Palacioglu officially joined the JCB team earlier this month, having moved from Turkey-based access equipment manufacturer ELS Lift.

In his role, Palacioglu will also head up JCB Access Products’ five-year growth plan in the region and in doing so will lead all market development initiatives for the Middle East, while offering his knowledge and support across the Europe, Middle East and Africa (EMEA) markets.

“I’m excited to be apart of dedicated team; the product is very well received among the British, US and European rental companies,” said Palacioglu, “This gives us an advantage in the Middle East, with a world-class dealer network and after sales support fully committed to giving all our customers the JCB experience.”

Ahmed Shouman, general manager for the Middle East & Turkey welcomed Palacioglu to the team, “Alistair brings with him over 10 years of rich, extensive experience in the AWP industry working for AWP OEM’s and with dealers.”
