During this time, he has been instrumental in making Axelent UK one of the top selling Axelent Distributors. He is personally involved in overseeing all the large and bespoke projects, which Axelent undertakes.

Mark William Flintoft (Quasar Automation Ltd) Mark joined Quasar Automation in 2002 as a 16-year-old apprentice.  He spent his first four years learning basic engineering and manufacturing skills but following a serious motorcycle accident, transferred to the design office to learn about CAD. He was instrumental in converting the company to using SolidWorks 3D CAD, which has transformed the way in which bespoke systems are designed. Mark now has full responsibility for product design at Quasar Automation and is always striving to integrate the most advanced and relevant technology into the company’s systems.
