Our business activities in Great Britain started in 1995 with the takeover of Altenberg Gitterrostwerke in Essen. Under the name Altenberg UK, the parent company operated a subsidiary at the time in Dumbarton/Scotland, for which John Coll was responsible. In 2000 the firm of the company changes to MEISER UK Ltd. In spite of strong national competition on the British mainland, the sales team manages to establish itself and MEISER in Great Britain, while increasing the level of awareness of press locked grating.
In 2007 John Coll tackles a new challenge within the MEISER Group and takes over an executive function at Lionweld MEISER in Dubai. The sales office in Scotland is now managed by Gerry McGurk. In order to strengthen the company's presence in Great Britain, a second sales office is opened in Middlesbrough in the county of Cleveland This branch concentrates primarily on the acquisition of new customers, as well as support for major British plant manufacturers. Furthermore, MEISER succeeds in making a name for itself as a specialist for shelves and platform linings in the field of high bay systems.
With Les Hannan we are able to obtain the services of a very experienced and recognised expert in the grating industry for MEISER. In 2008 he assumes overall responsibility for MEISER UK and manages the new office in Middlesbrough at the same time. The development in turnover over the last few years is very pleasing, as evidenced by the high growth rates even during the difficult economic crisis. The further expansion of our market share is the declared aim and will continue the successful developments of the past few years.
