CGTech is expanding and restructuring its UK operations. The company says this is in response to the continued expansion of the VERICUT user base for both CNC machine simulation, verification and optimisation, and growing use of the VERICUT Composites Applications Suite for advanced non-metallic materials.
From May 2018, the company will segregate the UK into three distinct areas, with a dedicated sales engineer supporting existing and potential customers within each.
“The appointment of two new sales engineers is testament to the positive growth plans of CGTech in the UK, and their engineering experience and close contacts within in the various industry sectors will benefit the business,” Managing Director, Tony Shrewsbury, says. "Further appointments will be announced soon about the expansion of our technical support team to bolster this key service.”
