Matthew Smith

ROSYTH-headquartered specialist flooring contractor Advanced Traditional Screeding (ATS) has announced the appointment of Matthew Smith as operations manager.

With 12 years of industrial concrete flooring experience, his arrival has been described as part of ongoing expansion for the Fife firm.

Matthew joins from Technic Concrete Floors Ltd, where he was in charge of the Wigan-based company’s Scottish operation since 2016.

He also spent four years in the Middle East, where he was involved in projects across the GCC and Asia, including the construction of rides on the IMG World of Adventure Theme Park in Dubai and a large cold store facility in Riyadh, Saudi Arabia.

A board member of The Concrete Society Scotland region, ATS revealed his primary focus will be on ensuring the successful roll out of ENERGYSCREED, the recently launched full floorzone division of the business.

Matthew said, “I have known ATS’ managing director Jason Lister for a number of years and have tracked the company’s rapid progression under his guidance. I am delighted to join the business and be part of the ENERGYSCREED roll-out. This is an exciting period for the company and I’m really looking forward to being part of the ATS team, who are all working towards a common goal.

“Jason has built a fantastic team here with a wealth of industry knowledge and experience and that was a big draw for me. It was an opportunity I couldn’t turn down. There is a lot of positivity surrounding the business which is great.

“What the company has done with ENERGYSCREED is really going to expand industry boundaries. There are ambitious plans ahead and I’m excited at the prospect of helping ATS make even more of a significant impact in the sector, both in Scotland and further afield.”

Matthew’s arrival follows the recent appointment of David Crosby as sales director.

MD Jason Lister added, “Matt is well respected in the industry and I’m delighted to welcome him to the team at ATS. He is another important piece of the jigsaw we are putting together here and his experience will help further develop the business as we move forward with our plans.”
