LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM—The staff at Wavetronix UK has expanded in response to increased demand for Wavetronix products, and the growth has necessitated a move to a larger office. Thomas Sheppard joined the Wavetronix team in 2014, and Wavetronix UK officially opened the new office in the Gatwick area south of London in March 2015.
“The response to Wavetronix and SmartSensor HD in the United Kingdom has been tremendous, and we have already outgrown our previous space,” says Paul Flegg, Wavetronix sales manager for the UK. “This new location accommodates our team very well and provides us ample room for continued growth.”

The Wavetronix UK team includes Flegg; Gartland O’Neill, Sales Manager – UK; and Sheppard, who serves as an application engineer for the UK and Northern Europe. Sheppard’s responsibilities include technical training, project implementation and customer support.
“We are delighted to welcome Thomas to the UK team,” Flegg says. “This appointment reflects the commitment Wavetronix has to the success of its customers and the value we place on the relationships we’ve established with the transportation professionals in our region.”
Sheppard’s duties will allow him to assist integrators and contractors as they deploy Wavetronix sensors. He holds a bachelor’s degree in computer systems engineering from the University of Kent and believes his experience troubleshooting and designing different technologies will be a benefit to the traffic industry.
“I enjoy working on the practical application of technology, and I find the prospect of traveling and interacting with customer on-site highly appealing,” Sheppard says. “I’m also excited to work in the traffic industry, where technology is clearly the way forward in dealing with the increasing amounts of traffic on our road systems.”
Flegg says Sheppard is fully qualified to lead pilot projects and organize training for integrators and installers.
“Wavetronix works very hard to ensure that their customers receive the best detection performance possible,” Flegg says. “Thomas’ expertise will help to form a strong technical presence for Wavetronix in the UK and Northern Europe, and will be an important part of our growth in this market.”
