RDS Technology distributors for the South East and the South West have announced a merger and the creation of a new distribution company.
The Managing Directors of RDS North Eastern (Mr Tony Heath and Mrs Jan Heath) retired towards the end of 2015 after more than 26 years dedicated to the sale and distribution of RDS products.
The Heaths’ Lincoln-based business was subsequently acquired by RDS South East and RDS South West and a new company; RDS MME was created, to maintain and enhance the high levels of customer care and field support in all three regions.
RDS MME (Mobile Machinery Electronics) is headquartered in Essex with a brand new business hub opened in Wiltshire to manage their extensive network of Account Managers and Service Engineers.
The RDS Management Team is headed by Roger Hawker and John Evans, who between them have over 50 years’ experience with RDS weighing technology. To ensure that they continue to deliver exceptional service Steve Chidley has been promoted to Operations Manager and will oversee the existing Service Engineers as well as 2 new recruits now in place. Jon O’Loughlin has been appointed to Sales Manager, Belinda Capstaff-Taylor will continue to manage customer accounts and Bianca Skudder has been appointed Company Secretary.
The RDS MME team has been further fortified by the addition of Graeme Melvill, Account Manager for the North East region.
Together the new team has over 100 years of combined knowledge and experience in RDS weighing technology.
RDS Technology’s additional UK distributors, RDS North Western, RDS Scotland and David McCollum in Northern Ireland are unaffected by the change and continue to operate as normal.
