Transtherm strengthens engineering team with two appointments
Leading innovator of dry and
adiabatic water cooling technologies, Transtherm, has strengthened its sales
team of skilled mechanical engineers with the appointment of applications
engineer, Robert Amuna, and engineering apprentice, Ethan Steadman.
Robert Amuna joins the team from an
international placement working in thermal power, bringing with him a passion
for heat transfer theory and a knowledge base which allows him to work across the
spectrum of Transtherm products when selecting and designing cooling plant.
Working specifically for power
generation and data science sectors, Robert will work directly with new and
existing clients to meet their cooling requirements with data-driven
specification and bespoke plant design.
Starting his engineering
apprenticeship with Transtherm’s trade and OEM sector, 18-year-old Ethan
Steadman joins the team on a three-year apprenticeship programme through Apprenticeship
Supported by senior members of the
team, Ethan will complete his customer service apprenticeship, whilst learning
to design and specify Transtherm’s full portfolio of cooling equipment, using
their unique data-driven specification approach.
Tim Bound, sales director for
Transtherm, comments on the importance of apprentices to the business:
“When specifying such a technical
product, across a variety of niche industries, we believe it is hugely
advantageous to grow your own talent through apprenticeships. Our sales team is
made up of highly skilled mechanical engineers who use their education and
industry experience to work with customer to produce the best possible
solutions. This is a key point of difference for us and one which we seek to
maintain by nurturing the skills of enthusiastic young engineers who are
willing to learn from the bottom, up.”
Nick Bound, Transtherm’s managing
“We are proud to be one of the only
manufacturers in our sector with a sales team which is made up of engineers
with a range of backgrounds, including mechatronics, business management,
mechanical engineering and robotics. It is this technical approach to customer
sales, alongside our quality manufacturing ethos, which gives our cooling plant
the competitive edge.
“As our sales team becomes more
attuned to the specific industries we service, it is important that we build
our team with strategic appointments and apprentice training opportunities and
we are delighted to welcome Robert and Ethan to the team.”
