Axtec appoints Alasdair Littlejohn to develop export sales

Axtec International of Runcorn, which is the UK’s only specialist in vehicle axle weighing, has appointed Alasdair Littlejohn as Export Sales Manager, confirming the company’s intention to establish the Axtec brand in markets throughout Europe (including Ireland) and beyond.

Alasdair assumes responsibility for sales of the complete Axtec product range overseas – including dynamic, static and portable weighing equipment and an exciting new range of on-board load indicator products. He will develop his already extensive knowledge of overseas markets, focusing on vehicle operators, local and national government, commercial vehicle distributors and vehicle bodybuilders, while forming third-party agreements where appropriate.

Based in Worcestershire, Alasdair brings vast experience of the weighing industry to Axtec, boasting extensive engineering-based knowledge of weighing products, and having worked for 23 years for one of the world’s largest load and force sensor manufacturers. He also possesses a proven track record of business development, working with OEMs and resale partners throughout Europe, Africa and the Middle East.

“Naturally, I am delighted that we have been able to attract an individual of the calibre of Alasdair Littlejohn,” said Axtec Managing Director Keith Gresham, “he has an impressive CV for sure, along with the credentials to drive business growth in overseas markets where I know our products will be of great benefit to a wide range of customers. We see huge potential to develop our business interests abroad,” he said, “and Alasdair is uniquely placed to identify and implement sales strategies in different markets.”

Since 1991, Axtec has been operating in the UK as the only company specialising in the manufacture of dynamic axle weighing equipment. Axtec products are used nationally by UK enforcement authorities, utility providers, transport operators and waste management companies, looking to maximise their loads while maintaining operational and legal compliance.

Axtec’s products include the revolutionary on-board load indicator, which helps drivers avoid axle and gross vehicle overloads whilst operating away from base, and the world’s most accurate dynamic axle weighbridge.
