Prior to his promotion, Grocott has been serving as Operations Manager for the Company which involves working with all departments to help the business develop and grow through improved business efficiency and the use of technology. He will be continuing to focus on this area in his new role, as well as looking for new ways that Altecnic can support the needs and future needs of their growing customer base. This September will mark Grocott’s sixteen-year anniversary with the company.

He was amongst the team involved in facilitating the company’s relocation to their current premises in 2009. This saw Altecnic close the business on a Friday and reopen ready for business at the new location the following Monday, which was a fantastic achievement for the company.

Grocott comments: “I am delighted to have been promoted to Operations Director for Altecnic. Over my sixteen years with the company, I have been focused on developing and growing the business through the use of technology in order to meet the needs of our customers. I look forward to continuing to build on this strategy in my new role.”

We look forward to seeing what achievements and initiatives he brings to the table in his new role.”
