It’s been yet another busy month for ATi, with lots of customer training sessions, large orders with quick turnaround times, exhibitions, new installations, devising solutions to complex problems and discussing business developments with distributors and end users.
Throughout June, ATi hosted a number of training days both in the UK and Europe for customers and distributors covering a variety of applications for our range of monitors. These visits and workshops were a great opportunity for us to see some of you again and catch up!
General Manager Mike Strahand and Technical Manager Chris McTear first flew over to Spain for two intensive days of training with our Spanish distributors Mejoras, which was a real success! The first day involved Mike leading the training sessions for chemical, process and marketing, with Chris taking over the reins on day two for in-depth instrumentation training. On a rare moment of down time, Mike managed to sample the delights of a local coffee-based drink only available in Cartagena. “Asiatico” is made from a “café solo” with a dollop of condensed milk, “drop” of cognac, a few drops of Liquor 43, a couple of coffee beans, slice of lemon peel and a stick of cinnamon….delicious!
Following on from ATi’s visit earlier in the year, Mike then flew over to Hildersheim near Hannover for three days to meet our new distributors, Heyl Neomeris. A number of ozone training sessions with a variety of end users took place, including Letzner, an ultra-pure water systems manufacturer from Hückeswagen near Cologne. Ever one to combine business and pleasure (especially where food is concerned!) Mike was able to sample the local delights of Lubben while he was visiting an ozone installation at a spa in the town. Lubben is the world capital of gherkins! Next stop was Berlin to deliver start up assistance visit to a Letzner installation at well-known customer Bausch and Lomb.
Back in the UK, Sales Manager Tristen Preger is booked up all month with NephNet training for Severn Trent Water and United Utilities. This comes on the back of ATi receiving another order for more than 100 NephNets in June, destined for major UK utilities companies.
With more exciting new technology currently being developed, NephNets flying off the shelf, a big installation project taking place at Thames Water and a new water quality framework with a leading utilities company, the next few months is set to continue this recent busy form!
