Published on 08/12/14

CHARLOTTE, N.C. [Aug. 12, 2014] — With a strong focus on growing the retail business for its iconic Toter® brand, Wastequip® recently added a new position at its corporate headquarters. Andrew Bardsley has joined the Toter team as its first Vice President of the newly formed Retail Business Unit, announced CEO Marty Bryant.

Bardsley brings more than 20 years of global experience in the manufacturing and industrial markets, previously serving in engineering, marketing, sales, and product management roles at Ingersoll Rand and Atlas Copco. Prior to joining Wastequip, Bardsley acted as Global Assembly Business Leader for Ingersoll Rand. He earned his Bachelor of Engineering from the United Kingdom’s University of Nottingham, with continued engineering studies at East Warwickshire College, also in the U.K.

The addition of Bardsley’s senior leadership position will provide the strategic focus necessary to achieve the aggressive long-range growth plans Wastequip has for Toter’s consumer business. Part of that growth strategy includes shifting all manufacturing for Toter’s consumer products to the U.S. One of Bardsley’s key initiatives will be developing Toter’s ‘Made in America’ strategy to better meet consumer and retailer demand for products manufactured in the U.S.

As Vice President of Toter’s Retail Business Unit, Bardsley’s responsibilities will include business unit management including oversight of sales, marketing, and product development. He will analyze current and future market conditions, develop a long-term retail strategy, and implement tactical short-term actions.

Said Bryant, “We’re excited to welcome Andy into the Wastequip fold. Toter is a well-known brand with strong American roots, and our retail customers in particular are demanding American-made products. Andy will help us create a disciplined strategy around this key sales channel of our business. We believe there is great opportunity to expand Toter’s footprint in the retail channel, and we’re confident that Andy’s vast experience and strong established relationships will allow us to realize this opportunity.”
