One of Ransohoff’s long-standing UK distributors, David Holmes, is retiring at the end of 2020. In 2021, Ransohoff UK will merge with Unitech Washing Systems.
David Holmes, a long-standing representative of Ransohoff in the UK, has announced his retirement at the end of 2020. David Holmes has been designing and building cleaning machines for nearly 50 years and has represented Ransohoff and Blackstone-NEY Ultrasonics in Europe for over 23 years.
“It is bittersweet when your long-tenured people decide it is time to retire,” says Barney Bosse, CEO of Cleaning Technologies Group (CTG). “David Holmes has been with Ransohoff for decades leading our efforts in the UK and Europe. His dedication to the company has been outstanding, and David will be missed by his fellow co-workers and customers alike. We wish him all the best in retirement and many happy years with his family.”
Ransohoff UK will merge with the Brownhills, West Midlands-based company Unitech Washing Systems in January 2021. Colin Boocock, who has many years of involvement with CTG, will head up sales and support on all metal parts-cleaning projects with Unitech.
The two companies have a history of cooperation, as exemplified in an August 2020 partnership between CTG and Unitech to distribute specialty washers to the United States for the food and beverage industry. The Unitech Washing Systems team has over 75 years of experience designing and manufacturing standard as well as bespoke machines. Its broad and robust product line focuses on equipment ranging from tray, pan and utensil washers to sanitizing tunnels, bulk container washers and personal hygiene sanitization stations.
Unitech will support Ransohoff’s existing customers with sales of new equipment, parts, service and chemistry for machines, some of which are still working well after 30 years’ service.
