Geesinknorba appoints new UK Business Director

Published:  11 July, 2012

Geesinknorba, one of Europe's leading refuse collection vehicle manufacturers, has appointed Mr Bob Billington to lead its UK operation as UK Business Director.

Mr Billington has an impressive record in the waste and recycling industry. He was previously UK and European Sales Director for American-based BHS (Bulk Handling Systems) which manufactures and supplies material recovery facilities.

He has also worked for several companies in the waste collection sector including Biffa Waste Services Ltd and Greenstar Environmental Ltd and is a member of the Chartered Institution of Wastes Management.

Mr Billington said: “I'm delighted to be joining a company with such a reputation for both innovation and customer service.

“Our products have led the industry in green technology and operational efficiency and speak for themselves. And our staff have worked hard to earn that reputation for customer service and it is part of the culture here that I'm keen to maintain and develop.

“Now, after several changes in recent years, Geesinknorba also has both the sustainable structure and financial stability to enable us to compete more successfully than ever for new business all over the UK.

“I have already met some of our customers and they have been very encouraged by the shape we are now in and in particular the benefits this will bring to them.

“And I'm looking forward to meeting other customers and potential new customers in the months ahead as we start a new chapter in this company's success.”
