Trimble precision agriculture specialists Vantage, formerly AS Communications, has announced the appointment of Harry Hamer as an installation and service engineer.
Joining the company from a CNH dealership, Mr Hamer will cover the north-west of the company’s trading area, England and Wales, and is looking forward to applying his knowledge of modern machinery architecture and develop it further with Trimble.
“I have had an interest in agriculture and equipment from a young age which has seen me pursue a career in mechanical and electrical engineering. Joining the Vantage team will allow me to build on this with the added benefit of being exposed to all makes, models and types of machinery,” he said.
Coming from an agricultural background, Mr Hamer graduated from Reaseheath College with a distinction in Land Based Technology. Following work in the local farming community, he then joined a CNH dealership and gained experience with diagnostics, service management and integration with implements.
“Having used the systems on farm and then supporting customers who use them, I can see the pitfalls in not being dedicated to a particular area of technology as there are so many variables. Joining Vantage allows me to focus on the technology side of Agriculture, which is what I enjoy, it will allow me to focus on delivering a solution for customers. Being able to provide support and back up on farm, by phone and remotely using the Wi-Fi connectivity will be hugely satisfying, for both me and the customer,” Mr Hamer explained.
