Intelligent radar detection systems manufacturer AGD Systems has appointed four new key members of staff to strengthen its team as business continues to expand significantly.
The firm which continues to see its strategic business grow in areas of highways monitoring, speed enforcement and urban traffic control predicts that export revenue will rise by 20% to 40% in 2016 as overseas interest in its radar detection systems in the Middle East, South Korea, Taiwan and Brazil increases.
In the commercial department, Stephen Trinder joins as AGD’s new commercial manager, responsible for managing AGD’s major clients in the core urban traffic control sector, including local and city authority partners. He has a wealth of client-facing experience of delivering innovative solutions to strategic customers and is a qualified PRINCE2 (Projects in Controlled Environments) practitioner. Stephen will work closely with fellow AGD commercial manager Greg Baker and is already adapting to the needs of the ITS sector.
Carl Jarvis has been appointed as commercial engineer to provide technical installation and client training support for AGD’s new, innovative range of highways monitoring and enforcement radars. Carl brings with him several years of experience working on projects for the Highways Agency to install above-ground radar solutions on the UK’s motorway network. He will work closely with AGD’s business development manager, Oliver Bain and the engineering team to facilitate product trials and installations for highway monitoring and incident detection in the UK and internationally.
Based in AGD’s new, state-of-the-art £1million Research & Development centre, which opened last year will be two new appointments. Max Denning has joined AGD on a one-year engineering internship prior to studying Computer Science at the University of Reading, and Anurag Lalithambikai who will be responsible for systems requirement analysis, hardware design, firmware development and software design using C#. He has a BEng in Electronics and Instrumentation Engineering and an MSc in Advanced IT from the University of South Wales.
AGD Systems managing director Pete Hutchinson said: "The strength of our business is down to the quality, talents and calibre of our staff.
"We are committed to designing, developing and delivering the world’s most advanced intelligent radar detection systems from our UK base in Gloucestershire, south-west England and in order to do that, we need to work with the best people in the business. That’s why we are expanding our commercial and engineering teams so that we continue to stay at the very forefront of the worldwide traffic management industry."
