Haith has revealed a new logo and branding to reflect a change in the organisation’s structure following the retirement of Steve Haith, former Managing Director of Haith Industrial, and Chris Haith former Service Director. Haith Industrial has merged into Tickhill Engineering ….no division/streamlined accounts, everyone under Haith umbrella.
The vegetable handling side of the business will continue to look after the needs of farmers, growers, packers and food processors, supplying them with everything they need from in-take, washing and polishing through to grading and packing. The business’s industrial side will deliver materials handling solutions and water treatment and recycling solutions for customers across a broad range of sectors.
“The new structure will make it easier for our customers to access the machines and services they need,” says Duane. “It will also give us a solid foundation on which to grow the company as we enter this new era. It’s a very exciting time for Haith and as we look to the future.
“As well as the new management team, we have also introduced a fresh new logo and advertising. A new website is also under development.
“We are also cementing our relationship with GRIMME and looking forward to a relaxation of restrictions so that we can stage a series of open days to talk to growers about the benefits that our strategic partnership offers them.”
The changes come as the company says goodbye to two members of the Haith family.
Steve Haith started working for the family business in 1968 when it was based in Tickhill. Steve gained knowledge of all areas of the operation, beginning in the workshop as a fabricator. In 1983, Steve became Managing Director of Haith Industrial and took over developing the materials handling and wastewater treatment division, growing it into a multi-million-pound business.
Chris Haith joined Haith Industrial as fabricator and welder, spending his first six years with the company in Worksop before relocating to Haith Engineers at the Tickhill site. After ten years of undertaking onsite installation and service work, Chris became factory manager of Haith’s current Armthorpe factory. In 1995 Chris moved into sales before becoming head of large site installations in 2010.
The brothers received an engraved crystal plaque from their friends and colleagues at the end of a celebratory lunch.
Haith’s heritage goes back to 1964 and since then, the company has grown to be the UK’s leading designers and manufacturers of vegetable handling equipment. Its range of grading, washing, bulk handling, weighing, pre-pack systems and water treatment solutions are relied upon by some of the world’s largest food producers and packing companies, along with farmers of all sizes in the UK and overseas.
