News: New MD for Rotherham's Redirack


Redirack, the pallet racking and mezzanine floor manufacturer based in Rotherham, has appointed Andrew Forsythe as their new managing director.

Andrew had been Redirack's company secretary and commercial legal adviser since its acquisition by the current owners in 2004 and present MD, Phil Culling becomes chairman with Jack Holden remaining operations director.

Phil said: "Having worked with Andrew for over eight years I am delighted that he has taken on this senior role. He will re-invigorate the business despite the current market difficulties, and put in place an ambitious plan for the future."

"Since completing the MBO over five years ago we have grown Redirack, introduced new products and forged partnerships with new technologies: All good stuff. But this has meant we overlooked the needs of the business and particularly our people. Andrew will prove invaluable in assessing what needs to be done and concentrating on implementing new systems and procedures."

Andrew said "Having worked with Phil and Jack prior to and more importantly since the MBO I had no hesitation in taking-on this exciting role. 2009 has been a challenging year for everyone, but Redirack is in good shape to take full advantage of the chinks of light that appear in the market place, overseas opportunities and the inevitable upturn in the economy.

"Initially I will be concentrating on organisational governance, business methods and the structure of the business. I can't wait to get into the market place and look forward to visiting customers and suppliers alike."

Redirack has an 100,000 sq ft manufacturing plant in Kilnhurst and has over 100 employees. The management team bought Redirack from the Norwegian based multinational Dexion Group Limited.
