Otto restructures its UK business
20 May 2008
Environmental Solutions Europe BV (ESE), Europe's leading supplier of containers and waste handling equipment, has re-organised its UK business by incorporating HN Logistic Systems into its sister company Otto UK Ltd.
The highly regarded bin lift business of HN Logistics will now be managed alongside the container business within Otto UK.
The complementary nature of the two activities is expected to benefit the company's interface with its customers through a broader range of products from a single source.
With effect from April 1st its innovative specialist vehicles' including the front-loader and side-loader products will be handled by the company's distributor Dennis Eagle, though production and product development will remain firmly within the ESE Group. The company will also withdraw completely from the UK market for rear loading refuse collection vehicles.
These changes will apply only to the United Kingdom; all other European activities of ESE and its subsidiaries remain unaffected.
Otto UK Ltd intends to remain fully engaged with the UK bin lift market and will be introducing three new products with exciting new features during the next few months.
"These changes will consolidate Otto's strong market position with its long established products," affirmed Max Ryan, Managing Director of Otto UK Ltd.
"It will enable us to provide our customers with integrated solutions for refuse containers and container handling equipment, of the kind no other company can offer, today and into the future."
