Washington, Tyne & Wear, U.K. (14th July 2017) Snorkel is pleased to announce the appointment of KH Lift ApS as its new official distributor for Denmark.

KH Lift ApS is a newly formed company that launched on July 1st 2017, but behind the fresh branding and new name lies a familiar face to Snorkel’s distribution network. Karsten Haahr, formerly owner of KK Materiel, leads the new business, as he moves back into equipment sales following three years running an equipment rental business.

Karsten Haahr has over 25 years experience working with UpRight Powered Access and Snorkel equipment, during his time as a Sales Manager with Treffco A/S, and then at KK Materiel, before it was sold in 2014. 

From their new facilities in Vejle, Denmark, KH Lift will provide new Snorkel lift sales, service and spare parts for the Danish market.  In addition, KH Lift will handle warranty calls on existing Snorkel lifts in the field, and will hold stocks of spare parts for older Snorkel and UpRight lifts within the market.  Led by Karsten, KH Lift will launch with a workshop manager and two field service technicians, with plans to expand this team to a total of six people within six months. 

Karsten Haahr, said, “It is an absolute pleasure to be back within the equipment sales sector, and working again with my friends at Snorkel. At KH Lift, we are already investing heavily in our team, premises and spare parts to ensure that we deliver unrivalled levels of customer service and build the Snorkel name in Denmark.” 

The appointment was managed by Henrik Skibsted, who joined Snorkel in May 2017 as Territory Manager for Scandinavia, reporting to Enrique Garcia Delgado, Snorkel Regional Sales Director for Europe. Of the appointment, Henrik said, “Karsten has significant experience working with UpRight and Snorkel products, so I am confident that Snorkel is in good hands in the Danish market.  In all of his businesses, Karsten has always worked hard to support his customers, and I know that KH Lift will be no different.”

Enrique Garcia Delgado, Snorkel Regional Sales Director for Europe, said, “It is wonderful to be able to welcome Karsten back to the Snorkel family. I know that he is well-liked and well-respected throughout our team and the industry, and we look forward to drawing upon his knowledge and experience to develop the Snorkel brand within the Danish market.”

KH Lift ApS was launched on 1st July 2017, and more information can be found on their website at
