I truly admire how Peter and the rest of the team at SGM have radically changed the approach towards the customers by providing real solutions, such as the G-range - world’s first maintenance free moving heads, and I look forward to help improving our sale and service structures within the UK and the USA to serve the many SGM users at best.”
