Following a successful recruitment drive, Altus, a leading supplier of capital equipment in the UK and Ireland, has expanded its skilled workforce with the introduction of a new Applications Engineer who will focus on the company’s range of inspection based products.
With a degree in mechanical engineering from Birmingham University, and a background in the same discipline, Kevin Suen is the ideal person to fill the role of Applications Engineer. Thanks to his broad knowledge of the innovative inspection platforms available from Altus and his technical expertise, he will play an integral role within the company.
‘’It is great to bring Kevin into the team and bolster our resources to further support our inspection customers,” said Anthony Oh, Operations Manager- Inspection Based Products.
“Over the last years we have made significant improvements to both our pre-sales and post-sales support for our customers. This has included the further development of our off-the-shelf training and applications packages. This has meant that we have added a significant amount of installations and new accounts to our partner list.
“Kevin will be a great asset in supporting our customers further and will certainly have a bright future within the Altus Team.’’
In recent years, the rate of adoption of inspection platforms across the UK and Ireland have grown at pace. To meet customer demands for Altus’ range of inspection equipment from leading suppliers like Koh Young, Kitov and Scienscope, and to ensure aftersales services are of the highest standard, Altus will continue to add skilled staff to its team.
Altus Group was formed in 2001 to support the UK and Irish market for Surface Mount Technology, capital equipment for every process, peripheral equipment, spares and consumables and most importantly excellent service support.
The Altus Group product line has evolved over the years with carefully selected suppliers who offer ‘best in class’ products at cost effective prices, from world leading brands.
The Altus Team has a network of highly skilled technical sales specialists, applications and service engineers, providing local support across the UK and Ireland.
In 2005 sister company Danutek was formed with offices in Hungary and Romania to service the needs of local customers and multi-national companies with manufacturing facilities in the Central and Eastern European marketplace.
