Apr 29, 2021

Altus Group Ltd has welcomed a new Service Support Engineer to bring knowledge and expertise to the aftersales team and support customers investing in equipment from the most recent pre-eminent suppliers, Asscon, Heller and Essemtec.

Steve Wood-Antill is an exceptionally skilled engineer with a proven track record in the sector having spent his whole career working within the electronics industry and most recently as Technical Director at Zen Production Equipment.

Joe Booth, Altus CEO said: “We are delighted to welcome Steve to our aftersales team ensuring that we can offer the very best support to users of our new brands in the UK and Ireland.

“As many of you will already know, Steve brings a wealth of hands on fault finding and preventative maintenance knowledge. His experience and diverse technical understanding will be a huge asset to the team, giving us the ability to better service our customers. We welcome him to his new role and wish him every success.”

Steve added: “I am very excited to start my new role as Service Support Engineer at Altus. I will provide first class technical support and help customers to meet their ever demanding goals and objectives, whilst sharing the details of Altus’ range of latest technology and innovations. I am looking forward to continuing to develop my current relationships and building new ones with all the Altus customers.”

With expertise in much of the new equipment recently introduced at Altus, Steve will be the ‘go-to’ for those purchasing SMT solutions from Essemtec, reflow oven technology from Heller Industries and vapour phase reflow technology from Asscon.

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.
