Baumann has appointed Gary Chapman as president of Baumann Canada, as the company looks to build on investments made in the North American market.
Chapman will oversee the appointment of new dealers as well as support existing dealer, Cervus Equipment.
Chapman has extensive experience of the materials handling industry, and particularly the long load sector.
The size of the Canadian sideloader market remains relatively modest, yet the ability of sideloader equipment to carry long loads over greater distances has led to a growing number of enquiries amongst Canadian lumber, metals and extrusions businesses, the company notes.
