Perth based construction diamond blade and core drill supplier Diatech has appointed two new staff members as it looks to expand its operations in London and the South East.

The move is designed to help Diatech achieve its ambitious growth plans of £8m turnover by 2022.

The family run business was established in 1994 by entrepreneur Jeremy Burgess and is known within the industry for the quality of its blades and drills and their distinctive pink colour.

Creating less dust, less vibration, and with an increased longevity, Diatech blades mean less down time, more productivity and less potential for any HSE issues.

Customers include engineering and building contractors, precast concrete manufacturers, specialist drilling contractors and utility companies.

With twenty-five years of global sales experience under his belt, Peter Waggott joins the company as Sales Manager with a brief to develop and grow the sales team at Diatech, whilst also taking on the role of Business Development Manager in the Perth and Inverness areas.

Rosie Jones joins the company as Business Development Manager from CTD Tiles and will be responsible for the development of new business in Fife, Edinburgh, The Borders, Glasgow and the West Coast.

With one team member already working remotely in Swindon, Diatech has plans to increase its presence in London and the South East and will be making key appointments in the coming months.

Jeremy Burgess, founder and MD of Diatech, said: “This is a really exciting time for the business as we take on new staff and look to grow our business, both within Scotland and further afield, but with a real focus on London and the South East.

“We have ambitions to become the UK’s number one premium diamond blade and core drill supplier, and with our new staff members and strengthened team I have every reason to believe we can achieve this goal.”
