Entwistle said: “Andrew has a wealth of experience in the wider crane industry and is a welcome addition to the executive team at Ainscough Crane Hire”.
This looks like a good move on Ainscough's part, and a very positive sign that the new chief executive has a good feel for people. Winter is widely respected in the crane industry and - unless things have changed significantly in the past year or so - by many of the 'rank and file' employees at the company. Very encouraging.
