Bastian Material Handling (BMH) recently expanded its operations into the Atlanta, Georgia area to better serve Southern customers. The new office will be managed by Bill Hawthorne, the former vice president of sales and marketing for Hytrol Conveyor Company.
While at Hytrol, Hawthorne supported the growth of 80 domestic distributors and 23 international distributors.

In addition, Hawthorne has extensive experience in a wide range of vertical industries and has worked with notable BMH customers including Cabela’s, CVS, King’s Hawaiian, Lear Seating and Starbucks.
“I am very excited about being a part of the BMH family, and to be back in Atlanta where my family and long time friends are,” Hawthorne commented. “I am very blessed to have this opportunity and look forward to sharing the solutions that Bastian and all of their resources can provide to our customers.”
Hawthorne can be contacted at 770-333-0200. The Atlanta office is located at 2675 Paces Ferry Road, SE, Atlanta, Georgia.
