CGTech to expand and restructure UK operation Due to the continued expansion of the Vericut user base for CNC machine simulation, verification and optimisation — along with the growing use of the Vericut Composites Applications Suite for advanced non-metallic materials — Hove-based CGTech ( recently announced that it is expanding and restructuring its UK operation.

In May, the company will be dividing the UK into three areas, each with a dedicated sales engineer supporting existing and potential customers.

The South and West of England, Wales, Northern Ireland and Ireland remain under Scott Ravenscroft, while two new Sales Engineers will cover the rest of the country; Ian Llewellyn will be based in the Midlands, and Tim Mitchell will cover the North of England and Scotland.

Managing director Tony Shrewsbury said: “The appointment of these two new sales engineers is testament to the positive growth plans of CGTech in the UK. Further appointments to expand our technical support team will be announced soon.”

With a background that initially started in production engineering and manufacturing with Renishaw, Mr Mitchell has extensive sales experience gained with that company; he has also worked in sales at DMG Mori, as well as the measurement and inspection equipment company Nikon Metrology.

Mr Llewellyn started as a machinist and tool maker at the plastic injection moulding tool specialist Mason Pinder. He later provided technical support, as well as software demonstrations, for NC Graphics before moving into sales.

When the company’s Machining Strategist business was acquired by Vero Software in 2002, he took on the portfolio of CAD/CAM products offered by Vero, alongside the Machining Strategist CAM solution.

CGTech’s John Reed and Rob Lightfoot retired from the company just after the MACH 2018 exhibition, with each having completed well over 20 years of service with the company.
