Fortis Battery Care has appointed Leigh Mason to the position of sales and marketing director. Mason joins Fortis directly from the Nilfisk Group where he held the position of sales director for eight years.
Fortis Battery Care has over 25 years’ experience in the industrial battery sector and provides forklift batteries, services and products across the UK. Services range from battery and charger supply, topping contracts, and service and rental across all brands and all technologies. Fortis is also the UK distributor for Micropower battery chargers.
Leigh Mason said: “I have joined Fortis at such an exciting time. I will be helping to realise ambitious growth plans that are based on a solid foundation of experience, service innovation and cost reduction for clients. We are fortunate to already have an impressive portfolio of blue chip clients including the John Lewis Partnership, Booker Distribution, Nestle, Aldi, and B&Q. Our privately owned, independent status allows us to act as an unbiased ‘voice of reason’ between the fort lift truck provider and the end user. Total cost of ownership is something we take very seriously and our existing client case studies enable us to demonstrate how we significantly improve our clients’ return on investment. I do believe that we are the industry’s best kept secret but that is certainly set to change!”
