Far East visit

GTL's Research and Development Manager, Peter Shafe, has recently returned from a visit to China, Korea and Taiwan to meet our distributors there. We feel it's extremely important to visit our valued distributors as often as we can, as well as hosting them in the UK, in order to get a feel for how our tools are used in different markets globally. This ensures that our research and development focus is on the areas which our customers feel are most important to them; special requests are always of interest to our engineers. During the trip, Peter was able to meet end-users and receive plenty of useful feedback on our existing tool range as well as innovative ideas for future development.
