Malcolm Cuthbertson has been appointed as managing director of Weinig UK.

He succeeds Neil Forbes who, after three years in the UK, has returned to his former position as head of Weinig Australia.

Mr Cuthbertson has been with the Weinig Group for the past 12 years as a regional sales manager, initially with the Grecon and Dimter brands, and for the past 10 years he has represented the complete range of Weinig equipment.

A challenge for the future will be the continued integration of the Holz-Her brand into Weinig’s operations.
