With renewed focus on their extensive no dig product range, Tracto-Technik UK Ltd (TT-UK) has set out to grow the business in the UK and the export markets served. To make the best of the opportunities, Roger Atherton is appointed area sales manager for Scotland and The North, Middle East and Southern Africa.


Atherton has been with TT-UK for more than 30 years and has a wealth of knowledge and experience in all trenchless applications and he will share his expertise with the newly appointed area sales engineer for Scotland and The North, Paul Heath. Scotsman Heath has an aviation engineering background, but also ran his own business in the past, giving him the ideal background for the sales engineers role which aims to improve our local customer service capabilities.

Heath is joined in this new role by Stephen Greatbank, who will represent Tracto-Technik in the Greater Manchester Area, having previous successfully covered that region as a suction excavation technician.

With new product launches, more interesting innovation opportunities, and distribution development challenges on the horizon, the company is appointing Matthew Izzard as business development director. Izzard will be instrumental in shaping and implementing the company’s plans for the future. He brings with him a wealth of experience in trenchless technology, and especially the horizontal directional drilling sector.

“We have spent some time thinking about where we want to be in 5 to 10 years time, and now we need to put our plans into action,” said Roger Wahl, managing director. “These appointments are getting us on the way towards our ambition to getting closer to our customers, further improving our after sales capabilities and becoming the premier solution provider in the NoDig sector”
