Irritech would like to extend a hearty (yet slightly delayed) welcome to our new Sales Engineer Ian Marriott.
Ian has taken over from Eduard Boettiger from the 1st September in the South African office (Edu is still with us, fear not) . Ian will now be taking care of all the customers whom Edu would normally have dealt with. Ian has been working with Edu over the past month and a half to familiarize himself with Edu's ongoing projects, which Ian will now see to completion. For those of you who haven't met Ian, he has hit the ground running and is ready to help with any of your irrigation needs.

Edu has not left the company entirely, but is rather relocating to our Zambian Branch. Edu and his newly obtained pilots license (Congratulations Edu!) is taking the bold step of moving with his wife (Jayde) and young daughter (Sienna) up to Zambia to join our great team there. Edu will be bolstering our engineering staff, making it possible to give more attention to our existing customers and to hopefully expand our horizons. We wish Edu and his family all the best for their move and settling into their new home! While Edu is keeping his South African contact details, he also has some new Zambian contact details, see below.
