New UK distribution arrangement for RDS Technology
South East and South West distributors acquire North Eastern business and merge to form RDS MME
RDS Technology have announced the merger of their distributors for the South East and the South West and the creation of a new distribution company.
When Tony and Jan Heath – managing directors of RDS North Eastern – retired towards the end of 2015, their Lincoln-based business was acquired by RDS South East and RDS South West and a new company, RDS MME, was created, to maintain and enhance customer care and field support in all three regions.
Headquartered in Essex, RDS MME (Mobile Machinery Electronics) also have a brand new business hub in Wiltshire to manage their extensive network of account managers and service engineers. The RDS MME management team is headed by Roger Hawker and John Evans, who between them have more than 50 years’ experience with RDS weighing technology.
In addition, Steve Chidley has been promoted to operations manager and will oversee the existing service engineers as well as two new recruits, whilst Jon O’Loughlin has been appointed as sales manager, Belinda Capstaff-Taylor continues as customer accounts manager and Bianca Skudder has been appointed as company secretary.
The RDS MME team has been further strengthened by the addition of Graeme Melvill as account manager for the North East region. RDS Technology’s other UK distributors, RDS North Western, RDS Scotland and David McCollum in Northern Ireland, are unaffected by the change and continue to operate as normal.
