Dugard has strengthened its team with the appointment of two new area sales managers.

Liam Scaramuzza will enhance Dugard’s sales activities in the North of England and Renny Thomas has joined the company to target sales in the South East.

The South Coast company has enjoyed growth with its diverse brand portfolio, and the new appointments will enable Dugard to bolster its customer sales, service and support in these two key areas. Mr Scaramuzza joined Dugard in March as an area sales manager for the North and his previous experience will serve him well in underpinning the growth of the brand in the area.

Apprenticeship served, Mr Scaramuzza vastly expanded his experience with 11 years of machine shop experience on both manual and CNC machines. Following this, he moved into technical sales with a leading cutting tool distributor. During this eight-year employment, his enthusiasm and desire to succeed brought numerous promotions. From 2016 to 2024, Mr Scaramuzza progressed from technical sales engineer to product training manager, technical sales manager and finally business development manager.

Mr Thomas has 26 years of machine shop experience before moving into CAD/CAM training and technical support. From there, he spent the last 12 years as an area sales manager with a manufacturer of turning centres. Looking to move to a business with a more diverse and expansive portfolio and a larger sales area were two of the key reasons that Mr Thomas joined the growing Dugard family.

Sales director, Colin Thomson, commented: “We are delighted to welcome Liam and Renny to the Dugard team. They both have a proven track record in the industry with a technical understanding and ability to solve problems for customers that will be a genuine asset to Dugard. Both have spent several years working with manufacturers in their respective regions, so their local reputations and insight will be a huge benefit for Dugard and manufacturers in the areas.

“Dugard has everything from cost-competitive machine tools and high-end solution-driven machine tools through to sliding head turning centres – the opportunity to service a wide customer base with this exciting and diverse range of machines and the fact that we are a family business was a factor in these excellent engineers wanting to join Dugard.”
