Proud Grandson carries on Family tradition as Head of Sales for Reef Trenchless Technology
Nov 27, 2015
TT-UK have worked with their sales partner Reef Trenchless Technology of Johannesburg for almost twenty years and the recent and very sudden and sad passing of Chris Elhers, (former Managing Director of Reef), was a shock to everyone. Tyler Craayenstein (the Grandson of Chris) has now taken over as Head of Sales for the Trenchless Technology Business and is proud to be continuing to build on his Grandfather’s firm foundations.
This September saw the return of BAUMA Conexpo in South Africa where Reef Trenchless Technology were in attendance to continue to extol the virtues of Trenchless Technology. Reef were showcasing the latest innovations of the Tracto-Technik range of No Dig equipment and were joined by Roger Atherton, Business Development Manager for TT-UK.
Whilst the overall number of visitors to the Show was disappointing, the four day event did provide a steady stream of interested visitors and customers to the Reef Trenchless Technology stand and as the popularity of Trenchless Technology continues to build in this region, Reef gained a number of Grundomat Mole orders and received several strong and lucrative enquires from interested existing customers who were looking to upgrade their current HDD machines to larger and newer models from the Tracto-Technik range. A busy time will follow as Reef continues to follow up all the enquiries taken.
Roger Atherton said “TT-UK together with the TT Group will continue to provide full sales support and back up to Reef’s sales of No-Dig equipment in the South Africa region and we wish Tyler every success in his challenging new role as Head of Sales.”
