Top Thorite Key Account Manager transfers to Leeds

Thursday 9th August 2012

Thorite announces the transfer of one of its most knowledgeable and experienced engineers to the Leeds region: Martyn Allatt (50) has been selected to provide the highest standards of advice and support, for a wide variety of manufacturing and processing applications, to Thorite's customers located in and around Leeds.

Martyn joined Thorite 3 years ago as Key Account Manager based at Thorite's Huddersfield Sales & Service Centre. His new responsibilities will focus on providing application support and technical advice on pneumatic controls, circuit design, electric drives, energy saving, process control and hydraulics to manufacturing and processing industries in the Leeds area, as well as seeking new business opportunities.

Martyn brings a wealth of experience to his new role. Born in the UK, he moved to South Africa at the age of 12 and later gained a degree in Mechanical Engineering from Witwatersrand University in Johannesburg, leading to an appointment as an engineer with De Beers Diamond Mines. He then returned to the UK and concentrated on broadening his knowledge in technical sales, working for leading companies including Atlas Copco, Norgren, and Parker Electrical Drives, plus as a Field Sales Engineer for SMC.

Married with a 10 year old daughter, Martyn lives in Wakefield and divides his leisure time between DIY and motorsport.
