As the UK’s leading provider of deburring and surface finishing equipment and systems, Ellesco has developed a reputation for high levels of customer support and service. This will now be enhanced by the appointment of Armin Berndt to the role of applications engineer.
He will be using his extensive knowledge of the sector to provide detailed customer support across the full range of equipment offered by Ellesco, whether that be its range of consumable items for deburring and finishing or the machines and systems that make use of those consumables, specifically Timesavers’ range of rotary brush and belt deburring, edge rounding, finishing and oxide removal machines.
“This is a fantastic opportunity to work with world-leading brands and be a part of Ellesco’s continuing success in this area of manufacturing,” says Armin Berndt.
In addition to Timesavers, Ellesco represents several major brands including Autopulit providing a range of fully automatic and CNC machines for polishing, abrasive belt grinding, deburring and micro-finishing of metal parts: VG Machines for sanding, grinding and brushing machines for processing wood and metal components; Peitzmeier whose range is designed for surface processing of stainless steel, steel and aluminium, with emphasis on weld-seams and grinding and polishing surfaces; KBM with its range of continuous belt machinery for dressing, blending, graining and brushing; WMS, which is expert in delivering automated solutions for deburring, including robotic handling systems.
“Armin’s appointment comes at an exciting time for Ellesco, after we finished 2017 with a record order intake in December and this positive trend has continued in the first quarter of 2018,” says Vincent Simonis, managing director of Ellesco. “Having additional resource to provide ongoing customer support is vital in maintaining this momentum and Armin will have a wide-reaching role to drive sales growth across the business as well as providing applications expertise to further enhance the productivity of our customers.”
