New Maschio service manager & technical support at Opico

Opico has appointed Alex Smith as Maschio service manager and UK technical support to cover Opico, HE-VA, SKY, Strautmann and Maschio brands in East Anglia, Hertfordshire and Bedfordshire.

Having farming in his blood led Alex to an agricultural engineering qualification, which was followed by a couple of years doing on-farm apprenticeships where he gained a valuable insight into hands-on farming.  For over 20 years Alex has worked for a well-known supplier of agricultural parts, working in most functions; from sales and demonstrations to most recently being responsible for product development.

Commenting, Angus Steven, Opico after-sales director said, ‘Alex brings with him a wealth of knowledge and experience and we are delighted to have him on board.’

On his new appointment Alex said, ‘Joining Opico is a new and exciting challenge for me.  It has given me a shift in focus from my years working primarily with parts, to resolving issues with complete machines.’
