In an ever changing technological and economic climate, Bedford based TT-UK and it's hardworking team continue to build on their successes, offering turn-key methods and equipment solutions to Trenchless Technology problems and continued improvements in the method of installing or replacing pipe and cables underground.
An example of TT-UK's innovation was the development of a continuous PE pipe pushing machine, Slip-Fast, which went on to receive National Grid approval and the prestigious Pipeline Industries Guild Utility Pipeline Technology Award. This year the TT-UK Roadshow Trailer was introduced fully equipped with working or static display products enabling all TT's latest innovations to be seen and demonstrated first hand in any location.
TT-UK's employment philosophy has always been to have a youth policy introducing new faces with young enthusiastic ideas to encourage both the experienced and not so experienced to learn from one another and to work together for the future success of the company. Some members of TT-UK staff have remained with the company in excess of 20 years. It is this proven capable experience which is synonymous with TT-UK's continued success both here and in many overseas sales outlets.
Modern communications systems have always been key to our success particularly with the increased sales opportunities in the export market. Sales and technical engineers regularly visit far away places like India, Malaysia, South Africa, to name but a few. Overseas activities are supported by a strong distributor network where agents and distributors are encouraged to assist TT-UK to capitalise on the opportunities presented to them by actively promoting our complete range of Trenchless Technology systems. For example India has achieved many early successes selling the GRUNDODRILL Horizontal Directional Drilling equipment. GRUNDOPILEs sold to South Africa, GRUNDOMATs and GRUNDORAMs to Nigeria and GRUNDOBURST and GRUNDOPIT to Singapore and Ireland. TT-UK wishes to thank all its sales partners for their continued support.
Customer after sales service remains a number one priority at TT-UK and no amount of praise can be given that would truly thank Nigel Gardener, Customer Services Director, Roger Atherton, Business Development Manager and Stephen Buckle, Technical Manager, for their contribution over the last 25 years.
David Toms, Managing Director and a founder of TT-UK and TT Ireland would like to take this opportunity to thank our many hundreds of loyal customers all the staff in Bedford and Navan for their valued support and commitment to the Company. May this success continue for the next 25 years and more.
