Spurdle stated “The decision to move from Hydroscand Wrexham was a big step for me personally but after looking at the plans Hydraquip have and their continued successes and expansions nationally, it was an easy move and I am looking forward to this new challenge and even more so I am looking forward to be able to offer many of my old customers the quality of service and a wider range of products than I could previously.” James Roth also from Hydroscand Wrexham joins as an Internal Sales Representative.
