ANT Telecom announces
expansion in Britain with new
Scottish office in Glasgow

ANT Telecom has opened its second UK office based in Glasgow and has appointed two further members of staff. Sheila Gilbertson has been appointed as area sales manager and Craig Murney as field project engineer for Scotland as part of ANT Telecom's continued expansion and ongoing growth strategy. Provider of tailored, integrated communications solutions ANT Telecom has worked with customers in the utilities, manufacturing and distillery industries in Scotland for over 15 years, including a major UK Energy provider and a leading premium drinks business. It is this growing success, plus ANT Telecom's specific proposition for lone workers in remote geographies, that has driven the expansion.

Klaus Allion, managing director, ANT Telecom, says,

' Lone working has a particular resonance in manufacturing arenas in Scotland such as energy, oil and gas, chemical plants and distilleries. In these disparate environments, employees are often required to work on-site at the isolated extremes of production plants, or off-site in the seclusion of the field. Yet whilst physically they may appear cut off from the rest of the world, companies cannot afford for lone workers to be disconnected from the rest of the workforce; they must be available any time, any place, anywhere and of course be protected at all times. Our lone worker solution has proven highly valuable to our existing clients in Scotland; we recognised its particular appeal to similar organisations and wanted to invest in the region accordingly.”


Sheila Gilbertson joins ANT Telecom with over 25 years’ experience working within telecommunications companies and has expert knowledge of PABX, Network Services, VOIP, Mobile and Data Products. She will be account managing ANT Telecom’s existing clients based in Scotland to maximise ANT’s unique portfolio throughout the region.

She comments, “I am delighted to join the ANT Telecom team to build upon the excellent work that they have already done in the region and to maintain the strong relationships they have built with their existing clients.”

Craig Murney comes to ANT Telecom with 13 years’ experience specialising in bespoke radio telecommunications and IT systems for the British Army where he provided a high level of day to day operational support. He will be responsible for the installation, maintenance and repair of ANT’s telecommunications systems across over 40 sites covering the Scottish mainland and the Inner Hebrides islands, as well as the Republic of Ireland.

Commenting on the new appointments, Allion says, “I am pleased to welcome Sheila and Craig to the team. I am sure that their extensive experience will reinforce our existing relationships in Scotland and help us to build further long lasting ones.

He concludes, “The corporate expansion plans for ANT Telecom include increasing the business by 30% over the next three years, with 10% growth year on year till the end of 2015. Our expansion in Scotland will be key to achieving this objective.”
