Following the launch of the new “WeldCheck” Product Range, Ether NDE is expanding the Commercial Team.

Gath Cheyne, formerly of Magnaflux, GE Inspection Technologies and Pruftechnik, has been appointed as European Sales Manager. Gath started his NDT career in 1998, whilst serving in the Royal Air Force; Gath left the RAF in 2006 and joined Pruftechnik as their UK NDT Product Manager. Gath was responsible for sales of Eddy Current Systems and Testing Machines. In 2007 Gath was recruited by GE Inspection Technologies, as an Area Sales Manager where he was responsible for sales of Eddy Current, Ultrasonic and Hardness Testing Equipment. In 2010 Gath, was hired by Magnaflux UK as Sales Manager and was responsible for managing their extensive distributor network, which covers Europe, the Middle East and Africa.

Following Gath’s appointment, he told NDT News:

“I am delighted to be joining Mike, John and the team at ETher NDE. Together we have a fantastic opportunity to build on the strong base established during the last 3 years. I have followed the growth of Ether NDE since its founding in 2010 and look forward to assisting Ether NDE in their goal to be recognised as the leading innovator of the global Eddy Current community.”

Mike Reilly, Executive Chairman, said:

“Gath is a very welcome recruit to our team. Experienced and knowledgeable NDT Sales and Applications Engineers are a highly prized resource these days. Gath has a very broad knowledge of NDT Applications and Technology, that will not only benefit ETher NDE, but will also be available to my “associated Companies”, Imaginos NDE and Baugh and Weedon. In fact, Gath will have prime responsibility for Imaginos NDE sales in selected European Markets and will combine that with the primary role of developing ETher NDE business in Europe. Having previously worked with John Hansen and Pete Burrows at GE, I am very confident that we now have an unmatched Applications and Support Team for our UK and European Clients”.
