NZ Environmental Engineering Export - Know How, Can Do, With Heart

Armatec Environmental Ltd's Sales & Design Engineer, Shane Pope is branching out, to the United Kingdom.

Shane Pope, (Sales Manager, Armatec Environmental Ltd), and his wife Melissa Williams-Pope (Entrepreneurial success coach, @MelissaWilliamsPope ) are up for an adventure.   Today they take off for the UK.   First stop is the IFAT Trade Fair in Munich where Shane will be establishing contacts in the European region. From there, Shane & Melissa will set up home in the UK.  Shane will develop and manage new and existing business opportunities for Armatec throughout Europe and the Middle East.  Melissa will continue writing, performing and inspiring entrepreneurial women with her transformational online programs.

Quality products, turn key solutions, specialist engineering knowledge, and continual innovation based on over 40 years’ experience have enabled Armatec's reputation to grow on the international market.  Ken Holyoake, Managing Director, recalls; “Before we installed air pollution control scrubbers in Egypt, we thought, ‘Who in the world would buy scrubbers from NZ and ship them to Egypt?!'“ Ken’s depth of knowledge and experience ensured the success of the Armatec scrubbers in Egypt, and this has opened our eyes to the potential for Armatec to do business all over the world, working with industry to reduce emissions to the environment.

  NZ made air pollution control scrubbers in Egypt signalled new possibilities in providing engineering expertise to the world.

This time it's Shane making the move, taking with him New Zealand grown engineering expertise.  He is set to get hands on, working with industries to reduce their emissions to the environment.   Shane will be well placed for providing engineering expertise to our international customers, from design to commissioning, and will allow Armatec solutions to be accessed more easily in the northern hemisphere. And with a lower carbon footprint.

Shane is great at what he does. As a highly skilled engineer, and holding a Masters in Engineering Management, Shane is a key member of Armatec who will continue to provide valuable advice to Armatec’s customers at home and abroad. We are happy to have found a solution that is a win-win-win for the environment, for Armatec’s customers, and for Shane & Melissa’s career development & personal goals.

Opportunities to innovate crop up and we want to catch them.  With increasing international business and the capability of online connectivity, it makes sense to extend Armatec’s reach in the global market.  Ultimately this will facilitate the deeper understanding of our international customers’ unique challenges. 

Everyone at Armatec NZ wishes Shane and Melissa the best and look forward to further innovation opportunities that this move will prompt and a post card for the lunch room fridge.
