Linde Material Handling has appointed Ulrike Just as its new Managing Director.

Just was formerly Vice President Business Development at Linde Material Handling where she has been responsible for leading the development of the LMH EMEA Strategy 2027 for the last three years.

Speaking about her new role, Just said: “I am joining the UK business at an exciting time as we embark on one of the biggest transformations in the Linde MH UK history.

“By the end of 2020 all regional locations are planned to merge into one single business unit, within the legal entity of Linde MH UK Ltd. This important milestone in our business aims to enable us to focus even more on our customer’s needs. 

“Our regional network has always been our key strength with 19 sales and service locations in the UK & Ireland. With the new organisation structure, our customers can expect to continue to experience the same high level of service, except now, we aim to provide one consistent approach throughout the UK.

“I am very much looking forward to leading the UK business during this exciting time.”

Ulrike Just replaces Max Sammartano who has taken up a new role as Executive Vice President Business Transformation at KION Group (the owner of Linde MH).
