Continuing to deliver their vision for UK customers, Vantage ASC have strengthened their service and support team further with the addition of Mike Coxe.

Mike has been working in Agriculture for the last 14 years as both an operator and in management roles giving him a clear understanding of customer needs when it comes to GPS and technology systems in the field.

“I have always had an interest in Agriculture and the technology which is involved. Having had experience of Vantage in the past as an operator looking for support in the field, the opportunity to join the team and help others with technology was something I had to explore further”.

Mike studied Agriculture & Crop Production at Riseholme College before taking a lead operator role in Lincolnshire which would see his first encounter with Trimble equipment in 2010. Leaving the RTK equip

ped CAT MT765c behind, Mike continued to operate and manage equipment throughout Lincolnshire and Cambridgeshire which includes exposure to controlled traffic farming. Most recently a field manager at a potato growing organisation Mike has been responsible for all aspects of the crop cycle and associated operations.

“I have been fortunate to see a wide range of businesses during my career and worked with some inspiring people, it will be a pleasure to use these skills and experience to help Vantage customers. Being able to introduce and maintain precision technology on farms and have access to a great selection of products is exciting, especially during this period of change within UK Agriculture.”

Andrew Williams, National Service Manager at Vantage ASC, says ‘we are always looking for people with the right attitude and a passion for our industry and we have been fortunate to find Mike. Based in Nottinghamshire, Mike will strengthen our geographical coverage with an aim to further improve our customer response times. Being an experienced operator and manager, Mike has a great understanding of customer requirements and priorities with a desire to deliver’

‘Mikes appointment will bring our team of remote personnel up to 12 which is great. Having a strong distribution of sales and service people throughout England & Wales, focussed only on technology is really important for us. We continue to grow in line with our customer needs and continue to develop and move forwards with Mike on board.’
