Montracon has confirmed the appointment of Paul Avery (49) as managing director.
With nearly 30 years in the commercial vehicle manufacturing sector, Paul joins Montracon from trailer maker Schmitz Cargobull (UK), a company he joined 24 years ago. There he rose through the ranks from design engineer through engineering, research and development to general manager and then managing director – graduating in mechanical engineering and business management on the way.
In particular, Paul led Schmitz Cargobull’s successful development into new ‘high volume’ sectors to provide a broad product offering. He also led the development of a full range of ‘’one stop shop’’ services for customers.
On his appointment, Paul said: ‘I join Montracon, at a time when the business has a very healthy order book in what remains a buoyant market. Montracon already makes the widest model range available from any European trailer manufacturer and I intend to use my experience to build on this and the company’s other strengths, to drive further growth and to consolidate Montracon’s position as market leader.’
