Danutek, has added to its team of technical experts to enhance its support in Europe.

Altus Group, a leading distributor of capital equipment for the electronics assembly industry in the UK and Ireland, together with its daughter company, Danutek, has added to its team of technical experts to enhance its support in Europe.

As the company expands, a more comprehensive portfolio of technical equipment is being adopted requiring high levels of technical knowledge to maintain. Altus took the decision to employ a further four members of staff carefully chosen for their experience within the industry.

“All of Altus and Danutek’s 35 staff have many years industry production and test experience, with 30 having formal engineering qualifications to ensure we can offer the knowledge required to guarantee an unrivalled service,” said Richard Booth, managing director of Altus.

“With the installation of more varied and highly technical equipment, there are now 21 after sales support staff employed to ensure all enquiries are supported. Whilst the sales team has remained constant, Altus has recently felt that adding to the team would give key customers a better understanding and overview of new and improved products.

We have not only expanded the team in the UK, but added to the Hungarian, Romanian and Bulgarian sales teams, who are part of Danutek. This staff development will help to grow value added services for our customers and add to the melting pot of technical knowledge already found within the staff at Altus.” www.altusgroup.co.uk


Altus Group Ltd, signed a representation agreement with Yamaha in 2014 and have already achieved several significant sales successes and built upon the substantial Yamaha installed base which already existed in the UK and Ireland.

Altus Group was formed in 2001 to support the UK and Irish market for Surface Mount Technology, capital equipment for every process, peripheral equipment, spares and consumables and most importantly excellent service support.

The Altus Group product line has evolved over the years with carefully selected suppliers who offer ‘best in class’ products at cost effective prices, from world leading brands.

The Altus Team has a network of highly skilled technical sales specialists, applications and service engineers, providing local support across the UK and Ireland.

In 2005 sister company Danutek was formed with offices in Hungary and Romania to service the needs of local customers and multi-national companies with manufacturing facilities in the Central and Eastern European marketplace. www.altusgroup.co.uk
