Speaking of the move, Jeffrey said: "Time Manufacturing continues to expand its brand offerings and products across Europe and around the world. Kim has the experience and skill set to successfully move us forward. Since his appointment as managing director in 2016, Jensen has successfully transformed what was a family run business into a private equity owned business and has been instrumental in strengthening the Versalift Europe organisation by building up new, and resilient relationships between all the Versalift groups.”

He took over his current role from Per Cæsar Torp in January 2018.

Jensen said: "l'm really proud to be able to make a key contribution in bringing our fantastic European teams even closer together, not only to ensure a successful implementation of our strategy, but also to secure that Time Manufacturing will be our customers preferable partner in the future to come."
