The newest member of the team at ATV Services Scotland is Alasdair Beattie, who starts a new position as sales manager for the company, which is owned by the Yuille family.

He is well established in the agricultural sector having worked for two well-known suppliers in the same field and as well as taking a lead in sales for the company and assisting all the current depots, he will be leading an expansion into the Central Region, from his home north of Glasgow, with news expected on that soon.

"I have known Alasdair for many years and when we envisaged this new role, he was the only person we had in mind so am delighted to welcome him on board. We look forward to being of greater service to our established and new customers going forward," said John Yuille, managing director with ATV Services Scotland, which has operating centres in Hollybush, near Ayr (the head office), Newton Stewart and Lochgilphead.
