Following strong growth, Avantek has announced two new customer-focused additions as field service engineers.

Andy Weir, who joined the Avantek team in July, has relocated from Scotland, where he’d worked for many years as an engineer with Window Supply Company. Andy is said to have a comprehensive knowledge across the Supercut, Urban and Wegoma machinery ranges.

“Andy didn’t waste any time jumping straight in. On his second day he joined the team to help install a Supercut at a customer’s factory,” commented Avantek Machinery sales director, Jamie Munday.

Michael Poletko joined in September and will be focusing on setting up customers with the Graf Synergy range as well as adding support to the whole team. Michael is reported to have extensive industry knowledge of PVC-U fabrication machinery and years of experience in working with Graf Synergy’s cutting-edge machinery.

Avantek now has eight full-time engineers, servicing customers all across the UK and Ireland.

“The demand this year has been phenomenal, and it was essential for us to further invest in people to ensure that Avantek continues to provide the exceptional service and support that we are known for. I love it when a plan comes together!” commented Jamie. “To say that none of us knew what was likely to happen just a few short months ago when the pandemic began, we feel incredibly privileged to be able to strengthen our team even further – something our parent company Quanex Building Products fully supports.”
