Vicki Allen, whom I have known for a number of years. She has an excellent and proven reputation within her field and a wealth of knowledge of this industry. She brings onboard some fantastic relationships and a passion for the product that will enable us to hit the ground running and I have every confidence that Vicki will make this expansion of the business a huge success!"

Allen added: “I am thrilled to be joining the team at Mawsley Machinery. Having got to know and love the Manitou equipment during my time in my previous role I am extremely excited to have the opportunity of developing the Mawsley Manitou access platform division, which exclusively covers a large portion of the UK. My experience over the years with market leading platforms and extensive used equipment trading will undoubtedly be of benefit in my new role, especially as we will consider all trade ins against new purchases, to provide customers with a smooth and easy route to purchase.”
Mawsley was established in 1981 to sell the Bomag compaction equipment and Hydrovane compressors. It also handles Yanmar mini excavators, Ammann compaction equipment and Compair compressors as well a range of horticultural and other small equipment. Earlier this year Manitou acquired a majority stake in the company after the company served as a UK dealer for more than 30 years.
