Lifting Equipment Store Names Export Manager



Feb. 8, 2020 - The Lifting Equipment Store, a material-handling-equipment supplier, has named Charmaine Jennings into the newly created position of export manager.

Jennings reports to George Dunn, general manager of the company, which is headquartered in Stourbridge, West Midlands, England.

The role will see Jennings managing the business’s range of international distributors, developing accounts, and negotiating contracts.

Jennings has 20 years of sales experience, with much of her career focused on material-handling equipment. Most recently, she was national sales manager at lifting-equipment supplier Arbil Ltd. She has also had roles at GAP Hire Solutions, Hendrik Veder Group, and William Hackett Lifting Products.

After a successful 2020, Lifting Equipment Store is preparing for further international growth in 2021, with a particular focus on Africa and Australasia. Last September, the company expanded into the U.S. by opening Lifting Equipment Store USA in Houston, Texas.

This appointment sees the Lifting Equipment Store team expand its staff to six members.

Will Dunn, CEO, Lifting Equipment Store, said: “I’m really pleased to be welcoming Charmaine to the team.  She's got a knack for international business, she's got drive, and she knows how to handle the market. Most importantly, she's not scared to dive straight in. I’m looking forward to working with her as we continue to build our international presence.”

Jennings added: “I’m excited to be joining this forward-thinking company, and to be putting my own personal touch on the export side of the business. Like many salespeople I get a buzz out of closing every single sale, and so I’m looking forward to exploring countries and sectors that are open to buying British.”

Part of the Kingsway Corporation Group, Lifting Equipment Store was established in 2012. It offers lifting equipment, material-handling equipment, and safety equipment. It has a five-star rating on Trust Pilot.
