Wegoma advances under new name – Avantek Machinery

February 1, 2016

Wegoma

Named 2015 NFA Machinery Company of the Year, Wegoma Machinery Sales has changed its name to Avantek Machinery Ltd with effect from February 2016 – reflecting the growth and expansion of the company.

Avantek Machinery Ltd will still be supplying the trusted Wegoma brand of machinery, but the decision to change the name has been taken to herald another step forward in the company’s development.

As well as offering the full range of Wegoma machinery and the highly successful Supercut range of custom built machining Liniar Patio bannercentres, Avantek is now an official Urban dealer and stockist of Urban spares – many available off the shelf.  Offering a wider choice of brands allows Avantek to provide an even better service to window fabricators all over the UK.

With Quanex Building Products’ resources behind the company, Avantek Machinery is able to provide a different approach to other machinery providers by offering much reduced lead times and often immediate availability of machinery from stock.

Together with an in-house, fully trained service team, software and mechanical telephone support and direct trouble-shooting access via remote connection over the internet, the Avantek team delivers unparalleled standards of service to the UK window fabricator for both installation and after-care.

Supplying a full and comprehensive product range from hand tools, up to and including fully CNC controlled production lines, the team’s comprehensive industry experience has been gained over decades to address the various challenges of window manufacture.

“We felt it was the ideal time for a change of name to reflect the growing diversity of the company,” explained Flamstead CEO Roger Hartshorn.

“Now that we’re an official Urban dealer and stockist, as well as supplying various other quality brands, we needed a name to signify that. Avantek was chosen as it’s made up of the Italian word ‘avanti’, meaning ‘to move forward’, combined with the cutting edge technology used in our machinery range.

“We are obviously delighted to continue to supply Wegoma machinery, as well as our own high-end Supercut machining centres, but the new name and branding will help us move forward with other exciting plans during 2016 and beyond.”

In addition to the name change, the Avantek team is being strengthened with the appointment of Dave Phillips to Technical Director. Dave has been instrumental in the development of the Supercut machining centre and reports to Managing Director Dave Watts. The senior management team is completed by Sales Director Gary Mayer and National Sales Manager Nigel Bishop.

Avantek Machinery will be exhibiting at the FIT Show in April – stand 330 in Hall 3 – pay the team a visit to find out what else is new for 2016.
