Mr King was part of the start-up of CTE UK in 2002 and has worked with the company since then. However, he is also heavily involved in low level access manufacturer Power Towers and it is this business that he will now focus on. Power Towers has been successful is developing low height products, with customers including Nationwide, Hire Station and Riwal.

Michele Hillebrand, the CTE Spa manager who is also managing director of CTE UK, said; “On behalf of the management and all employees of both CTE Spa and CTE UK, I would like to thank Brian for his past contribution to the success of CTE in the UK, and wish him much good luck for the future.”

Mr King said; “I really enjoyed my 10/11 years with CTE, and think that I am leaving CTE UK at the right time and in good hands.
