Maybury Material Handling Welcomes New President, William Maybury

East Longmeadow, MA (February 21, 2024)Maybury Material Handling, a leading provider of industrial products and services to manufacturing, distribution, and warehousing customers throughout New England, has proudly announced a seamless transition of leadership as John Maybury, who served with distinction as the outgoing President, assumes the pivotal role of Chairperson, and John’s son, William Maybury, assumes the new role of President. 

“I am thrilled to introduce my son, Will Maybury as the newly appointed President of Maybury.” says John Maybury, former President. “With his proven track record of leadership and a visionary approach, he brings fresh perspectives and energy to the helm. This strategic move aligns with our commitment to continuity and leveraging the wealth of experience within our organization.”

John Maybury established Maybury Material Handling in 1976 and the company began by making benches, stools, and cabinets. From there, they got into warehouse racks and shelving and now they provide a lot of automated material handling products including conveyors, conveyor systems, lift trucks, and more. 

Will has been involved in the business for as long as he can remember. From taking out the trash when he was a young kid, to working in inventory, to learning how to install warehouse equipment, to then coming back in 2015 and working in the accounting department and serving as controller, Will has learned the business from various points of view.

This leadership transition has been in the works for a while, and both John and Will wanted it to be as seamless as possible – from the employee’s perspective, to the customer’s perspective, to their vendors’ perspective.

“It is a true honor to follow in my father’s footsteps and take on this responsibility,” says Will Maybury, newly appointed President of Maybury. “I am excited about the opportunities and challenges that lie ahead.”

John has adapted the business model and has grown Maybury exponentially from a few employees to now over 100 employees and has become a leader in the material handling industry.

“My commitment to working collaboratively with all members of our organization to achieve our goals will allow us to continue the positive momentum that has been set in motion,” says Will Maybury. “I am grateful for the support I have received thus far and for all the employees that live out Maybury’s mission and vision in everything they do.”
