Altus, a leading distributor of capital equipment for the electronics assembly industry in the UK and Ireland, is further strengthening its team in the UK with the announcement of a new spare parts and logistics coordinator to support the company in an operational capacity. With a strong background in sales and customer service, Sulman Shabbir brings with him a wealth of experience which will help to add to Altus' level of service.

As the company expands, the importance of ensuring customers receive equipment and accompanying goods efficiently has never been more important. Richard Booth, managing director of Altus, explains, "With our portfolio growing, it is important that we can provide a fault-free and stream-lined delivery service to our customers. Sulman will be instrumental in helping to facilitate the shipping of products from one destination to another. Another important activity within his position is to manage activities throughout the order fulfilment and transportation cycle, ensuring deadlines and expectations are met.

Sulman's employment comes at a time of expansion for Altus as they increase staff numbers to support their ethos of providing exceptional customer service. In the wake of the move to SMART manufacturing, Altus is implementing additions and changes to ensure equipment and support meets the future Industry 4.0 ideals.
