Former boss Jukka Vaattovaara will still have some input in the UK market but will now spend more time on Avant’s global activities.

Mr Ala-Korpi said: "I am delighted to be given the opportunity to build on the great work carried out by Jukka over the last few years which has resulted in the UK becoming one of Avant's strongest markets. In particular, I am keen to extend both the dealer and Avant Hire networks to ensure we offer the very best support for our growing range of products covering access platforms, demolition machines and, of course, the compact loaders."
