Detectronic has strengthened and restructured its leadership team following strong global sales and a series of ground-breaking new product developments.

The wastewater network monitoring specialist whose clients include the UK water utilities as well as national construction firms, food & drink manufacturers, industrial and chemical companies, has secured significant new long-term contracts in the last 12 months. In support of this growth, Detectronic’s managing director, Steve Woods, has restructured his leadership team.

Steve has assumed the newly created role of executive chairman and has appointed current sales director, Neil Butler, as managing director.

“After over fourteen years at the helm of Detectronic, it’s time for me to move away from the coal-face and refocus on strategy and guidance,” explains Steve.

“Since joining us in 2018, Neil has made a huge impact on the business in terms of sales growth and business development. In his role as sales director, he has opened lots of new doors and taken advantage of every opportunity that’s arisen to expand our horizons. He is ideally placed and connected to take us to the next level and beyond – I have every confidence in his abilities to further grow and diversify Detectronic.”

Added Neil: “I’m honoured and inspired that Steve has invited me to lead the business at such a key stage in its development.”

“Over the last five years we have created and developed a pioneering series of wastewater monitoring solutions, including our LIDoTT® Smart range. These new systems are achieving unprecedented global sales and providing clients with the tools they need to implement superlative, real-time sewer network monitoring. At the same time, we have built and nurtured new client relationships as well as reinforcing existing ones to secure the long-term success of the company.”

“It’s my focus to continue our commitment to collaborative working within the global wastewater industry and the development of exceptional products and services that will benefit of all of our clients.”

Concludes Neil: “The future looks very bright for the business, and I’m determined to build on the many successes that Steve and his exceptional team have already accomplished.”
