Richard Ruse has been appointed general manager at Donaldson Timber Engineering’s (DTE) Warrington branch.

Ruse has been in the industry for 34 years, originally working for Southern Evans as a trainee designer. During his career he also worked as branch manager at Palgrave Brown, Widnes, and most recently he was northern regional sales manager at Pasquill.

Jonathan Fellingham, DTE’s managing director, said: “With a proven track record in both production and team management, Richard is a welcome addition to the DTE family. He is committed to efficient, customer-focused service and has a strong sense of how to develop our presence in the North West.”

The Warrington branch, which opened in 2015, exclusively manufactures roof trusses and supplies customers in Cumbria, West Yorkshire, Staffordshire, Shropshire, and North Wales.

Ruse said: “Joining DTE is an exciting new opportunity and I’m looking forward to getting stuck in; meeting our customers and working with the team. DTE is a well-respected company that does great work right across the country, and I can’t wait to see the Warrington branch continue to grow.”
