and sales operation in Dublin, Republic of Ireland.
The investment in Versalift Ireland is designed to enhance support to existing and new customers in the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland across the range of Time brands.
It will also see the appointment of service engineers to provide customers with field-based technical support. Head of after sales, Neil Ashton will lead the support team, while Niall Brannigan will manage sales and sales development.
Andy Bray, managing director of Versalift Ireland said, “We are committed to the vision of delivering best-in-class customer support within the island of Ireland.
“Our investment in this new Irish entity is focused on ensuring owners and users of our equipment maintain the highest levels of productivity and we recognise the value of these assets are best optimised through localised OEM support.”
The new facility, in Tallaght, Dublin, will officially open in February and follows a number of recent acquisitions by parent company Time. As such, the site will provide manufacturing, warehousing, sales, service and spare parts and training for Versalift products, as well as Ruthmann Steiger and Ecoline truck mounts, Ruthmann Bluelift spiders and France Elévateur and Movex vehicle mounts.
Ashton added, “Versalift has been a market leader in Ireland for over 20 years and we are expanding the brand portfolio at a rapid pace. This requires significant investment, and I am delighted to head up this new support team and continue to develop relationships with our valued customers in Ireland.”
