Technical Sales

Best thing about working for R-Tech

Working with a great team to help customers choose the right equipment, accessories and consumables.

My unique contribution

Wide-ranging experience as a welder, manager of welding and in welding sales.

Listens to...

Rock and Electronica – especially on Planet Rock

Loves to eat...

Italian or a good curry.

Favourite sport

I’m not a team sport guy. MotoGP is my thing and Valentino Rossi is my hero.

After hours…

Working on my 2-stroke BSA and Yamaha 250 bikes.

Not many people know...

I really enjoy gardening – especially sitting back with a pint and admiring the new-mown lawn!

The welding project I’d most like to be involved with

Developing motorcycle racing frames for Grand Prix bikes in the 1980’s

Business philosophy...

Dot the i’s and cross the t’s. Ask the right questions and listen carefully to the answers.

Top tip for R-Tech customers

Do your research. Take time to set your machine up correctly. And don’t be afraid to ask us for advice.

Why buy from us?

For the great value and superb pre- and after-sales support.
