Bomag GB has appointed Stuart Truckel as its new managing director, following the departure of its longstanding leader, Alan Batty. 

Truckel, who has almost 25 years of construction industry experience, has previously worked within the aggregates and waste industries at Finning UK, and was formerly an export markets and product development director for Land Rover parts supplier Bearmach.

Described by Bomag as being “well-placed to navigate” the construction markets post-pandemic and post-Brexit, Truckel replaces Alan Batty, who has retired after leading the manufacturer’s UK business for 18 years.

Bomag said, “Alan has been instrumental in achieving market leader status for Bomag GB in the compaction industry, having successfully navigated the pandemic and Brexit periods, and won contracts with HS2 – taking it to £37.5m turnover and a 35-person team.”

Truckel added, “Alan has left a strong legacy, which in turn leaves a very strong business and one that will sustainably embrace the new product introductions and the exciting years ahead with HS2 and other projects. 

“I’m looking forward to leading the business through its next phase of growth.”
