Automated warehouse solution provider TGW has appointed Paul Tovey to the position of projects director.

Paul joins Market Harborough-based TGW with 22 years of management and automation experience, which has been gained within the logistics sector.

For the past three years, Paul has been successfully running his own consultancy business and, for the last 17 months, has been an integral part of the TGW delivery team. Prior to this he was European director of logistics for Kimberly-Clark Europe. Paul has experience of integrating automated material handling systems from the client perspective, gained during his time at Kimberly-Clark, as well as managing a major TGW installation at Chorley.  

In his new role, Paul will head up the TGW project management team and will be responsible for planning and delivering automated warehouse solutions projects.

Andy Smith, TGW’s managing director, says: "As the size and number of the projects we work on has increased significantly over the last few years, we decided to increase the management resources and strengthen our team in this area.

"We’re delighted to welcome Paul to TGW. His drive and experience as a customer, coupled with his vast industry expertise, will be invaluable to our business and will give us new insight and support the future development of TGW.”  

Commenting on his appointment, Paul adds: "I’ve worked closely with TGW both as a customer and a consultant and I was impressed with what I saw from both sides of the fence. I joined the company because of the quality of its service offering and its reputation as a leading automated warehouse solution provider. I am looking forward to this opportunity to manage my team to drive the business forward.”

In his spare time Paul is race director for The Triumph Triple Challenge motorcycle racing series, which is a support event at British Superbike races.
