Andrew Thomson is an expert Scale Technician, with 22 years’ experience.
Andrew Thomson recently joined the Atrax New Zealand team after spending the last 22 years repairing and calibrating weighbridges and scales in South Africa. He was born in South Africa, and worked for the Natal Scale Company there for more than two decades. In that role he installed, serviced and supported weighbridges and other large scales on industrial sites across the KwaZulu-Natal province.
“The sites I’m servicing now have very similar equipment to what I’m used to, although I am seeing some different models,” he says.
“The Natal Scale Company is quite large and well known in South Africa, so I’m experienced with a wide variety of weighbridge and scale systems.”
Andrew arrived in New Zealand from South Africa in January of this year. He is married with two children, a 13 year old girl and a 10 year old boy. Andrew enjoys enduro motorcycling and mountain biking. He says his children are enjoying the safer environment in New Zealand, including being able to walk to school.
