Furthermore, new additions to the sales team have resulted in orders from a range of industry sectors, including pharmaceutical, automotive and food.

Working for renowned market leaders in the specialist technology sectors of machine vision and robotics, Alwyn’s knowledge of the process and packaging arena will help build on existing success. Karl Booth BEng, Applications Engineer, brings 10 years’ of mechanical engineering experience in the motorsport industry. After three years in the biological containment sector, he has joined Astech Projects as an integral part of the team, to develop innovative technical solutions.
